Double Chin Minus One
One of the most stubborn areas of fat is the double chin. No matter how much dieting and exercise, the excess fat seems to just hang in there, taking away from the definition of your chin and jawline. Kybella is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that can reduce fat in the jowls, under the chin, and other problem regions without surgery. At Face Forward Houston, Kybella treatments are one more way that we help you put your best face forward.
For a slimmer, younger-looking face
Kybella is a treatment for submental fullness (the double chin area) that is given as injections. This injectable medicine is made of deoxycholic acid, which is an enzyme that is naturally found in the digestive tract. This enzyme is used to break down and dissolve fat cells. This permanently reduces the number of fat cells in the affected area. Studies have shown that after several treatment sessions (usually somewhere between two and six treatments), the results are long-lasting and very effective.
The experienced aesthetic specialists at Face Forward Houston listen to your needs and deliver your Kybella injections with precision to keep you as comfortable as possible during your treatment. Ensure you get the beautiful, natural-looking results you desire by getting your Kybella treatment at Face Forward.
Your face without the extra
Kybella may be a possibility for you if you're bothered by a fuller submental area (the area under your chin) — especially if this fullness persists despite a good diet, activity, and steady weight. However, there is no "typical" patient. Submental liposuction, Renuvion skin tightening, and neck lifting procedures are all viable alternatives to Kybella for many patients who would otherwise be good candidates for this injectable. Your aesthetic professional at Face Forward can assess your condition and help you develop a treatment strategy designed to address your unique needs.
Feel better, look your best
Permanently reducing submental fullness, sculpting the jawline, and eliminating persistent bra roll fat without invasive liposuction is now possible with the help of Kybella. Make an appointment for a consultation and session in Houston to see how this cutting-edge injectable may help you look and feel your best.
Tighten and Improve
In order to get rid of a double chin, Kybella is injected straight into the submental fat with a very fine needle. In most cases, the treatments are administered in our office. The injections take only a few short minutes to complete, with the aid of a very tiny dose of numbing medicine included in the syringe for the patient's comfort. The majority of patients should receive at least two treatments as part of a therapy course.
Eliminate fat cells
Most people will feel minor swelling in the hours and days after receiving Kybella injections.
However, the fat will begin to break down gradually after that, and you should see the full effects of your treatment sometime between four and six weeks following the injection. This is why it is recommended that if you decide to get a series of Kybella injections, you spread them out by at least four to six weeks and wait at least that long to see the full effects.
Following each treatment, patients should anticipate a few days of swelling, redness, and maybe some pain and bruising. Numbness and tingling in the affected area are also possible, though these often subside on their own. If modest swelling of the submental region is tolerable, most patients can return to work after a day or two.
Most of the time, pain and swelling happens where Kybella is injected. There are also often other reactions at the injection site, such as bruising. Other possible side effects include trouble swallowing and damage to nerves, but these are extremely rare.
Average Cost per treatment (2 vials): $1,250
Range: $800 - $6,000 depending on the size of area and number of treatments needed
The number of vials used, the number of treatments needed, the expertise of the specialist administering the injection, and other variables all affect the final cost.
