Timeless Skin Solutions is pleased to offer KYBELLA™, the first and only injectable approved by the FDA specifically to non-surgically eliminate submental fat.
Submental fullness, otherwise known as a double chin, can be caused by various reasons such as aging, weight gain, or simply genetics. Even people who are very thin can have difficulty getting rid of fat under the chin. Until now, the only way to treat a double chin was surgery.
Patients choose KYBELLA™ to treat their double-chin over surgery because it’s:
During the treatment, a Timeless medical provider will numb the area with lidocaine. Next a kind of temporary tattoo with tiny dots space one centimeter apart will be applied to the chin area. Following, small amounts of KYBELLA™ will be injected next to the dots. KYBELLA™, is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This acid occurs naturally in the body and is produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder to help metabolize the fat we eat. Once injected, KYBELLA™ starts destroying the fat cells in the chin area, permanently. Patients can expect to receive up to 20 injections in 1 treatment.
For most patients, the procedure causes no more than minimal discomfort. Patients can expect swelling, redness and/or bruising following the treatment. The fat cells which are destroyed by the KYBELLA™ are flushed away through the body’s own natural circulatory and lymphatic systems. While the results are permanent, they are not immediate. Results take 4 to 6 weeks to show. Patients can expect to need between 2 to 4 treatments.
To reduce the potential of swelling you should ice the treated area. Do not manipulate the treated area. See complete treatment instructions.
