Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment that can eliminate fat to reduce the appearance of a double chin. At 7 Seas Medical Spa, we offer this treatment to residents of Columbia, North Augusta, Evans, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment that is FDA-approved for the treatment of a double chin, also referred to as submental fullness. When fat develops under the chin, it can be difficult to eliminate, even with strict diet and exercise. The Kybella® formula is largely composed of deoxycholic acid, a substance that helps the body break down and absorb fat. When injected into the chin, the Kybella® formula destroys fat cells in the area, resulting in a slimmer, more contoured jawline and facial profile.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost of your Kybella® treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is the Kybella® Treatment Like?
The Kybella® treatment is administered via injection into and around the area under the chin. This is a tolerable process, but we offer a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. After the injections are performed, your treatment is complete. A single Kybella® session takes less than 30 minutes, which is why it and other injectable treatments have earned the title of “lunchtime” treatments.
What Can I Expect After My Kybella® Treatment?
After your Kybella® treatment, you may notice some swelling, redness, or sensitivity in the treatment area. These effects are common, and usually fade within about a week. The Kybella® formula will gradually take effect in the body, with results becoming visible within about a month. The full results will be visible about three months after treatment, although we typically recommend a series of Kybella® treatments to obtain optimal results. There is no downtime after Kybella®, although some patients choose to take a few days off of work and other activities to allow any swelling to subside.
How Long Do the Results from Kybella® Last?
Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells under the chin, so you can enjoy long-lasting and even permanent results from treatment. However, future weight gain can impact the results from your Kybella® treatment. For this reason, we encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to make their results last as long as possible.
