Keep in mind that even in cases where Kybella does eliminate existing submental fat, the skin in the area may loosen and sag as a result. If loose or sagging skin remains, then you may want to follow up with an Ultherapy treatment.
For Older patient whose skin is a little loose , after Kybella treatment, their skin usually gets tighter, but in case there will be small residual area of loose skin under chin, Dr. Avaliani can offer a treatment combination with Ultherapy, the one and only non invasive FDA approved skin tightening device.
A month after the procedure, most people have definite reduction in fat tightening of the skin in the treated area. This continues to improve over the next 3-5 months. Swelling tends to be milder with each subsequent treatment.
In some cases, when the fat has gone from the area, the skin may be left looking a little loose. To remedy this, a treatment with the Plasma Pen will tighten the skin. In some cases, a final treatment of an injection with a skin tightening product may be used.
Remember That it Will Get Worse Before it Gets Better
Patience is key when it comes to Kybella treatments—because your body obviously isn't used to things being injected into your chin, there will be swelling and bruising, making your double chin more noticeable and larger for a small amount of time.
KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site or trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
"The Kybella kills the fat cells so the fat won't come back in the treated area, but it still can come back, and it may come back in a new area," Mitchell says. "If you normally gain weight in the chin, it could come back in the neck post-Kybella, which may look unnatural. This can also happen with liposuction."
Two of the main issues that affect the neck are skin laxity and a double chin, which can make patients look older and heavier than they actually are. Fortunately, Kybella and Ultherapy are two effective ways to fight neck aging without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.
After each treatment patients can expect some swelling, redness and skin irritation and tenderness in the area treated, which will subside after four to six days.
You may experience some pain, light bruising or swelling around the injection area for a few days after treatment. This treatment is not suitable for certain clients, such as pregnant or lactating women or those with certain health conditions like diabetes, liver or kidney disease, or skin issues.
Exercise. Exercise is one of the easiest things you can do to tighten the skin and lose the extra layer of fat around your neck and chin. Sometimes called facial yoga, these exercises help to firm up the area where you have the double chin.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, and spicy foods 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. These items may contribute to increased swelling or irritation.
#1: Yes, KYBELLA Really Works!
In 20 studies from around the globe, over 68.2% of people saw a noticeable reduction in fat compared to 20% of people who received a placebo. Also, over 79% of KYBELLA patients said they felt happier with how their faces looked after undergoing treatment.
Kybella® is a non-surgical solution for submental fullness, more commonly known as “double chin.” In addition to treating moderate to severe submental fullness, Kybella® can help to sculpt the jawline by destroying the fat cells that lead to jowls.
The term “jowls” is often used to describe sagging skin below your chin or jawline. Almost everyone develops jowls as they age. It happens because your skin becomes thinner and less elastic over time.
Fat dissolving injections can help you to achieve a slimmer, more contoured body shape, with long-lasting results of between two and four years. The results are even longer if you maintain a healthy diet and regularly exercise.
It produces long lasting results, which means you can banish those annoyingly wobbly bits. These injections can be used to treat small, exercise resistant, pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. It is very effective for body contouring, but is not a treatment for weight loss.
A turkey neck is somewhat unavoidable as we age, but the right treatment can redefine your neckline and rejuvenate your appearance. Neck lift surgery and KYBELLA® injections are two excellent options to consider for getting rid of a turkey neck.
Based on your individual aesthetic goals and a customized treatment plan, after just two to six Kybella treatments, you'll notice a visible reduction in that troublesome turkey neck. When fat cells under your chin are destroyed, your body can't use them for fat storage.
Skin Laxity: CoolSculpting has been proven to be effective in improving skin laxity. Kybella is not, and may make skin laxity worse. The Side Effects: The Most Significant Difference This is really what separates the two treatments.
Kybella will last forever!
Maximum results can be seen after six months and are long-lasting. Kybella completely destroys fat cells and they disappear permanently. So, once these fat cells are eliminated you will be able to enjoy your newly sculpted chin for many years.
It's important to space Kybella injections apart. Not only does this allow the active ingredient time to target submental fat in the chin, but it also gives your body time to heal in between treatments. If you have too many injections too close together, this could increase your risk of side effects, like swelling.
The dissolved fat is now cellular debris, and gets cleared into the lymphatic and circulatory systems by specialized immunologic cells. This happens gradually over the span of several weeks. As for the deoxycholic acid, it follows the same path; it gets metabolized and broken down, and then excreted as waste.
