Kybella Injections Services St. Louis and Fairview Heights
Lose the Double Chin
Lingering fat under the chin, also known as submental fat, can be such a pain to get rid of. In fact, 1 in 4 people between the ages of 18-79 says they are bothered by submental fullness – the appearance of a “double chin.” Even people that are not overweight can be bothered by excess chin fat.
Reduces Chin Fat
Kybella, the chin fat injection, is injected in specific areas to decrease the amount of fat and tighten the overlying skin. It is the first, and only FDA approved product that dissolves fat from the “double chin.” It is a human-made version of deoxycholic acid, a substance our bodies produce naturally to absorb fat.
Although Kybella injections are primarily used under the chin, it can also be used to decrease the appearance of the jowls.
Best of all, results can be long-lasting. This is a big deal seeing as Botox lasts between 3-4 months and dermal fillers between 1-2 years. Individual timeframes and results may vary.
The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and a total of 2-4 treatments, spaced around 4 to 6 weeks apart, should be performed for best results. The area is anesthetized before treatment, but you may experience a mild burning sensation later that day. There may also be decreased sensation in the treatment area for a few days or weeks.
After the first treatment, the body’s natural inflammatory response may cause the treatment area to appear larger than before treatment. This is short-lived and will decrease.
All About it
Many people are bothered by fat under the chin. Even people who are not overweight experience this problem. The appearance of a double chin is unsightly, uncomfortable, and all too common. It can lead to poor self-esteem and discouragement because it is hard to get rid of. Exercising can play a big part in unwanted fat. However, the chin muscles are more laborious to workout.
Kybella can help. One in four people between the ages of 18-79 says they are bothered by their chin. However, with special treatment, Kybella can reduce or eliminate it.
How It Works
Injected in specific areas, Kybella is used to decrease the amount of fat and tighten skin. It’s the only FDA approved product that dissolves fat. Made from the substance that our bodies naturally produce to absorb fat, Kybella injections are safe and effective. Kybella is used under the chin but can be used to decrease jowls as well.
Kybella procedures only take about fifteen minutes, and after a total of 2-4 treatments every four to six weeks, the results can be long-lasting.

Individual timeframes and results may vary.

Why Use Kybella?
Unlike Botox, the effects of Kybella can be long-lasting. Botox is expensive and only lasts three to four months. However, the procedure and side effects you experience may be similar. Liposuction is another conventional treatment for this type of problem, and the results are long-lasting, but the procedure is more invasive and recovery time is longer. Individual timeframes and results may vary.
Who Should Not Receive Kybella in St. Louis and Fairview Heights?
It’s important to review any medical procedure with your doctor before continuing. He or she can help you determine if there are going to be any adverse effects of the procedure in conjunction with any medication you are currently taking or any medical conditions you have.
If you have an infection in the treatment area, it should be resolved before proceeding. If you had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin, talk to your healthcare provider about whether Kybella is right for you. Women should also talk to their provider if they are pregnant or breastfeeding. Studies have not been conducted on whether Kybella can pass into breast milk or not.
Trouble swallowing and bleeding problems can also affect whether you should receive this procedure, so make sure your doctor knows about these conditions as well as if you are taking medication that prevents the clotting of your blood.
What Are the Side Effects?
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, and redness. However, in extreme cases, nerve injury in the jaw can cause smile and facial muscle weakness, or trouble swallowing. It is important to take care of yourself and consult with your provider if you experience any of these side effects.
