Double Chin Getting You Down? Check Out Kybella

Melt Away Your Double Chin

Kybella Guilford CT Self-conscious about your “submental fullness” more commonly referred to as double chin? There’s a shot for that. Before Kybella, the only way you get rid of your double chin was liposuction or other surgical options. So what is Kybella and how does it work? Let’s take a look.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved drug that is identical to something your body makes called deoxycholic acid, which helps to absorb fats. It is administered through a series of non-surgical injections. There are no incisions required and the downtime is usually minimal.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

You may be a good candidate if you’re 18 years old or older and have excessive fat under your chin.

How many treatments are needed to see results?

This varies from patient to patient. Many patients feel they only need two or three Kybella treatments to get the desired look they want. You and Dr. Price will discuss what bothers you about your neck and chin fullness to determine the best course of action. Each treatment session takes between 15 and 20 minutes at a time. Dr. Price selects several injection sites where Kybella is administered. This process is then repeated one to three months later.

Are there any side effects?

As with any treatment, there are possible side effects. Some of these side effects include:

  • Numbness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Residual pain
  • Areas of hardness in the treatment area

Most of these side effects are minor and go away on their own. As with any procedure, if you’re concerned about how you may be feeling after treatment, give your doctor a call. The overall recovery time from Kybella is one month.

How long do results last?

This changes depending on the patient because the number of sessions varies so much. Generally, patients report noticeable effects after 12 weeks or at least 2 sessions. After six months, the maximum results can be seen and are meant to be long-lasting if not permanent.

Those are some of the basics of Kybella. If you have more questions or would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Price, give us a call at (203) 453-6635.

3 Myths About Kybella

Kybella Guilford, CTIt 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.

Getting rid of the fat underneath your chin doesn’t have to be difficult. Are you ready to learn more about Kybella? Schedule your consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price at our Guilford office today and call (203) 453-6635.

3 Benefits of Getting Kybella

Double Chin Treatment Guilford, CTDouble chins can be caused by genetics, weight gain, and old age. If you have a double chin that is making your self-esteem plummet, then it may be time to consider getting a non-invasive procedure like Kybella done from our office.

Kybella is an injection that is made up of deoxycholic acid. Once it has been injected into the fat underneath the skin, Kybella works to break down and absorb the fat cells and prevent them from accumulating again— leaving you with only one chin.

If you still aren’t sure if Kybella is right for you, we’ve created an article listing three benefits of getting this non-invasive treatment done.

Benefit #1: A Slimmer Physique

If you have worked hard to have a slim figure, but you still have a double chin, Kybella can give you that added push to make you look slimmer all around. Plus, if you are a big selfie taker, you won’t have to worry about what angle you’re taking a picture at because all angles will look good!

Benefit #2: No Surgery

Although surgeries like facelifts and neck lifts can give patients great results, they do require a fairly extensive recovery time. With a non-invasive treatment like Kybella, you won’t have to worry about any recovery or downtime involved. In fact, because it takes less than 30 minutes on average, you can come into our office on your lunch break to get it done.

Benefit #3: Permanent Results

If a slimmer physique and no surgery aren’t enough of an incentive to make you want to get Kybella, then permanent results might be. Because Kybella works by destroying the fat cells under your chin, once they are eliminated, they won’t return.

Kybella Vs. Neck Lift: The Ultimate Face Off

Kybella™ vs Necklift New Haven & Guilford CTWhen it comes to aging there is one thing everyone can agree upon; the double chin thing has got to go. However, as one of the most common side-effects of aging, your body starts to store fat in the most obnoxious places like your chin and your stomach. Luckily, there are two great options that can help you get rid of that nasty, unwanted neck fat: Kybella or a neck lift. So, what are these two procedures and how to they vary? Read on to learn more.

What’s the Diff?

The first thing to know about Kybella and a neck lift is that their main goal is to get rid of loose skin and fat around the neckline— leaving you without that dreaded turkey wattle. However, the next thing to be aware of is the unique differences— the most obvious difference being that Kybella is an injection and neck lift is a surgical procedure.

Kybella

Kybella is a non-invasive injection that is used to target the stubborn fat under your skin. Comprised of an all-natural substance called deoxycholic acid, Kybella will work to destroy the fat under your skin after about a total of six weeks. However, the results from Kybella will easily last you several years.

Neck Lift

During a neck lift, excess fat from under the chin will be suctioned out with liposuction. Additionally, the muscles and skin will be tightened to give you a more taut looking physique that will make you no longer reminisce about life in your twenties. Although a neck lift is a fairly invasive surgery, because it involves tightening the muscles and skin, patients see longer lasting results than with Kybella.

Depending on how severe the fat is under your chin, the results you want, and the time you have for the procedure, will help you and Dr. Gary J. Price land on the right decision for you. To learn more about these options or to schedule a consultation, contact Dr. Gary J. Price today at (203) 453-6635!

Double Up On Your Results, Not On Your Chin: Kybella

Kybella | new haven ctYou may like double the fun, double stuffed Oreos, double trouble, or even doubled vacation time off of work, but the last thing you want double of is your chin. If you have started to develop a double chin as you age, Dr. Gary J. Price has a few options— one in particular— that can help contour your profile and give you a smoother looking physique: Kybella. Read on to learn more.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical, FDA approved treatment designed with one goal in mind: to help you get rid of your double chin. Lasting only about 15-20 minutes, your Kybella procedure will be so fast that you won’t have to take any time off of work. By injecting a solution filled with deoxycholic acid into the area beneath your chin, Kybella works to dissolve the fat cells in this area and leave you with a more pronounced profile. Once these fat cells are dissolved, you won’t have to worry about them reproducing again.

What Is Recovery Like?

There is no downtime involved with Kybella, but patients who do receive this treatment can expect some redness, inflammation, and bruising under and around their chin. However, after just a few days, these symptoms should subside.

What Are Results Like?

Depending on how severe the area being targeted under your chin is, you will likely have to undergo several sessions. For instance, the average patient has to get about six treatments to dissolve the fat under their chin and give them optimal results. However, during your initial consultation with Dr. Price, he will tell you about how many treatment sessions he feels are necessary. Once the fat under your chin is dissolved, the cells won’t re-emerge on their own which means that as long as you maintain a healthy diet and get frequent exercise, your results should last.

With Kybella, you can get rid of your double chin in virtually no time. If you would like to learn more about this treatment or if you would like to schedule a consultation appointment, contact Dr. Gary J. Price today!
