A Treatment for Submental Fullness

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a prescription injection used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a natural bile salt used to break down fat and destroys the fat cells when injected into the “double chin”. After treatment with Kybella, the fat cells are permanently destroyed. Learn more about Kybella.

How many treatments will I need?

It depends. Most patients need 2-4 treatments spaced at least 1 month apart. Larger “double chins” will need more treatments, while smaller “double chins” will need less treatment. Per manufacturer’s recommendation, up to 6 treatments of Kybella may be performed.

Is Kybella permanent?

Yes! Because Kybella destroys the fat cells in the submental area. Kybella treatments have long lasting and permanent results!

Also referred to as “Double Chin” or “Neck Fat”. It is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can:

  • Detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance
  • Lead to an older and heavier look
  • Impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men
  • Be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain

Who is a good candidate for treatment?

Coastal Aesthetic Center offers a free consultation for Kybella treatment for anyone concerned about submental fullness, or “double chin.” A consultation with an examination of the “double chin” fat pad by one of our providers is the only way to evaluate if you are a candidate for the Kybella procedure.

Downtime or side effects?

The most common side effects include pain, swelling, and bruising. You can expect 7-10 days of swelling with the best results noted at 6-8 weeks post-injection. Pain from the Kybella injections is transient and subsides dramatically after 15 minutes. Most patients report a pain scale of 2-4 out of 10 with Kybella injections.

How much does Kybella cost?

Cost varies by how many treatments will be needed, most patients will need 2-3 vials of Kybella and about 2-4 treatments. For pricing please contact our office and schedule your FREE consultation so that we can properly examine you and make and appropriate recommendation to accomplish treatment goals.


The Best Kybella Facial Rejuvenation Treatment In San Diego

Previously, there was no method to cure submental fullness without surgery. A person with a double chin either lived with the aggravating effects of extra fatty tissue in the top portion of the neck or underwent liposuction surgery to remove stubborn fat cells. Fortunately, we now have more alternatives. Coastal Medical Center offers the best Kybella San Diego Facial Rejuvenation Treatment In San Diego.

Kybella – FDA Approved Facial Rejuvenation Treatment:

  • Reduces fat under the chin
  • Reveals a slimmer & trimmer profile
  • Provides long-lasting results
  • Rejuvenates your appearance without surgery

What Is The Significance Of Kybella Facial Rejuvenation Treatment?

Kybella is a non-surgical injectable procedure for reducing fat beneath the chin. To target the fat cells a series of deoxycholic acid injections are used. In most situations, no incisions are necessary, and downtime is limited.

An adult 18years or older with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin is the ideal candidate. If you have had or intend to have face surgery, have difficulty swallowing, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have an illness or medical condition in or near the proposed injection site, you may not be a good candidate.

According to a 2015 consumer study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67 percent of people are concerned by excess fat under the chin or neck. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable presently available to address the appearance of a double chin.

How Does Kybella Work?

Deoxycholic acid is actually a bile acid that your body naturally produces to aid with fat absorption. In Kybella injections, a synthetic variant of this is used as an injectable. Once injected, the acid eliminates fat cells behind the chin, preventing them from storing fat. Make sure your Kybella injections are administered by a competent healthcare practitioner since deoxycholic acid might damage other cells as well.

Your practitioner will identify & mark the injection sites with a marker before the treatment and may use a topical numbing medication or an ice pack to relieve any pain or discomfort. Under the chin, 20 to 30, and up to 50, injections are typically employed. The acid then gradually destroys fat cells, which are ultimately digested by the body over the next few weeks.

The number of cure sessions required varies from person to person. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve the best results. You can have up to 6 Kybella treatments, with a minimum of one month between each session.

Are Kybella Treatments Painful?

Treatments with Kybella are well tolerated! The Kybella needle itself is incredibly small and short, like a skin prick. Kybella therapy consists of multiple short “pricks” beneath your chin that should be painless. If the notion of needles still concerns you, we provide anxiety and pain-relieving solutions such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

Are There Any Risks & Side Effects?

Despite the fact that Kybella is a non-surgical treatment, some frequent adverse effects include discomfort, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness. In most circumstances, the recuperation period for Kybella is modest, and the amount of downtime varies from person to person. Minor side effects usually go away in one to two weeks.

Serious adverse effects included facial muscle paralysis, an uneven grin, difficulty swallowing, and nerve damage in the jaw. Any post-treatment pain should be discussed with your physician. Contact your healthcare experts right away if you encounter any of these severe adverse effects.

Benefits Of Kybella Treatment

  • Kybella therapy is rapid, which implies that it is convenient. Patients are normally required to attend two or more therapy sessions. Each visit to our office, on the other hand, may be done in under an hour. Waiting for the topical numbing treatment to take action may be the most time-consuming aspect of a visit. If a patient decides to “numb” their skin with ice instead, the session may be completed considerably more quickly.
  • Swelling should be expected. Kybella is a deoxycholic acid solution. This is a substance that breaks down the structure of fat cells so that the body can remove them. To do this, we inject a large volume of the injectable into subdermal tissue. Adding this fluid might cause transient swelling and a “sloshy” sensation that lasts for a few days. This is not really uncomfortable but can feel odd until it dissipates.
  • Expect soreness. In order for Kybella to operate, the solution is injected across a region that may extend from just under the chin to the Adam’s Apple. Some people have a smaller region treated, while others have a bigger area treated. Patients may suffer moderate pain or tenderness the day following therapy due to the number of injections.
  • Be prepared to wait. Patience is required while using a therapy like Kybella since fat cells are naturally removed by the body. This procedure might take many weeks to get going. However, once the fat has been removed, it is gone forever.

What To Expect After Kybella?

Your healthcare professional should create a treatment plan tailored to your individual requirements. Most people require more than one Kybella treatment to achieve their desired cosmetic objectives. Many persons who underwent Kybella therapy had obvious effects after two to four sessions in clinical tests.

In 59% of instances, six treatments were required. Once the deoxycholic acid eliminates fat cells in the submental region, the outcomes should be long-lasting, and further therapy is unlikely because the fat cells can no longer store fat.
