As the leaves change and the temperatures drop, fall is the perfect time to start thinking about refreshing your look. And what better way to do that than with a treatment that can help you say goodbye to that pesky double chin? Kybella is a non-surgical facial treatment that uses injections to shape your jawline and eliminate the appearance of a double chin.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella works by targeting and eliminating excess fat cells that accumulate under your chin, also known as submental fat cells. These fat cells can be stubborn and resistant to diet and exercise, making it difficult to achieve a sculpted jawline. The key ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that helps with the absorption of fat. Medical terms aside, once Kybella is safely injected, it destroys your fat cells!
How Does it Work?
Urban Medsdpa Charlotte has got you covered. Once you have been numbed with a topical numbing cream, Kybella is administered through a series of injections directly into the desired area. Each session typically takes less than fifteen minutes, making it a great treatment option for those with busy schedules. Some mild discomfort can be experienced during the injections, but our experts don’t miss a beat when it comes to your skin and your comfort.

Benefits, Results, & Concerns:
Kybella is a non-surgical procedure that requires no anesthesia or downtime, allowing patients to resume daily activities immediately. However, swelling and bruising may occur as side effects, which usually subside within a few days or weeks. Results are gradual, with the body naturally eliminating targeted fat cells over several weeks. Patients typically require multiple sessions to achieve desired results, with each session spaced four to six weeks apart. Kybella should only be performed by a licensed and experienced healthcare professional, and it is crucial to communicate expectations and concerns with the provider to ensure the right treatment is chosen.
