Kybella reviews – is this an effective solution for my double chin? Top experts at Boston’s best Medical Spa weigh in

Are you looking to banish your double chin, also known as submental fullness, but are not very keen on going under the knife to do so? You are definitely not alone, bothersome chin fat is a common cosmetic complaint. All too often this is down to genetics and no amount of diet or exercise modifications will make a difference.

Kybella could provide you with an effective alternative to surgery. It is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for double chins.

Online real-world patient reviews of Kybella treatment are very positive, with the majority of patients reporting to be very satisfied with the drastic improvement in their under chin fat. Many of these online reviews include before and after pictures which demonstrate the dramatic, yet natural results that Kybella can offer you.

The effects of Kybella have also been clinically studied, with the publication of several clinical trials. In fact, two randomised, multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials were used to evaluate Kybella treatment for FDA approval. These studies enrolled 1022 adults who presented with moderate or severe amounts of fat underneath their chin. Based on this research Kybella’s manufacturer reports that 79% of treated patients were satisfied with the improvement in the appearance of their chin area 12 weeks after their final treatment.

So, based on the reviews and research it is certainly worth exploring the option of Kybella treatment to eliminate your stubborn chin fat. At Evolution MedSpa Boston our expert doctors are able to offer you the innovative Kybella treatment, backed up with a wealth of experience and skill. Call us today to book your initial consultation and find out how you can benefit from Kybella.

How does Kybella work?

The active ingredient of Kybella treatment is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance naturally made by your body to help with the breakdown and absorption of fats.

The active ingredient of Kybella treatment is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance naturally made by your body to help with the breakdown and absorption of fats.

Kybella is injected into the stubborn fat cells underneath your chin. It works to dissolve the membranes surrounding these fat cells, causing them to burst open and release their contents. Your body then naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells permanently, which means that the fat beneath your chin is eliminated for good!

Kybella treatment typically requires around 20-50 injections into the treated area during each session. As deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance, it is likely to be well tolerated by your body and this is the case with most patients. Given how safe and well tolerated Kybella treatment is and the dramatic results that it produces, it is a popular treatment alternative to liposuction.

Chin fat reduction: Kybella vs CoolSculpting treatment

Kybella and CoolSculpting Mini (CoolSculpting using a specific mini applicator to target the chin area) are both FDA-approved, non-surgical options for minimising the appearance of stubborn chin fat. This may lead you to question which one is the best choice for you.

So what are the similarities and differences between these two treatments?

Similarities

  • Both procedures are considered to be safe and should cause you minimal side effects
  • Both procedures also carry little downtime and don’t require the use of anaesthesia
  • Both treatments will probably require multiple sessions to see results and these results will not be visible instantly

Differences

  • Kybella involves the use of multiple injections during each session whereas CoolSculpting Mini uses a probe. This means patients who do not like needles may prefer to go down the CoolSculpting Mini route
  • As each Kybella session involves the administration of multiple injections, this may be more suitable if you have smaller fatty areas to treat
  • Whereas CoolSculpting Mini targets the entire area in contact with the treatment probe and so it may be more suitable for mature or loose skin
  • If you carry a lot of excess fat under your chin then CoolSculpting Mini will probably work out more cost-effective for you

Will I see Kybella results after one treatment?

Kybella is an innovative cosmetic injectable which can help you to remove the troublesome excess fat from underneath your chin.

If you have been thinking for a while about how to get a better jawline, then you may have stumbled across Kybella during your research and have many questions that you want answered. One question that patients frequently have is whether or not you will see visible results after one Kybella session.

Similar to with CoolSculpting treatment, the results of Kybella are not instant. It takes a while for the treated fat cells to be destroyed and eliminated from your body. Typically, you can expect to see results around 4-6 weeks after your treatment session. Quite often, more than one treatment is required to achieve the results that your desire. The amount of treatments needed varies between patients based on how your body reacts to Kybella. Some patients may need up to four treatments and these additional sessions are spaced 8-10 weeks apart.

How long do Kybella results last?

Once you have had your treatment, the fat cells that have been targeted are permanently destroyed. This means that your results are permanent and when you have reached your goal you should need no further treatment. However, it is important to stick to a healthy diet and exercise plan as, even though these fat cells have been removed, surrounding fat cells are still able to accumulate and store fat.

How does the cost of Kybella compare to chin fat reduction surgery?

As well as the extra risks and longer recovery time, surgical options to reduce excess chin fat, such as liposuction and neck lifts, also carry a much higher price tag.

The cost of Kybella does vary widely, depending on the expertise and reputation of your chosen clinic. However, as with other facial cosmetic treatments, it would not be wise to cut costs at the expense of quality results. The final cost of treatment also depends on how many sessions you will need to reach your goal.

When you come for your initial consultation at Evolution MedSpa Boston, our expert doctors, Dr. Eric Cappiello and Dr. Mariam Cappiello, will discuss everything in detail with you to make sure that Kybella is your best option. Here they will also talk you through how much you can expect to pay for your treatment and answer any questions that you may have.
