Kybella™

Eliminate your double chin.

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys and eliminates stubborn fat cells in the chin area for a more sculpted chin profile.

Both men and women of any age and weight can be unhappy with a “double chin”. Submental fullness, which is the technical term for visible fullness and roundness of fat under the chin, often resists all your efforts at diet and exercise, with liposuction previously being the only solution. Today, to treat this condition, the specialists at Kucumber Skin Lounge use Kybella™, the only non-surgical injection designed to target and destroy the walls of fat cells for a reduction in the appearance of facial fullness beneath your chin. Revolutionary Kybella was awarded an Allure 2015 Beauty Breakthrough. Now you can feel renewed confidence in your appearance when you:

  • Reduce under-chin fat
  • Sculpt and lift
  • Permanently eliminate fat cells
  • Improve overall facial definition
  • Results last for years

TREATMENT

Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. In your body, naturally occurring deoxycholic acid breaks down dietary fat. At Kucumber, Kybella is injected directly under the chin to target the fat there. Your specialist will assess your basic medical history, skin elasticity, and facial anatomy, and discuss your desired treatment goals. The number and placement of injections is tailored to your individual treatment plan which is based on this thoughtful assessment.

WHAT TO EXPECT

As part of your pre-treatment assessment, your skin’s elasticity will be evaluated to ensure the skin will “snap back” once the fat has been eliminated. Skin with poor elasticity may still sag, leading to less-satisfying outcomes. Your Kucumber specialist can suggest additional treatments to improve skin elasticity, such as laser skin tightening, for optimal outcomes from your Kybella treatment.

Common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

These effects typically resolve within eight days post-injection. Once you reach your desired treatment goals, additional injections are not typically needed since the treated cells can no longer store fat. Fat will not recur in a treated area; however, post-procedure weight gain can lead to undesirable fat deposits in adjacent areas.

Kybella is the definitive non-surgical treatment for fullness under the chin. With this advanced Kucumber service, you can feel positive about your newly defined facial contours.
