KYBELLA® in Dallas, TX
EpiCentre Skin Care & Laser Center KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
Why Should I Consider This Treatment?
For both men and women, slimming down a double chin is one of the top cosmetic goals. That’s why our team at EpiCentre is excited to offer KYBELLA®. KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment for reducing fat under the jawline, commonly known as a “double chin.” This customized treatment naturally breaks down fat for improvement in the contour of your chin, without the risks of surgery.
Is KYBELLA® Right for Me?
KYBELLA® is often the best option for people who are bothered by the appearance of their double chin but are not comfortable with surgical procedures like liposuction. Ideal KYBELLA® candidates have realistic expectations and are in good overall health. Looking over KYBELLA® before and after photos helps to develop one’s expectations.
KYBELLA® may be right for you if:
- You’re bothered by submental fullness
- Surgery is not an option for you
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
How Does this Treatment Work?
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.
What to Expect With KYBELLA?
Before starting treatment, one of our Advanced Nurse Injectors will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, we will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals. Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
How Many KYBELLA® Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. One of our Advanced Nurse Injectors will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
How Long Will KYBELLA® Last?
Because the active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, completely destroys the submental fat stores and prevents them from accumulating more fatty deposits, the effects of KYBELLA® are permanent. In rare cases, patients may need retreatment after a few years. This can be necessary after weight gain, hormonal fluctuations, or other bodily changes that lead to the development of new submental fatty deposits.
Is There Downtime?
There is no downtime or recovery time needed with KYBELLA®. You are able to return to work after your treatment. There may be some swelling and tenderness; however, this will not keep you from doing your day-to-day activities.
