Everyone wants a well-defined chin. That’s one of the reasons why KYBELLA treatments at our Fort Worth, TX practice are increasingly popular. KYBELLA injections reduce the appearance of a double chin, which is caused by submental fat — the accumulation of fat just below the chin.
The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for this nonsurgical treatment is to meet personally with Dr. Camp. Request a consultation online, or call our practice at (817) 228-4315 to schedule an appointment.
Your KYBELLA Treatment
The appearance of a double chin is typically caused by one or more of these factors:
- Weight gain
Each KYBELLA treatment plan varies a bit. Dr. Camp will be able to tell you the number of injections and separate treatments needed during your consultation. Once you’re ready for treatment, Dr. Camp marks specific injection sites below the chin to ensure precision. A single treatment session typically takes 15 to 20 minutes to administer the injections.
KYBELLA is one of 2 nonsurgical treatments we offer to reduce the appearance of a double chin. CoolSculpting® can also minimize submental fat with the CoolMini™, an applicator specifically designed to fit under the chin.
Of course, surgical intervention can provide even more dramatic transformations. If you want to pursue this avenue, you may also want to ask Dr. Camp about using neck liposuction to remove fat.
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA uses a synthetic form of a chemical called deoxycholic acid, which the body naturally produces to help break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected beneath the chin, the deoxycholic acid goes to work breaking down fat cells in the area. This effectively renders them unable to store fat, which triggers the body to gradually remove the cells over time.
Each patient’s response to the injections is unique, but most patients begin seeing visible results after 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Up to 6 treatments may be needed, depending on your response and aesthetic goals. We schedule treatments at least a month apart.
What to Expect
Most patients experience some swelling after KYBELLA injections, but as the body becomes accustomed to treatment, swelling is often diminished following subsequent treatment sessions. You may also notice some bruising or numbness under the chin. There may be some areas of hardness or redness, as well. In the vast majority of cases, these are minor side effects that resolve on their own.
