Kybella injections in Salt Lake City

A double chin is almost impossible to lose with traditional weight loss methods, such as exercise and a balanced diet. If you’re struggling with a double chin, which makes you look heavier and older, Kybella in Salt Lake City might be your ideal solution. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine, we provide Kybella injections to dissolve unwanted fat cells from under the chin, helping you achieve a chiseled jawline.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the only non-surgical, injectable treatment for double chin. It received FDA approval in 2015 as a treatment for submental fullness, i.e., unwanted fat tissues under the chin. When injected into targeted areas around the chin, it encourages your body to metabolize and expel the unwanted fat cells. Before Kybella, the only way to treat a double chin was through surgical liposuction, which involved considerable downtime.

  • Improves self-esteem and confidence
  • Minimal side effects and risks

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is made of an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that makes your body metabolize and absorb dietary fat. When injected under the chin, Kybella Salt Lake City focuses your body’s metabolic activities in the targeted areas to destroy the unwanted fat cells and facilitate their expulsion from the body via the lymphatic system. This helps you achieve a chiseled jawline.

Your Kybella treatment

Your Kybella treatment starts with a consultation with our cosmetic providers. We’ll take “before” images of you and discuss your goals and concerns. Our clinicians will apply a numbing gel underneath your chin to ensure complete comfort. The cosmetic provider will also mark the treatment areas underneath your chin to guide the procedure.

You will receive 10 to 50 injections on the treatment areas over several minutes. You may experience a mild discomfort and a slight burning sensation because of the chemical, but topical anesthesia will minimize discomfort. We’ll also provide ice packs to reduce the burning sensations. After the treatment, your chin will be wrapped in a compression bandage.

Kybella recovery and aftercare

You may experience mild soreness and swelling after the treatment with Kybella in Salt Lake City. You may also feel like your double chin is growing, but that’s a temporary sensation caused by the post-treatment swelling. The swelling will peak after about 24 hours and last for a few days or weeks. You may also experience some bruising and redness. These side effects are common for most injectable treatments.

Kybella results

Kybella provides gradual, natural-looking results because it simply activates your body’s metabolic processes to facilitate fat dissolution. As such, you’ll notice the results over 2 to 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. The total number of treatments necessary will depend on your cosmetic goals and the amount of fat cells that need to be removed. However, Kybella promises permanent results, so you don’t need maintenance treatments.

  • Are at least 18 years of age
