Body Lounge Park Cities in the Park Cities neighborhood of Dallas offers KYBELLA® injections to reduce your double chin and contour your face.
It is a nonsurgical treatment that permanently reduces or eliminates your double chin without risky surgery. With a few injections and minimal downtime, you can see a significant reduction in the amount of fat beneath your chin.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected, KYBELLA® destroys the fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
How did I get a double chin?
While many people attribute double chins to obesity and being overweight, they aren’t the only causes. In fact, many people develop double chins because of a genetic predisposition or as a result of natural aging.
Unfortunately, fat under your chin is difficult to target with diet and exercise, and many people seek surgery to improve their profile. But with Kybella, you can improve your profile without surgery or downtime.
You’re not alone if you feel self-conscious about your double chin. When asked how they felt about their chin, more than half of men and women in a recent survery reported dissatisfaction.
What to Expect
You may need several sessions to get your ideal results. Unless you gain a lot of weight after your Kybella injections, your double chin is gone forever.
There are a few common side effects that you should be aware of before you commit to the treatment. You might experience:
What are the possible side effects?
KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness and trouble swallowing.
The most common side effects occur in the treatment area and include:
- Swelling * Bruising
- Redness * Numbness
- Pain * Areas of Hardness
Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own. Not likely but more serious side effects can include nerve injury in the jaw or trouble swallowing. Generally both injuries resolve on their own. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.
Other Areas of Treatment
“Bra Fat” or Armpit Area, Back Fat, Back of Arms, Top of Knees
Most patients require 2-3 treatments, spaced 6-12 weeks apart, so it can take some time to see a result. At Body Lounge we follow up the final treatment with a radiofrequency treatment with our Accent Prime for additional lift and tightening of the skin.
Patients should expect tenderness and swelling for 1-2 weeks and will see the fat disappear gradually in the weeks to follow with maximum results at about 6 months.
Consultations are required for all Kybella treatments. Call 972.803.4432 for your complimentary consults.
