Can KYBELLA® Give Me a Sculpted Jawline?
Even with a healthy diet, consistent exercise, and normal weight overall, you may still be struggling with stubborn fat under the chin, which can often make people look heavier or older than they actually are. While surgical liposuction is certainly an option for removing double chin fat, many people are interested in a more convenient, more affordable solution that does not require the inconveniences of plastic surgery — like incisions, scarring, anesthesia, and time away from work. For these patients, KYBELLA injections are a popular and easy way to reduce stubborn neck fat and sculpt a slimmer, smoother, more youthful-looking profile. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of KYBELLA injections from medical aesthetics and wellness expert Dr. Christy Kirkendol Watson (aka Dr. Christy) of Body Bar MD in Terre Haute and Carmel, IN.
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA is a cosmetic injectable product that is FDA approved for reducing stubborn fat cells in the submental area, meaning beneath the chin or on the upper neck. KYBELLA is commonly used to help slim down a double chin and give the patient a slimmer, smoother jawline and profile overall.
What to expect during KYBELLA injections
To ensure your comfort during treatment, Dr. Christy may apply a topical anesthetic prior to starting your injections. Once you are adequately numb, Dr. Christy will perform a series of injections in your upper neck, strategically targeting stubborn fat cells under the chin. After treatment, some swelling and tenderness are normal, but these symptoms should resolve after a few days or weeks, after which time you’ll start to see your results taking shape.
How many KYBELLA treatments will I need?
While most patients enjoy a noticeable improvement in their double chin and jawline after a single treatment with KYBELLA injections, patients with a greater amount of fat or fat that is less responsive to treatment may require a series of 2 – 4 appointments to achieve their desired outcome.
Will KYBELLA help a turkey neck?
KYBELLA is designed specifically to treat stubborn fat around the jawline, chin, and neck area to create a smoother and more sculpted look. Patients whose primary complaint is loose neck skin — sometimes called a “turkey neck” — should understand that KYBELLA injections will not address skin laxity. If you are concerned about hanging neck skin, talk to Dr. Christy about the possibility of nonsurgical skin tightening.
Can I get KYBELLA at the same time as another injectable?
In most cases, the answer is yes. Based on your specific concerns, goals, treatment history, and other factors, it may be possible to receive your KYBELLA injections at the same time you are getting another type of injectable, like wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers. Some of our most popular injectable products for facial rejuvenation include:
If you are interested in combining your KYBELLA treatment with injectable wrinkle relaxers and/or dermal fillers for an even more complete and stunning transformation, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Christy which products may be most appropriate for you.
