If you are unhappy with the appearance of fat under the chin, often called a double chin, Kybella® is an easy injectable treatment that can help you eliminate it. Suite Six Medical Aesthetics offers Kybella® to residents of Salem, Haverhill and Boston, MA, as well as those in Hampton, Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH, and the surrounding areas.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment that can be used to eliminate submental fullness, a condition often referred to as a double chin. The Kybella® formula is composed of deoxycholic acid, which is a compound that is naturally found in the body and aids in breaking down and absorbing fat. When injected into the fat under the chin, the Kybella® formula breaks down the fat cells to produce a more sculpted profile. Many patients achieve a more defined chin and jawline thanks to Kybella® injections.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Boston & Newburyport, MA?
The cost of your Kybella® treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Kybella® Administered?
Before a Kybella® treatment, we use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Then, a number of Kybella® injections will be made into the area beneath the chin. The Kybella® treatment takes less than 30 minutes to perform, which makes it an ideal treatment for patients with a busy lifestyle or anyone looking for a “lunch break” cosmetic treatment.
Is There Downtime After Kybella®?
Although patients may experience minor bruising, redness or sensitivity in the injection site, there is no downtime required after a Kybella® treatment. These effects typically fade within a few days, and do not prevent patients from resuming work and other activities immediately after their appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?
After receiving Kybella® injections, it can take a few weeks for the results to become visible. Most patients begin to notice significant results about one month after treatment, but most patients will need multiple Kybella® treatments to achieve their desired results. The Kybella® treatment permanently destroys fat cells under the chin, so they will no longer be able to accumulate fat. However, future weight gain can affect the results from your Kybella® treatment. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to make their results last as long as possible.
