You hate your double chin, but don’t want to undergo liposuction or any other surgical procedure. Dr. Amanda Nunley and the aesthetic professionals at Art of Rejuvenation Medicine medical spa in New Braunfels, Texas, can remove your double chin permanently with a series of Kybella® injections that melt away fat and tighten the skin. Men and women in the New Braunfels area of Texas who want to banish their double chins for good with nonsurgical Kybella should call today for a consultation or use the online booking form.
FDA-approved Kybella is the only injectable therapy that permanently removes your double chin by destroying fat cells and melting them away. It’s a therapy made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that’s found naturally in the human body to help break down fat.
Your Art of Rejuvenation Medicine professional administers Kybella in a series of injections that are guided by a template that they place underneath your chin. Your Kybella session takes about 20 minutes to complete.
The deoxycholic acid in Kybella melts your excess fat cells upon injection. Your body then breaks down destroyed cells and gradually eliminates them through the urine.
Once the dead cells have been destroyed and eliminated, they can never return. However, you must maintain a stable weight to keep the excellent results you get with Kybella. Even though you have fewer fat cells under your chin, if you gain weight, the remaining fat cells may swell.
Kybella eliminates about 20% of fat in each session. Most men and women need at least two to four treatments with Kybella to get their goal profile. Depending on how much fat you want to lose, you may need as many as six treatments.
You must leave about one month between each treatment to allow your skin to heal and to let your body eliminate some of the dead fat cells. You should see your final results about two to three months after your last treatment. As long as you maintain your weight, your results are permanent.
After your fat is removed, you may have some loose skin. However, as you heal from the Kybella, your skin tightens. At your consultation, Dr. Amanda Nunley evaluates your skin quality to be sure you are a good candidate for Kybella.
Most side effects of Kybella are mild, such as swelling and soreness. You may have slight bruising, redness, numbness, or hardness. These should resolve within a few days.
If you’d like to get rid of your double chin once and for all, contact Dr. Nunley at The Art of Rejuvenation Medicine medical spa by phone or online form. Kybella can be combined with other rejuvenating injectable therapies, such as Botox and Juvederm, to create a liquid facelift.
