Submental fullness — what most of us call a double chin — is an extraordinarily common concern that, until recently, didn’t have a targeted solution in aesthetic medicine. But FDA-approved KYBELLA changed the landscape completely, offering patients an exciting, minimally invasive approach to slimming the area beneath the chin. We offer KYBELLA in our Los Gatos, Palo Alto, Walnut Creek, metro Seattle, and 4 other locations throughout California and Washington. Learn more about why KYBELLA is one of our favorite treatments and what you’d experience receiving KYBELLA for yourself.
The SkinSpirit Approach
Our trained injectors use KYBELLA to reduce fat deposits beneath the chin. During your visit, your practitioner first cleanses the skin in this area. Then, using a grid tool, the area beneath your chin is marked, to serve as a guide during the injection process. This ensures complete, even product coverage. Your practitioner then makes the injections, a process which usually takes just a few minutes to complete. After your appointment, you can return to your normal activities immediately, although you should expect some localized redness, swelling, and tenderness for the remainder of the day.
How It Works
KYBELLA uses an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid to safely dissolve fat. This ingredient occurs naturally in the digestive tract. There, its main functionality is breaking down fat in the foods we eat, making them easier to digest and metabolize. When administered to the fat beneath your skin, it goes to work breaking it down into small enough particles to ensure it’s processed and eliminated by the body.
Most patients achieve optimal results after two to four treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart. Over time, the targeted fat gradually breaks down and shrinks, leaving behind an attractive, contoured profile. Typically, the results created by KYBELLA can last indefinitely.
With eight locations throughout northern California and metro Seattle, revealing your most beautiful skin is easier than ever. Learn more about what KYBELLA can do for you. Schedule your consultation online or call us at (855) 383-7546.
