Since June of 2015, everybody has been talking of the new injectable to help eliminate the double chin. Dr. Colony in East Lansing, MI offers you this incredible treatment for submental fat without the need for surgical intervention.
Kybella – how does it work?
Kybella is a synthetic form of dioxychoic acid, which is a naturally occurring compound in our body that can aid in the destruction of fat cells. The FDA has approved the use of Kybella in patients over the age of 18 years, who wish to get rid of fat under their chin.
Dr. Colony customizes the treatment as per your needs, but usually you will need two to three treatments with 12 to about 20 injections per treatment. The treatment sessions are usually scheduled a month apart.
Side effects and results from your Kybella treatment
During the clinical trials, most patients could see results within three to four treatments. The results should last you for a few years.
The side effects of Kybella include swelling, mild pain, bruising, numbness and firmness around the injection site. These side effects resolve on their own within a day or two. It is important that you consult with an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon for optimal results and to avoid possible nerve irritation.
Kybella now offers patients an option to eliminate diet resistant fat under their chin without surgical treatment. If you are also concerned about that double chin, book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Colony today and learn more about Kybella and its many benefits.
