Many people suffer from a “double chin” despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Because fat cells can be resistant to diet and exercise, healthy living may not reduce fat under the chin. Kybella® is an injection that can minimize excess chin fat and tighten skin, effectively slimming a double chin. This non-surgical treatment option is FDA-approved, and can treat the following:
- Neck fullness
- Double chin
The active ingredient in Kybella is called deoxycholic acid, which is a substance naturally-occurring in the body. Its job is to break down fat cells for permanent fat reduction. At Arkansas Vein Clinic and Skin Care, our medical and aesthetic expertise, combined with the fat-reducing power of Kybella, can help patients finally get rid of a double chin.
Frequently Asked Questions About Kybella Chin Fat Removal in Fort Smith, AR at Arkansas Vein Clinic and Skin Care
Can I use Kybella to reduce fat in other areas of my body?
Designed to work in small areas, Kybella would lose efficacy if used in larger areas, such as the thighs or abdomen. Kybella is FDA-approved for use under the chin, and that is where it is most effective.
How long is the downtime with Kybella in Fort Smith?
There is no downtime with Kybella, but there is significant swelling after the treatment for up to two weeks, which varies between patients. Swelling can be improved by using ice packs following the treatment for two to three days. Bruising can also occur. An infinity scarf or other type of scarf/turtleneck are very helpful in keeping the swelling from being visible.
Are there side effects from Kybella chin fat removal treatment?
Yes, mainly swelling, mild bruising, and some mild discomfort. Depending on the amount of fat treated in each individual patient, swelling can vary.
How many Kybella treatments will I need?
Most patients require between two and four treatments to obtain desired results, but may need up to six treatments.
