    Kybellain Boston

    The double chin eliminator you've been waiting for is here! At our Med Spa in Boston Kybella is an exciting new drug which offers a fast, nonsurgical option to help dissolve fat below the jawline to minimize the appearance of a double chin. As a cost-effective alternative to liposuction, Kybella can help you achieve similar results without surgery and with minimal downtime. Say goodbye to your double-chin and enjoy a more sculpted, youthful contour with as few as two treatments. Our team at Boston Medical Aesthetics is here to help you get rid of stubborn submental fat (double chin). Our Kybella treatments can help you confidently step in front of the camera, knowing you won’t have anything “extra” to hide.

    What Is a Kybella?

    If you’re self-conscious of your double-chin but have been hesitant to go under the knife, this is the treatment for you!

    Kybella is an FDA-approved fat contouring procedure that doesn’t require any surgery. Kybella contains a patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This naturally occurring molecule helps metabolize fat cells. When injected into the fat, Kybella destroys fat cells and helps eliminate a double chin.​ The fat cells will be destroyed and safely flushed out of your system over time. As long as you maintain a proper diet and exercise, the results should last for years!

    Benefits of Kybella

    We strive to provide you with the best Kybella Boston has to offer. We know one of the biggest benefits of Kybella is convenience. Because it is a minimally invasive treatment, you’ll enjoy your enhanced appearance without having to worry about sutures or taking time off of work. Kybella is more affordable than other options, and results can be long-lasting, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. You won’t have to worry about maintenance injections. You can have peace of mind that Kybella is a safe and effective treatment. It’s FDA approved, and you’ll see your desired results in as little as two treatments. A more defined jawline can make you look slimmer overall and give you a more youthful appearance.

    Am I a candidate?

    Kybella is approved for most healthy adults.

    During your consultation for Kybella Boston injectable specialists at our practice will review your health history and medical condition and help you determine if Kybella is safe for you.

    Patients who have trouble swallowing, have an active infection in the jaw or chin, are recovering from surgery in the treatment area, or have medical conditions that affect the jaw or chin may not be good candidates for Kybella.

    What should I expect during my Kybella procedure?

    After you arrive at our clean and relaxing treatment center, we will begin charting out your more defined jawline, evaluating the amount of fat tissue that needs to be addressed.

    The treatment is administered using a very fine needle, so you can expect minimal discomfort during the procedure. The number of shots will depend on the treatment plan you and your injector decide on during your consultation.

    When can I return to work?

    A full recovery from the treatment may take a month, but the good news is that you should be able to return to work and your daily routine immediately.

    Most of our Boston Kybella patients only experience swelling or some slight bruising. The main thing you may want to avoid is an exertional exercise for about three days. Most symptoms, such as mild pain and discomfort, can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses. Any amount of noticeable swelling should subside within a couple of days to weeks. Downtime seems to decrease with subsequent treatments.

    How is Kybella Administered?

    A Kybella treatment is typically a 15-20 minute in-office procedure.

    First, anatomical planning is made with boundaries drawn to mark the treatment area. Second, dose planning is done with respect to the amount of fullness which needs to be addressed. Typically 10-30 shots are given with a needle the same size as our very small Botox needles. The dosing and number of shots is customized for each of our Boston Kybella patients.

    What results can I expect?

    Results may not be instantaneous, but they are long-lasting. First, you need to allow any possible swelling to subside, but that should only take four to six weeks. That is why we usually recommend that amount of time in between treatments.

    Our patients are happy to report that they see a marked difference in reduced fullness under the chin by week 12. Most of our patients here at Boston Medical Aesthetics experience visible contouring of their chin within two to four treatments, but some may benefit from up to six treatments. Since a Kybella treatment eliminates the fat cells, ultimately flushing them out of your system, you shouldn’t have to worry about a return of the double chin provided you maintain a healthy diet.

    Kybella FAQs

    Kybella treatments should be done 6-8 weeks apart.

    The results you achieve from Kybella should be permanent in most cases because the patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells. With nowhere to store the fat, the appearance of your more defined chin remains.

    You may experience some discomfort, swelling, redness, numbness, and/or minimal bruising. But most side effects can be treated with OTC medication or cold compress. Significant improvement should be seen within the first couple of days. A full recovery is expected by eight weeks.

    Most patients treated with Kybella experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments. Some patients may require up to 6 treatments to achieve the desired results. Once your chin profile has improved, you may not need to be treated with Kybella again. Unlike most other cosmetic injectables, results from Kybella are very long-lasting.

    For most patients, downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first treatment session. Minimal bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area might get in the way of some social plans and work commitments for the week following the procedure. Downtime seems to be decreased with subsequent treatments.
