Kybella Fat Injections for Chin / Neck Fat
Kybella chin / neck fat injections are now available in Las Vegas
by Kybella trained board certified Dermatologist, Robert Strimling, MD.
Kybella (deoxycholic acid, formally known as ATX-101) is an FDA approved
non-surgical injectable treatment solution for reducing moderate to severe
upper neck / under chin (submental) fat, otherwise know as a “dobule chin”.
(Kybella submental fat injections were FDA approved in April, 2015.)
Submental fullness (i.e. “double chin”) is a common yet undertreated
aesthetic facial condition that can impact a broad range of adults,
including both women and men.
Causes include aging, genetics and weight gain.
Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not
go away, and can make you look older and heavier than you are.
if you are bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone.
According to a 2015 survey, 67% of people are bothered by submental fullness.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-human, non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid,
a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that aids in the breakdown
and absorption of dietary fat.
How does Kybella Work?
When injected into fatty tissues, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells.
Because Kybella preferentially targets fat cells, surrounding non-fatty tissues
are largely unaffected. Kybella results are permanent.
Kybella does not affect loose, sagging skin or underlying muscle bands
that may also be contributing the aging neck.
However, adjunct Ultherapy neck lifting or Exilis RF skin tightening
can improve these contributing, unwanted signs of aging.
How is Kybella Administered?
Kybella is administered via a series of injections into the under chin fat
at each 15 to 20 minute treatment session.
Usually two (2), but possibly, one to four vials of Kybella per treatment session
times two (2) to four (4) monthly to bimonthly treatment sessions
is recommended for successful, satisfactory results.
~80% of patients treated with Kybella reported satisfaction with their results.
For most patients, downtime is minimal and worst after the first treatment.
Side effects include, but are not limited to:
injection site swelling (edema / induration), bruising (hematoma), pain, numbness and redness (erythema).
Any side effects are temporary, usually lasting up to a few days,
but occasionally up to a week or more.
Kybella is contraindicated in the presence of infection at injection site.
Other contraindications include pregnancy and nursing.
To minimize bruising, avoid aspirin and aspirin containing products
for at least one week prior Kybella injections.
Also, avoid ibuprofen and related medications for 3 days prior Kybella injections.
Avoid other blood thinners per your prescribing physician’s recommendation.
Otherwise, no special pre-injection preparation is necessary.
Ice / cold packs and ibuprofen may be used after injections as needed.
