Kybella Conveniently located to serve Albuquerque and Santa Fe

KYBELLA™ is an FDA-approved non-surgical in-office treatment designed to destroy fat cells beneath your chin. A double chin may not go away no matter how much you diet or exercise, making you look older and heavier than you actually are. Numerous patients have eliminated their double chin with the help of KYBELLA™ in Albuquerque.

Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet under treated facial aesthetic condition that affects both men and women. It can make you look older than your age or overweight even if you are otherwise physically fit. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68 percent of people said they are bothered by their double chin.

The KYBELLA™ treatment is typically given in a series of injections, and once the desired aesthetic outcome is achieved, re-treatment is not typical.

How does KYBELLA™ work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. What this means is that, with KYBELLA™, you will not need to come in for repeat treatments after your goals have been met.

How will I know if KYBELLA™ is right for me?

During a KYBELLA™ consultation, your injector will determine whether the treatment is right for you. Your chin will be examined, as will the area around it. This will give your injector an understanding of how much fat needs to be removed with your KYBELLA™ double-chin removal treatment. You will also be asked to share your aesthetic objectives.

KYBELLA™ is generally quite safe, unless you are prone to infections in your chin area, bleed easily, have trouble swallowing, or have a medical condition related to your chin.

You are not advised to get this injectable treatment if you have already had or plan to have cosmetic surgery in the chin area. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are also not ideal KYBELLA™ candidates.

What preparation is required for KYBELLA™?

KYBELLA™ needs little advance preparation due to its non-surgical nature. If you normally take any blood-thinning medication, you will be advised to not take it before your injectable treatment in order to minimize post-treatment bruising and bleeding.

Washing your face thoroughly before receiving your KYBELLA™ treatment will reduce any infection risk that you might potentially incur.

What can I expect during my KYBELLA™ appointment and how many treatments will I need?

You and Diane Sanchez, LPN injector will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. She will give you a series of injections at each treatment session, which are spaced a month or more apart. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to 6 treatments may be administered.

Will I experience any side effects with KYBELLA?

The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area.

Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.

Sometimes serious side effects can occur, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies).

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA™ is not expected.
