It can be frustrating to see stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise.

Fortunately, there is a solution that doesn’t require surgery or downtime, i.e., Kybella. If the fear of surgery was holding you back, LAK Med Spa’s Kybella treatment can help you achieve a more defined jawline.

Continue reading to explore how Kybella is a perfect treatment to get back your long lost contoured appearance!

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of submental fat, also known as a double chin. It was approved by the FDA in 2015 and has since become a popular treatment option to get rid of double chin.
Kybella works by using a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. This substance helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the submental area, Kybella targets and destroys the fat cells in that area. Over time, the body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells through its metabolic processes.

What is the Kybella Treatment Process?

Kybella treatment typically involves a series of injections administered by an expert surgeon at LAK Med Spa. The number of injections required will depend on the patient’s individual needs and the amount of submental fat present. During the treatment, a grid is first marked on the submental area to ensure precise placement of the injections.
The injection process itself involves a fine needle being inserted into the targeted area and injecting a small amount of Kybella into each marked point. Most patients require multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve the desired outcomes.

What Are the Side Effects of Kybella?

Kybella is a safe non-invasie treatment with no major risks or side effects associated with it. However, patients might suffer from some minor side effects that include:
• Swelling, bruising, or redness
• Numbness or tingling
• Hardness or firmness
• Pain or discomfort
• Difficulty swallowing
• Temporary nerve injury

Are Kybella Results Permanent?

The results of Kybella treatment are intended to be permanent. Kybella destroys the fat cells in the treated area, and once these fat cells are destroyed, they cannot come back. However, it’s important to note that maintaining the results of Kybella treatment requires maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Weight gain can cause remaining fat cells in the area to expand, which may affect the appearance of the chin and jawline.
