Get rid of stubborn chin fat for good with Kybella®! This product is the only injectable that is FDA-approved to improve the appearance of submental fullness, or a double chin. Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England offer this treatment to the residents of Portland and the nearby communities of Maine.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that can be used to eliminate stubborn fat under the chin, often referred to as a double chin. The active ingredient of Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a chemical that naturally occurs within the body. This compound aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the chin, the deoxycholic acid works to break down the excess fat and expedite its removal from the body. As a result, patients can achieve significant improvements in their facial profile in as little as one treatment.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost of your Kybella® treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to your Kybella® treatment that will work best for you.
Some patients may need multiple treatment sessions. We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.
Am I A Good Candidate for Kybella®?
Kybella® can be a great treatment option for anyone who is looking to address stubborn fat under the chin without surgery. However, it is important to remember that Kybella® is only a treatment for stubborn fat, it cannot help with loose skin under the neck. During your consultation, we can help you determine if Kybella® is the best treatment option for you.
What is the Kybella® Treatment Like?
We often perform Kybella® injections with the aid of a local anesthetic to ensure minimal discomfort during the treatment process. This may include multiple injections into and around the area under the chin. A typical Kybella® treatment is performed in less than 30 minutes, which is why it and many other injectable treatments have become known as “lunch-time” cosmetic treatments.
Is There Any Downtime After Kybella® Injections?
After Kybella® injections, the downtime is minimal. Most patients can come in, get treated with Kybella®, and return to their normal activities the same day. However, it’s important to note that you may experience swelling or bruising in the treatment area due to the injections. These effects typically fade within a week or two of treatment.
When Will I See Results from My Kybella® Treatment?
Your Kybella® results will become visible in the weeks following your treatment. It takes time for the formula to begin breaking down fat cells in the neck, which is why it often takes a month or two for results to become noticeable. Typically, patients receive between two and four treatments, but patients with severe double chins may need to receive as many as six treatments.
However, because fat cells are destroyed with the Kybella® treatment, results can be permanent if a patient maintains healthy diet and exercise habits after their treatment.
