Kybella Beverly Hills

In the past, the only way to get rid of a double chin was with liposuction or a neck lift. And while these procedures are very effective ways to contour your jaw, their invasive nature means they aren’t right for everyone. Fortunately, today there’s a new way. Kybella treatments in Beverly Hills at The Roxbury Institute are revolutionary and make it possible to slenderize your jaw and reduce your double chin – all without surgery.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable designed to improve the appearance of your double chin. Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule that breaks down fat. When this medicine is injected into the area underneath your chin, it destroys the unwanted fat cells. Your body then removes the targeted cells through its natural elimination process, allowing your contoured new facial appearance to emerge over time.

Benefits of Kybella

Kybella is a breakthrough treatment that has helped many of our patients with double chin reduction in Los Angeles. In addition to being extremely effective, the procedure comes with a number of appealing benefits, including:

  • FDA-approved
  • Results in as little as a few weeks
  • Completely non-invasive procedure
  • No incisions, downtime or recovery period

What to expect during your Kybella treatments

Your Kybella procedure in Los Angeles will take place in one of our relaxing treatment rooms. To begin, we will administer a topical anesthetic to prevent any discomfort and ensure that your experience is as pleasant as possible.

From there, we will place a grid over the treatment area, which will guide the injection process. Using a tiny needle, we will then inject the medication directly into the excess volume beneath your chin, where it will work to destroy your unwanted fat cells.

A completely non-invasive treatment, you’ll be free to resume your normal daily routine immediately after your double chin reduction in Beverly Hills. However, you may experience some mild swelling and bruising at the injection site. If you feel any pain, simply take an over-the-counter pain reliever to manage the discomfort. Over time, your body will clear away the fat cells that were targeted by Kybella, and your more contoured jawline will emerge.

Are there any risks associated with Kybella?

Clinical trials have shown that Kybella is a very safe treatment. With that said, in rare cases complications can arise. For example, there’s a very small chance that Kybella injections can damage the tissue or nerves in the treatment area, weakening the facial muscles and causing an asymmetrical appearance. However, this risk is very unlikely when your injections are performed by a trained and experienced professional, like the individuals on our team at The Roxbury Institute.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella?

An extremely safe treatment, almost anyone over the age of 18 who suffers from a double chin can benefit from Kybella in Los Angeles at The Roxbury Institute. With that said, if you’re pregnant or nursing, have an active infection, are taking blood thinners or have experienced difficulty swallowing, you won’t be considered a candidate for this procedure.

Kybella FAQ

How many Kybella sessions are typically recommended for optimal results?

Typically, optimal results with Kybella are achieved through a series of two to four treatment sessions, spaced at least one month apart.

Can Kybella be used in areas other than the submental region?

Kybella is FDA-approved for treating submental fat, but its use in other areas is not recommended or supported by clinical studies. It's specifically designed for reducing fat beneath the chin.

Can Kybella be used on all skin types?

Kybella is generally suitable for various skin types, but individual factors may influence its effectiveness. Consultation with a healthcare provider is recommended to determine the appropriateness of Kybella for specific skin types and conditions.

How does Kybella compare to traditional surgical options like a neck lift?

Kybella is a non-surgical option that targets submental fat through injections, whereas a neck lift is a surgical procedure involving the removal of excess skin and fat. Kybella may be preferred for those seeking a less invasive approach, while a neck lift provides more comprehensive changes to the neck's appearance.
