Sometimes called a “double chin,” submental fullness refers to excess fat underneath the chin and is an area that is difficult to target with diet and exercise. In a recent study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67 percent of men and women reported that they are dissatisfied with the appearance of excess fat underneath their chins. While this cosmetic concern has been traditionally corrected with surgical procedures, Kybella® is a quick, simple injection approved by the FDA that destroys submental fat cells without disrupting normal activities. At Skin Boutique, we offer Kybella to our clients in Detroit and Birmingham, MI for the quick, non-surgical reduction of submental fat to restore tighter contours to your facial profile.
Skin Boutique is your premier medical spa located in Birmingham, Michigan, offering complete aesthetic solutions.
During your treatment session, we will clean the treatment area and mark your skin where we feel the injections should be performed. We will give you a local anesthetic in the form of a numbing cream or injection, depending on what is discussed during your consultation. Once the anesthetic has a chance to work, your Cosmetic Injector will use a very fine needle to inject precise amounts of the Kybella solution into the strategically placed marks.
After the Injector is finished, we will provide you with an ice pack to reduce any swelling before you leave. The entire treatment will take between 15 and 30 minutes.
After your Kybella session, you will be able to return to your regular activities, although you may need to wear a compression bandage to help keep swelling to a minimum. The swelling can last 3 – 14 days, and you may also experience some numbness or bruising, depending on the amount injected. These side effects are perfectly normal and should go away after a few days, but could last a few weeks.
You can expect to see results in six to eight weeks following the procedure and you will notice a tightening of the skin in the chin area and less of an appearance of a double chin. The effects of Kybella are permanent, however, if you gain a significant amount of weight, you may see some fat come back to that area of your chin.
The cost of Kybella in Detroit and Birmingham, MI is dependent on multiple factors, including how many vials are required to help you achieve your desired appearance. Each vial is about $600 a piece, and on average, clients will require two vials per treatment session for two or four sessions to see maximum results.
After meeting with your cosmetic injector, they will create your treatment plan and our Patient Coordinator will be able to provide you with an accurate cost for your entire procedure.
