How does Kybella in Rochester work?
Kybella is an injectable procedure designed to correct submental fullness to effectively contour your chin. The injectables are composed of deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the dietary tract and is responsible for breaking down fat cells. When Kybella is injected into the area, the excess fat will permanently be removed over time. After a series of 2-6 treatments over several months, you will see a noticeably more contoured and flattering profile.
Kybella in Rochester is an injectable procedure designed to correct submental fullness to effectively contour your chin. All profiles are different, so we make sure that all of our patients know that results can vary. Submental fat, or the fat under your chin, has different causes. Factors such as weight, age, and genetics all are reasons why someone may have an unwanted double chin.
The injectables are composed of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the dietary tract and is responsible for breaking down fat cells. In the dietary tract, deoxycholic acid breaks down fat through the destruction of the cell membrane. When the synthetic version is injected into submental fat, the same thing occurs. As the fat is dissolved, it becomes cellular debris and gets cleared into your body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems.
After a series of 2 to 6 Kybella treatments over several months, you will see a noticeably more contoured and flattering profile. Our patients gain permanent results because once those fat cells have been metabolized, your chin can no longer store excess fat.
Mark & Measure
Our physician will mark and measure the area below your chin to determine the exact area into which Kybella will be injected.
Numb the Area
Topical lidocaine will be applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. After 15 minutes, the area will be cleaned and a temporary grid will be applied to map out the area for precise injection.
Our physician will inject Kybella into the treatment area with a tiny, thin needle. The injections take approximately 5 minutes to complete. The temporary grid is removed with alcohol and ice is applied to the area for 15 minutes to reduce swelling.
Fat is Removed
Once the injection is complete, fat cells will be naturally broken down and physically destroyed over the next 6 weeks. Your next treatment in the same area can be performed in 4-6 weeks.
Where do Double Chins Come From?
When it comes to double chins, all clients are different, and the source of excess submental fat can come from a variety of factors. Fortunately, Kybella in Rochester can fix the appearance of a double chin—regardless of what it came from.
As we get older, our skin starts to sag and the elasticity begins to fade. This can result in a double chin forming that may not have been there earlier.
Poor Diet & Exercise
As with numerous other conditions, a double chin could be the result of poor diet and exercise habits. Fatty foods and lack of exercise can contribute to the development of unwanted fat cells under your chin.
It’s probably not what you want to hear, but if having a double chin runs in the family, there’s a good chance you might have one today. Anyone with a family history of double chins is more likely to develop one themselves.
Chemical fat dissolving didn’t start with Kybella. In fact, chemical fat dissolving, or mesotherapy, dates back to the 1950s. A decade later, researchers began using chemical compounds to break down fat in trauma patients, who after a fracture, would suffer from fat globs entering the bloodstream. Researchers then began to expand their focus to dissolving fat in other areas of the body.
Before chemical fat dissolving hit the beauty industry, bodybuilders were using it to slim up before a competition. They would inject the compound PC/DA, which included deoxycholic acid. Later, researchers found that deoxycholic acid was the compound that was responsible for this break down of fat. Fast forward to the 21st century, and now men and women can benefit from injectable deoxycholic to gain a slimmer and more defined chin and jawline when injected by certified medical professionals!
Benefits of Kybella in Rochester
Custom treatment plan
The procedure is performed at Envision Aesthetics in a series of two to four injections with no more than six injections, depending on the individual’s needs. Each injection is administered a month apart from each other for optimal results. Kybella creates a naturally contoured and sculpted profile for a more youthful appearance.
Unique for every person
Kybella injections in Rochester are designed to precisely accommodate each person’s specific wishes. The number of injections you receive will depend on the amount of excess fat you want to reduce and how your body processes the material. When Kybella is injected into the skin, it diminishes fat cells, creating a noticeably thinner facial profile.
Quick and non-invasive
Kybella is a noninvasive, non-surgical procedure that aims to reduce signs of submental fullness. This treatment uses an injectable that won’t require you to take off work. The non-invasive procedure lasts between 15-20 minutes. Kybella produces results that are quick and long-lasting.
Before your double chin treatment, our specialists will examine your chin to make sure that Kybella in Rochester is right for you. We’ll speak to you about your goals and what you hope to look like. Based on that, we will tailor your Kybella injections to best fit your desires. This includes how many treatments you should have along with how many injections per session you’ll receive.
We ask that our patients inform us of their medical history before coming in for their first Kybella treatment. Let us know if you have trouble swallowing, have had any kind of facial surgery, or have infections or other medical conditions in the injection area. We also would like to know about any other cosmetic procedures you’ve had on your face, neck, and/or chin.
You should schedule your procedure well before any major event. More than likely, you’ll experience some swelling after your treatment. Come to your appointment with a thorougly washed face to reduce the chance of infection. We also advise our patients to avoid taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen before the procedure because it can lead to unwanted bruising.
Kybella in Rochester is an outpatient procedure with no recovery time involved. Our patients at Envision Aesthetics usually notice swelling for only a few hours after the treatment. That’s normal and means the Kybella is doing its job. This swelling is due to the deoxycholic acid breaking down the submental fat cells in your chin. As our patients go through more procedures, they usually find that the amount of swelling decreases each time. There may also be some redness and slight bruising, both of which are temporary and shouldn’t be a cause of concern.
We highly recommend that you continue on with your remaining treatments. Most patients start seeing results after two treatments, but if you follow through with your full regimen, you’ll maximize your results. Each Kybella treatment you’ll have at Envision Aesthetics in Rochester will be spaced at least one month apart, and you can have up to six treatments.
At Envision Eye & Aesthetics, Kybella in Rochester will provide you with a more flattering profile. Your neck and chin area will be significantly reduced within 4-6 weeks with no downtime. Each treatment provides a more sculpted look.
