With the advancement in cosmetic and aesthetic medicine, new and effective ways of reducing or eliminating stubborn fat from particular body parts are now easier, particularly through non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques. Similarly, Kybella injections in Dubai are receiving widespread acclaim for their efficiency in reducing double chins. But how do they work? Let’s find out!

What is Kybella Injection?

 Kybella injections are primarily used to improve the appearance of a double chin, known medically as submental fullness. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that contains deoxycholic acid, which works to break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. This procedure is popular for those looking to reduce their double chin without surgery. 

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Kybella Injection?

An ideal candidate for Kybella injections is one who:

  • Has substantial amount of fat in the chin area
  • Does not want to undergo surgical double chin treatment 
  • Is in overall good health
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Has no unhealed wound in the chin area

What are the Benefits of Kybella Injections?

Following are some of the key benefits of Kybella Injections:

Reduces Double Chin: Kybella effectively reduces the fat under the chin, leading to a more contoured neck profile and jawline.

Minimally Invasive: As an injectable treatment, it doesn’t require surgery, which means no incisions and typically a quicker recovery compared to surgical alternatives.

Long-term Fat Destruction: Once the deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells in the treatment area, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat, leading to long-lasting results.

Improved Aesthetics: Can enhance the overall balance and proportion of the face, leading to an improved aesthetic appearance and possibly boosting self-confidence.

Customizable: Treatment plans can be tailored to meet the specific needs and desired outcomes of the individual.

Quick Procedure: Each session usually takes 15-20 minutes, with no need for a lengthy preparation or recovery time.

Kybella Injection Procedure

Before the treatment, you’ll have a consultation with a board-certified aesthetician. During the consultation, you will discuss your aesthetic goals. Your aesthetician will assess your medical history, examine the area under your chin, and then determine if you are a good candidate for Kybella.

Preparation: Your aesthetician will clean the treatment area under the chin and apply a topical numbing agent to make you comfortable during the procedure. Some practitioners might also use a temporary grid-like tattoo or markings to guide the injections.

Injection: After that, with the help of a fine needle, the provider injects small amounts of Kybella into multiple sites under the chin. The exact number of injections will depend on your specific treatment plan and the amount of fat being targeted. The deoxycholic acid in Kybella works to dissolve fat cells over time.

What to Expect After the Procedure?

After the injections, you might experience swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin. These are common side effects and usually subside on their own. 

Post-Procedure Care

The healthcare provider will give you specific aftercare instructions. These generally include:

  • Avoid strenuous activity for a couple of days
  • Apply ice to reduce swelling
  • Avoid applying cosmetics or makeup to the treated area for a couple of days
  • While sleeping, keep your head elevated

Results

The results of Kybella are gradually visible as the body processes and eliminates the destroyed fat cells. This can take several weeks to months. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone permanently, and the results are typically long-lasting, provided there are no significant fluctuations in weight.

How Much Does Kybella Cost in Dubai?

The starting cost of a Kybella injection in Dubai is AED 2100. However, the actual price may vary depending on the clinic’s location. Similarly, some other cost determining factors also play a vital role, including:

  • Expertise of the practitioner
  • Amount of fat in the chin area and the number of injections required to treat it
  • The reputation of the clinic

How Many Sessions of Kybella Injections for Double Chin? 

The number of sessions depends on the severity of the submental fullness. Generally, multiple treatment sessions are needed to achieve desired results. These are usually spaced at least one month apart, and the total number of sessions varies from person to person.

Is Kybella Safe? 

Yes, Kybella injections are considered safe for double chin treatment. They are FDA-approved and hence there is no doubt over its authenticity.
