It used to be that the only injectables around were either for your lips, around your mouth, or for your forehead. And although fillers and Botox are still some of the most popular injections amongst patients everywhere, there’s a new injectable in town: Kybella. Kybella is an FDA approved injection that is used to contour and improve the appearance of your profile while helping target the fat under the chin. Does Kybella sound like something you’re interested in? If so, we have created a brief article to help our patients feel more informed. Let’s debunk three common myths about Kybella.
Myth #1: It Doesn’t Work
If there’s one myth about Kybella that we are here to debunk it’s just how well it works. Although some people may claim Kybella doesn’t work, they clearly have never tried it. The absolute best thing about Kybella is just how well it works for patients each and every time.
Myth #2: It Doesn’t Last
Unlike injectables like fillers and Botox that need to be redone at least every year, if not every few months, the other unique benefit of Kybella is that it’s permanent. Because Kybella works by actually targeting and then destroying existing fat cells, unless you put on more weight, you won’t have to worry about getting it redone regularly. However, because excess fat under the chin is a natural part of the aging process you may have to get new Kybella injections every so often for upkeep, but not on a consistent basis.
Myth #3: It’s Only For People who are overweight
Let’s face it, no matter how skinny you are, your body can still store fat in unique and unexpected places like under your chin. As long as you are healthy and Dr. Gary J. Price gives you the go-ahead, it’s safe to say that Kybella is a good treatment for patients of most weights.
