Are you one of the nearly 68% of people who are bothered by the fullness underneath their chin? This common yet often untreated area is a nuisance to many, even those who are fit and trim. But now there is a way to treat this unique area that is often impossible to eliminate with exercise. And the best part? You can do so without surgery.
This revolutionary new treatment for the double chin, called Kybella™, is available at the Quatela Center. Kybella™ has made its presence known across the nation, and Drs. Vito Quatela and William Koenig have put their support behind it.
This treatment, while relatively new to the market, has a 100% worth it rating on RealSelf.com, the cosmetic procedure website that offers dialogue between prospective patients and those who have had procedures, before and after photos, and honest feedback and reviews. And since “selfies” are not showing signs of going away anytime soon, the general public will continue to notice that often subtle, but no less annoying, double chin.
So how does Kybella™ work? Is everyone a candidate? And how invasive is it really? Read below for answers to these and other questions.
Kybella™ works best in patients who have moderate to severe submental fullness. This is best determined by Drs. Quatela or Koenig at your consultation appointment. The number of treatments and vials will also be dependent on the size and fullness of the area to be treated.
Kybella™ is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and which aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the treatment area, it destroys the fat cells and prevents them from being able to store fat in the future.
Using small needles, Kybella™ is administered through a series of injections into the area underneath the chin. There is mild discomfort associated with the treatment, but it is not considered painful. A topical or local anesthetic is generally used prior to treatment for your optimal comfort.
Treatments of Kybella™ are done in an in-office treatment room.
Kybella™ can be administered the same day as your consultation appointment and takes less than 30 minutes. Treatments are spaced approximately four weeks apart.
Why not? You deserve to look and feel your best, so if submental fat bothers you, why wouldn’t you be interested in a long-term solution to remove it without surgery and downtime?
