Fade away fat cells under your chin with Kybella® injections at ZO Skin Centre® San Gabriel or Pasadena, CA. Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) is a fantastic Food & Drug Administration (FDA)-approved injection formulated to target stubborn "double chin" fat. Having lived with a double chin for years, many patients of all sizes (you do not have to be overweight to have submental fat) now enjoy their facial profile without surgery. This nonsurgical treatment is performed by our experienced, certified Kybella® injectors for men and women over the age of 18. Once injected, Kybella® shrinks the fat cells so that your body can naturally eliminate them. This treatment is performed in a series of 3 – 6 appointments, which is dependent on how your body reacts to Kybella®. Your double chin will gradually look thinner between your injection sessions. Call and schedule a private appointment at the ZO Skin Centre® to see if you qualify.
You may be considered to be a candidate for Kybella® injections if you meet these stipulations:
- You are 18 years of age or older
- You have great skin elasticity in your neck area
- You have loose skin on your neck or jaw line
- You are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- You have moderate-to-severe submental fat that will not go away regardless of diet and exercise
- You have infection-free skin on the chin and neck
- You are willing to try a nonsurgical treatment for your "double chin" instead of invasive surgery or surgery is not an option for you
- You have medical conditions that make it hard to swallow, blood clotting disorders, or allergies to any ingredient in the medication
Of course, we will go over a thorough list of medical questions, perform a physical examination of the treatment area, and go over the details of your personalized Kybella® treatment plan.
What to expect@headingTag>
During your treatment session, you will be in one of our minor procedure rooms to be prepared for your injections. Our medical team will gently ready your chin area; the area will be cleansed. If the pain is a concern, we can administer a numbing gel to your skin before the needle is inserted. We will apply a chin grid just like a temporary tattoo. This will allow your injector to give you precise injections on your skin. Using a fine needle, the Kybella® will be injected right under the skin at each dot of the grid. Once all of the dots have been injected, we will provide you with an ice pack to help with the swelling and slight burning sensation you may experience under your skin. If you feel the after burn, please know that is the deoxycholic acid working on your fat cells. This side effect should resolve itself within the day of treatment. You will have swelling and redness in the area, and you should use an ice pack to soothe until the sensations fade away. Most of our Kybella® patients need 3 – 5 treatment sessions spread out a month apart. This can be determined by the amount of submental fat treated with Kybella® or how fast your body reacts to the drug.
