Kybella®

A double chin, medically known as submental fullness, can be an incredibly frustrating cosmetic concern because it's so often not related to weight. That means diet and exercise can only do so much to reduce its appearance. KYBELLA is an option for Spokane and Coeur d'Alene men and women who want to simply reduce the look of a double chin without the time requirement or commitment of surgery.

Candidates for KYBELLA

An unwanted double chin is a common concern that affects many people, so KYBELLA patients tend to be rather diverse. Most adult men and women who are bothered by submental fullness are usually eligible for treatment with KYBELLA. Typically, Dr. Johnson looks for the following traits when evaluating an individual's candidacy for the procedure:

  • Overall good physical health
  • Desire to reduce stubborn fat beneath the chin without surgery
  • Realistic goals and expectations for the procedure

Benefits

KYBELLA uses deoxycholic acid, a special ingredient found in the digestive system, to break down fat beneath the skin. In its natural form, deoxycholic acid dissolves fat in the food we eat, making it easy for the body to digest and process it. In cosmetic uses, KYBELLA can do the same to fat beneath the skin.

KYBELLA appeals to so many people because it treats a common aesthetic complaint without surgery or even at-home recuperation. Instead, KYBELLA is administered right here in our office, during a simple procedure that only takes about 30 minutes. After your visit, you're free to resume your normal daily activities while the active ingredient in KYBELLA goes to work dissolving targeted fat cells.

Procedure

After cleansing your skin and numbing the treatment area with a light local anesthetic, Dr. Johnson uses a special tool to help him "map" the area beneath your chin where he will make injections. Each injection lasts for only a second and feels like a light pinch.

Recovery & Results

There's no recuperation required after your treatment with KYBELLA. However, you should expect to experience some light, mild side effects that are limited to the injection site. These may include temporary redness, swelling, or tenderness.

KYBELLA typically requires a few treatment sessions to work completely. Dr. Johnson recommends between 2 and 4 appointments, spaced about 1 week apart. Unlike the results of injectable fillers, your KYBELLA results can last indefinitely, especially if you maintain a steady weight over time.
