Everyone yearns to flaunt a youthful look. While other individuals might prefer a surgical treatment to eliminate stubborn fat in targeted areas, other patients cannot stand the sight of a scalpel. If a non-surgical process is ideal for you, Smithtown Kybella injectable treatment is an option you should discuss with your healthcare provider. Since the treatment is ideal for submental fat under your chin, your doctor may also combine the treatment with another option like Thermage FLX to give your neck youthful contours.
How does the injectable treatment work?
Deoxycholic acid naturally occurs in your bile, helping you digest fat. Therefore, Kebella is a synthetic version of your system’s deoxycholic acid. Like the natural acid, Kybella works by destroying the walls of fat cells, preventing them from containing fat. Once the medical professional injects Kybella in your treatment area, the acid diminishes your chin fat, giving you a sharp and camera-perfect chin.
Before the process, your doctor will administer anesthesia or numb the injection site with an ice pack to minimize discomfort. The healthcare provider will then mark the areas before administering the injections under your chin. The deoxycholic acid then gradually disintegrates the fat cells that your body metabolizes after a few weeks.
Since everyone is different, your doctor will design a plan, depending on your unique aesthetic needs. While some people might only need one treatment, others need up to six treatments to achieve the desired results.
How is Kybella different from CoolSculpting and Liposuction?
Kybella, CoolSculpting, and liposuction are ideal options when you want to eliminate targeted fat in areas like your neck or chin. Though the three procedures help you remove fat, they have different modalities. While Kybella breaks down fatty tissues for easy absorption and release from your system, Coolsculpting works by freezing the fat, forcing the cells to crystallize and burst before your body can absorb and finally eliminate them.
On the other hand, liposuction is a more invasive treatment that requires various techniques including an ultrasound, to break and loosen fat cells in significant areas before the medical expert can finally suction the fat. While Kybella addresses a smaller area, liposuction and CoolSculpting address significant areas.
What are the advantages of Kybella?
- Unlike invasive treatments like liposuction, Kybella is a simple and effective fat removal treatment that is less invasive.
- The procedure is quick. Your healthcare provider might take approximately 20-30minutes depending on your treatment area.
- The pain you are likely to feel during the cosmetic process is minimal. However, you are likely to feel a slight stinging or burning sensation, especially at the injection site. Fortunately, the discomfort might disappear shortly after the treatment.
Who is suitable for Kybella treatment?
Your doctor will most likely recommend the procedure if the submental fat under your neck bothers you. However, you should have a smaller fat percentage and average skin laxity for the treatment to be effective. In case of significant fat in the treatment area, the medical professional might first try other treatments like CoolSculpting to minimize bulk fat under your chin. Your doctor may then call you back for Kybella treatment a few weeks later to work on the remaining fat.
Kybella is your ideal procedure if you wish to minimize submental fat without a surgical procedure. Contact your doctor for more information on Kybella injections.
