Double Chin Treatment With Kybella
Treatment of Double Chin With Kybella at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre
Kybella is now available in Australia (under another name that we cannot mention here) to improve the appearance of a double chin.
‘Double Chin’, is a common issue most men and women face as they age. The double chin issue occurs due to a number of factors such as change in weight, ageing and genetics.
Until recently lipo-suction treatments have been the main option available in Australia , however the cost of these treatments has been very high and out of reach of many. Side effects have also been a deterrent.
With the introduction of Kybella, the treatment is now possible for many average Australians. Kybella is not new. It has been used in USA and many overseas countries for a few years and is FDA approved.
At Nitai, our doctor, Dr. Shobhna Singh , has been trained by Global experts in this area. She is now offering free and no-obligation Kybella consultations. Following a detailed consultation, treatments may be booked.
How Does Kybella Work?
In our body, the presence of deoxycholic acid, helps in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. Deoxycholic Acid in a synthesised form, is an active ingredient in Kybella.
Fat deposits in the chin, referred to as ‘double chin’ can be reduced by the injection of Kybella by breaking down the fat cells. The fat is then absorbed by the body.
As a result, visible improvement in the chin profile can be achieved. Recent studies have shown that more than 75% of patients reported High satisfaction with their contoured chin profile using Kybella.
How Can Double-chin Treatments Help With Self-perceptions?
Studies have shown that following a Kybella double-chin treatment, patients have reported feeling happier and younger, less embarrased, less bothered and less self-conscious.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Kybella treatments are customised for each patient to suit one’s anatomy and circumstances.
Upto 6 treatments, generally 6 weeks apart may be given. It is likely that visible results will be noticeable in 2 to 4 treatments.
How Long Will the Result Last?
The Kybella treatment works by destroying fat cells in the chin. Once destroyed, these cells will not return. As a result, the treatment is permanent. Please note that multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the desired result.
Who Can Administer the Kybella Treatment?
As the Kybella is a Prescription only medicine, treatment should only be administered under the strict direction of trained Medical doctor. At Nitai, your safety is paramount so we take this matter very seriously. At Nitai, treatment with Kybella, will only be administered by a trained and very experienced doctor. We do not delegate your safety to a nurse.
Are Before/after Photos Available?
As the Kybella treatment has only been launched in Australia, no local Before/After images are available. In the meantime, the following images supplied by Allergan, the local supplier of Kybella, give us an idea of what is achievable.
What Is Most Common Side Effect of the Kybella Treatment?
You can expect to experience swelling as a result of the treatment. In fact swelling is a sign that the treatment is working. If there is NO swelling, please contact our doctor. Swelling can typically last 2-3 days with the most severe in the first 24 hours.
Other side effects can include bruising, , pain, numbness, redness, and formation of small areas of firmness.
You may use ice/cold packs and /or oral analgesics to manage side effects as needed.
We do recommend patients to take the day off work following the treatment.
