Do you have a double chin that makes you feel self-conscious? Do you opt out of photographs due to submental fullness? Do you wish there was something you could do to improve your profile? If so, you’ll love to hear about double chin treatment at InjectAbility Clinic in Torrance, CA. Today, we’re taking a closer look at what to expect during treatment, what results to expect after treatment, who qualifies, and more.
What Should You Expect From Double Chin Treatment?
What to expect during your double chin treatment depends on several factors, including the scope of your concerns and the amount of excess fat in the region. If you are only worried about your double chin, you may only receive one vial of medication. On the other hand, if you have concerns about your neck, too, you may need up to three vials. Note, regardless of the severity of your concerns, you will receive no more than 50 injections per session.
Typically, Kybella sessions take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. Since the injections are administered with a 1/2″ needle, there is no need for the application of a topical anesthetic because the injections won’t cause pain.
What Results Should You Expect From Double Chin Treatment?
As a general rule, you should expect to lose between 20 and 30% of the fat in the treatment area per injection session. You should also expect to wait several weeks before seeing the final results of your treatment. The deoxycholic acid in this formula is almost identical to the deoxycholic acid that your gut produces, and it acts the same way, too. It destroys fat cells and leaves them for your lymphatic system to clean up.
Therefore, the length of time it will take you to see your final results depends on two major factors. First, how much excess fat was in the treatment area before your injections will affect how long it will take you to see your final results. Second, the efficiency of your lymphatic system plays a major role in determining how long it will take before you achieve your ideal profile.
How Soon Should You Expect To See Your Final Results?
How soon you should expect to see your final results also depends on how many treatment sessions you will need to contour your new and improved profile. Depending on your unique case, you may need between one and six treatment sessions before you are satisfied with your results. Typically, these sessions are spaced around a month apart, and it shouldn’t take you longer than three months to see the final results of a given treatment.
Therefore, if you need five treatment sessions spaced one month apart, and your final results become apparent two months after each treatment, you can see your final results in just six months. Put another way, you could schedule your first injection session for January and have a slim profile by June.
How Many Sessions You Should Expect To Need
Typically, people only need one or two treatment sessions when their double chin is caused by folding, sagging skin rather than excess fat. When submental fullness is caused by a significant amount of excess fat, five or six injection sessions are usually required.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Kybella Injections?
As a general rule, you will qualify for Kybella injections if you are a fairly healthy adult and worried about your double chin. You also will probably qualify if you are worried about bands of neck fat making you look older than you are.
However, it is worth mentioning that your appearance and aesthetic goals aren’t the only factors affecting whether you qualify. It is also important that you are fairly healthy, have realistic expectations, and can follow all instructions.
Who Isn’t a Good Candidate for Kybella?
You may not be considered a good candidate for Kybella if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking blood-thinners daily. You also may not qualify for this treatment if you have a history of developing keloid scars. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you will have to wait until you are neither pregnant nor breastfeeding to consider this treatment. If you have a history of scarring easily, you may be a better candidate for CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting, like Kybella, is a non-invasive fat removal treatment. You won’t qualify if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or on blood-thinners, but it may be appropriate if you scar easily. During CoolSculpting sessions, a special gel and pad are applied to the submental region, and the device freezes the fat cells to death without damaging the nearby skin or muscle tissues. Up to six sessions may be required, and final results develop in under a year.
