Kybella: Tighten Your Neckline Without Surgery
Gone are the days when cosmetic treatment for double chins (technically called ‘submental fat’) meant general anesthesia and liposuction. Now with Kybella, Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics can tighten up your neck and jawline with a few short, minimally invasive sessions. In just a few months, we can have you looking and feeling better without any interruption to your everyday life.
What is Kybella and how does it work?
Kybella is the brand name for deoxycholic acid, an all-natural substance made by the human body for the specific purpose of breaking down and absorbing fat cells. Approved by the FDA in a unanimous vote, Kybella has been demonstrated as highly effective for long-term tightening of the jawline. Effects have even been shown to last after subsequent weight gain!
Prior to the introduction of Kybella, the only treatment for submental fat was surgical liposuction. Now, Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics offers you the opportunity to destroy unwanted neck fat in just a few fast and easy sessions.
Minimal discomfort, easy administration and rapid results
We begin our Kybella treatments by numbing the area under your chin with a local anesthetic. While the numbing agent takes effect, we apply a template to the treatment area, which is essentially a temporary, press-on tattoo. This template serves two purposes: marking the injection sites and determining the amount of solution necessary to treat your neck size.
Once the preparation work is done, we typically make 15-30 quick, evenly spaced injections. Because of the local anesthetic, no pain is felt during the session and each session lasts only about 15 minutes, including the preparation time. Most people will see significant results in two to four sessions spaced about a month apart.
Side effects are nothing to fret over
The typical side effects of Kybella are quite mild. For the first two or three days after treatment, you can expect:
- Minor swelling
- Slight bruising (easily covered by make-up)
There is no need to take time off of work, and you’ll be able to continue your regular routine immediately after your treatment is over.
Kybella’s widespread appeal comes from significant results
Despite regular exercise and a healthy diet, the infamous double chin can be especially stubborn for many people to lose. Up until now, the only answer was surgery. But if you’re tired of seeing little to no results from your hard work, then you’re a perfect candidate for receiving Kybella treatments.
While cosmetic procedures are typically popular with women, men have taken a special interest in Kybella. Commonly cited reasons for this are discomfort when wearing a tie and a desire for a classically masculine “chiseled jaw.” However, that’s not to say this is a male-oriented procedure! Women are also lining up for their chance at a slim, photo-friendly neckline.
There’s no reason to miss out on a more youthful look. For more information on Kybella, or to schedule an appointment, call 888-716-2281. You can also schedule an appointment using our easy online form
