Kybella Santa Barbara – Double Chin Injections Santa Barbara

A new look without the need to undergo surgery – this is what you can expect form Kybella, one of the most revolutionary treatments for double chin, which has been recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

What is Kybella and How Does It Work?

Kybella is a prescription injectable that is primarily used for double chin treatment. It uses deoxycholic acid, which is naturally present in the body as well and helps in the absorption of fat. It is a cytolytic drug, which means that once it is injected into the tissue, it leads into the destruction of the physical membrane. Through its proper injection in the submental fat, it destroys fat cells, and hence, making it possible to get rid of a double chin. However, it has to be used properly on a special grid pattern to uniformly place the medication.


What to Expect During a Kybella Treatment?

It is a non-surgical procedure, so expect a safe and comfortable treatment. You can be confident that we will be handling you with utmost care, making sure that you won’t have to suffer from any significant pain as the procedure is completed. A temporary grid will be marked on your skin, which will be indicative of the areas that will be treated. A total of 12 to 50 injections will be administered, depending on individual circumstances. The Kybella treatment can be completed in as little as 20 minutes.

Who Is It For?

Are you thinking of how to lose your double chin? Are you often bothered and are you losing confidence because of your neck fat? If you are, which happens to be the case with 80% of people, Kybella is right for you! If you are more than 18 years old and in a good state of health, you will be an ideal candidate for this procedure. We will perform preliminary screening in order to evaluate your eligibility for the procedure. This will help to eliminate the possibility of suffering from adverse side effects.

What are the Side Effects?

Double chin injections through Kybella can prove to be a promising treatment, but it is inevitable that there are also side effects that can be apparent. It can lead to problems swallowing and nerve injuries in the jaw. Other common side effects include bruising, swelling, redness, pain, and hardness in the area that has been treated. All of these problems, however, will only be experienced if you undergo the procedure in the hands of an unqualified and less experienced professional. In our clinic, on the other hand, you can be confident that procedure will be performed in a professional and according to the manufacturer’s specifications by a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon.
