What is Kybella?
Just a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area can create the appearance of a "double chin," which is typically an unwanted look for both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Our team of experienced medical injectors is happy to provide this revolutionary technique to reduce neck fat at Body+Beauty Lab. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical option for upper neck fat. Although its commercial use is for eliminating submental fat, Kybella could also be used at our Philadelphia, PA or Radnor, PA offices to eliminate smaller areas of fat throughout the body. The active component in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly to the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you will see a visible decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate so you can enjoy your new slender neck and defined look for years to come.
What are the benefits of KYBELLA?
There are many benefits of KYBELLA, including:
- A safe and effective way to reduce fat on and under the chin
- Permanent results
- Minimally invasive treatment options
- Quick treatments
- Little to no downtime
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Kybella?
Ideal candidates for Kybella injectable treatments are those who have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin and unwanted volume. This injection addresses resistant areas of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss techniques either due to genetics, aging, or several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the best option for your goals.
"Just had my first ever cosmetic “procedure” and I’m so happy I got with Erica! I was so nervous because I’m new to all of this and wasn’t entirely sure what I needed. She listened to all my concerns and thoroughly consulted with me and never once felt pushy, she gave me multiple options and plans, and she was very gentle when poking me for kybella! It was honestly an even better experience than I had hoped for. Makes me feel so relieved and excited to come back for my next session! 10/10 recommend Erica!"- B.T. / Google / Jan 08, 2022
"I got Kybella and Botox. Nurse Siddiqi was the injectionist and she was super friendly, professional and helpful. The results of both injections were great. The Botox was very natural and removed my forehead wrinkles almost completely. It even seemed to plump up the skin so that the deep creases I have were decreased. I had four vials of Kybella and my friends have all commented on how noticeable the results are. Ms. Siddiqi listened to my concerns about target areas and tailored the injections to decrease the fat in those areas. I’m very happy with the results. Also, Ms. Siddiqi is very gentle with the injections. I definitely recommend her services!"- V.B. / Yelp / May 19, 2021
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is performed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Your medical injector will apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, once the skin has been cleaned. The injection process typically lasts around 15 minutes and consists of a few small injections distributed into the upper neck area. While some clients may require a single treatment to get to their desired look, others could need additional treatments spaced three weeks apart at Body+Beauty Lab.
What can i Expect after Kybella?
Kybella injections don't require the use of general anesthesia so you will be allowed to leave our office when you are ready to return to your daily routine. You may notice short-term numbness, bruising, or swelling below your chin, although this shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Contact Body+Beauty Lab right away if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, including difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not regenerate, the cells left over can grow larger so you need to maintain a stable weight after your Kybella treatments to prevent new pockets of fat from developing. Your outcomes from this procedure will leave your neck with a sleeker and slimmer appearance.
How much does Kybella cost?
Kybella treatment costs will vary, depending on how many appointments you need. During your initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to match your goals. A member of our staff will also review the payments we accept at your first appointment. If you're interested in saving money on future treatments, we invite you to learn more about our VIP membership program, which entitles members to receive special deals and discounts on several of our popular services.
How does Kybella work?
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is designed to break down fat cells. Once the fat cells are eliminated, these cells cannot regenerate. This is why more injections shouldn't be needed as soon as you have met your goal.
Am I eligible for a Kybella treatment?
Before your consultation, you will answer a few questions to make sure you are a candidate for Kybella treatments. You need to be at least 18 years old, not breastfeeding or pregnant, and you should not have an active infection in or around your neck. Before the process begins, you are encouraged to be open about your medical history and health concerns so we can determine if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction from the treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
At your initial consultation, a personalized injection plan will be created to match your cosmetic goals. Usually, patients get between 2 – 4 Kybella injections to achieve their goals. Kybella appointments need to be scheduled around 30 days apart. You shouldn't receive any more than six injections.
