Does stubborn fat under your chin keep you from looking your best? Submental fullness, or more commonly known as a double chin, can hamper your self esteem and distract from your natural beauty. Dr. Day and her team are proud to offer Kybella, a new FDA approved injectable treatment that significantly improves chin contouring without the invasiveness or downtime of surgery.
Kybella works simply by destroying fat cells. The injection consists of a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. You will have a permanently more contoured and defined jawline.
If you are recommended Kybella by Dr. Day and her team, you can expect to be with us in the office for approximately one hour. Topical numbing will be used prior to the treatment to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. After the injections, you may bruise and swell. However, most of these bruises are easily covered with makeup and last only a few days. Though the fat dissolves within 10-15 minutes, you may experience significant swelling that can mask the initial effects. The swelling should subside in 1-2 weeks and you should see your final results within 4-6 weeks.
