As part of the natural aging process, many men and women experience a loss of volume in the lower face, resulting in the appearance of a double chin. For individuals who are looking to improve the contours of their chins without surgery, we now offer Kybella™ injections at Rejuvenate Center for Medical Aesthetics.
KYBELLA® is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. The safe and effective use of KYBELLA® has not been established outside the submental area and is not recommended.
What is Kybella?
In the clinical studies, the reference name was ATX-101, so your research may show that term popping up. What is Kybella? It’s a patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps metabolize dietary fat.
What Will I Experience While Recovering From Kybella® injections?
As with most dermal injections, you can expect some minor swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and discomfort in the chin area where you received the injections. The area may also feel a bit hard to the touch for a short period of time. These effects usually resolve within 2-3 days but can extend for up to a month.
