Diet and exercise alone often fall short when it comes to the submental fat found beneath the chin and neck area. Often referred to as a double chin, this area is known to cause frustration among many individuals. With Kybella, patients are able to safely treat this area, effectively diminishing the appearance of a double chin without needing to go under the knife.
At Wellness Med Art, located in both NYC and Forest Hills, NY we are proud to offer our patients Kybella. The results of this non-surgical procedure reveal a sleek and slim profile, effectively restoring a youthful appearance.
What is Kybella™?
Kybella™ is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
Kybella is composed of a man made form of Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance found within the human body which aids in absorbing body fat. In this sense, Kybella mimics the body’s natural fat-absorption process, safely destroying the fat cells which contribute to double chins.
Who should not receive Kybella™?
You should not receive Kybella™ if you have an infection in the treatment area. Before receiving Kybella™, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you: Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if Kybella™ will harm your unborn baby); are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if Kybella™ passes into your breast milk; talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby if you receive Kybella™). Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your healthcare provider if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).
What are the possible side effects of Kybella™?
FDA approved, Kybella is considered safe for the treatment of submental fat, as the surrounding nerves and muscles are not affected. However, common side effects may occur post-treatment at the injection site. These side effects are generally mild in nature and should diminish naturally within a few weeks. Such common side effects may include:
- Areas of hardness in the treated area
Upon your consultation, our providers will review your medical background and determine if Kybella is right for you.
