The accumulation of excess fat underneath the chin can make you look heavy and old. A double chin is notoriously hard to eliminate, even with regular exercise and a balanced diet.

Dissolve Excess Fat

Until recently, the only way to get rid of excess fat under the chin was through liposuction. But Kybella allows us to dissolve excess fat with a few injections. Cutella Medical Spa provides a personalized Kybella in San Antonio treatment to eliminate excess submental fat.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical, injectable treatment for submental fullness, i.e., a double chin. The medical provider carefully injects Kybella into targeted areas underneath your chin to dissolve the excess fat cells. Your body eliminates the unwanted fat cells, making your chin and jawline look more slender and prominent. Kybella takes some time to work — you may need a series of 6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results.

Dissolve Excess Fat with Kybella

Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment for submental fullness. It’s made of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring component that stimulates the dissolution of excess fat cells in your body. When injected into the submental region under the chin, deoxycholic acid dissolves and destroys the unwanted submental fat tissues. Over time, your body expels the excess fat cells as waste, making your chin look slimmer and more contoured.

Your Kybella Treatment in San Antonio

Cutella Medical Spa performs personalized Kybella in San Antonio. The medical provider will carefully examine your facial features, discuss your goals and concerns, and review your medical history. Dr. Abyar will determine if you’re a candidate for Kybella and curate a personalized treatment plan, which involves selecting the number of units you need for optimal results. Your facial skin is cleansed, following which a numbing gel is applied.

The medical provider will carefully deliver the appropriate units of Kybella into the targeted areas under your chin. Most patients need up to 50 injections around the chin for optimal results. Depending on your unique condition and goals, you may need around 6 Kybella treatments spaced a month apart for optimal results. The final results should appear a month after your final session. The results may take time, but they’re also permanent.

Side Effects & Recovery

Kybella may cause mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites for a few days. The side effects are mild and tolerable. There’s no downtime, but you should avoid strenuous workouts and physical activities for a day after Kybella in San Antonio.

Kybella FAQs

How long does each Kybella treatment session typically last?

A Kybella session typically lasts around 15 to 30 minutes.

Why would I choose Kybella over liposuction?

Kybella is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, involving no incisions, anesthesia, or extensive downtime. It’s a safer choice for those who want to avoid surgery-related risks, such as complications related to anesthesia or the risk of infections. Additionally, Kybella’s results appear gradually, allowing for a more natural transformation.

How does Kybella compare to liposuction in terms of recovery time?

Compared to liposuction, Kybella generally has a shorter recovery period, with most individuals resuming their daily activities within a few days. After a Kybella treatment, patients can typically resume normal activities the same day, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a few days. Meanwhile, liposuction involves an extended recovery period of several weeks.

Is Kybella suitable for both men and women?

Yes, Kybella is suitable for both men and women looking to eliminate submental fat and achieve a more defined jawline.

Is Kybella painful?

Kybella in San Antonio may cause mild discomfort during the treatment, but this is typically manageable. Afterward, temporary swelling and bruising can occur, but overall, discomfort is minimal.
