Do you feel self-conscious about your double chin? Does it detract from your overall appearance? Well, you are not alone. A double chin is a common concern for many people, resulting from aging, genetics, and weight gain. A double chin can be difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. Fortunately, Smithtown Kybella can help you get rid of your double chin and help you achieve a more defined, youthful-looking chin and jawline.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment designed to target and dissolve the fat cells under your chin. It contains deoxycholic acid, a natural molecule found in the body that helps to break down and absorb fat. When Kybella is injected into the treatment area, it destroys the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. This results in a more defined, slimmer chin and jawline.
How does the treatment work?
Kybella treatments are performed in your dermatologist’s office and typically take about 15-20 minutes to complete. During the treatment, your dermatologist will mark the areas to be treated, clean the skin, and then inject Kybella into the fat pockets using a fine needle. The solution then dissolves the fat cells, leaving your skin smooth and contoured. There is no need for numbing or pain medication, as the injections are relatively painless.
Preparing for your Kybella
Before your Kybella treatment, it is important to have a consultation with your doctor to discuss your goals and expectations. Your doctor will examine your face and neck to determine the best course of treatment for you. They will also go over the treatment’s potential side effects and risks with you.
It is also important to avoid taking any anti-inflammatory medication before your treatment, as this can increase the risk of swelling and bruising. You should also avoid alcohol and excessive sun exposure for at least 24 hours before and after your treatment.
What to expect after your Kybella?
A Kybella treatment session typically lasts between 15 and 20 minutes, with no downtime required. After your Kybella treatment, you may experience some swelling and redness in the treatment area. This is normal and should wane off on its own within a few days. You may also experience some tenderness and bruising, but this should also go away within a few days.
You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours. You should also avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours after your treatment, as this can increase the risk of swelling and bruising.
