Kybella Injections in Utah
What is Kybella?
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic problem. This condition impacts a broad range of adult men and women and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. This condition is often resistant to diet and exercise treatments alone.
If you are bothered by submental fullness, you are not alone. Vincent Surgical Arts is one of the first practices in Utah to offer Kybella treatments. To determine if you are a good candidate or have any questions, contact our office. Our Salt Lake City providers offer the best Kybella injection services in Utah.
How Does Kybella Work?
The Kybella injection is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that is naturally produced in our own bodies. Deoxycholic acid produced in the body helps break down and absorb fat cells. Kybella is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into submental fat, the Kybella procedure destroys fat cells and rids you of unwanted double chin fat.
What to Expect from Kybella Treatment?
The Kybella injection is administered into the fat tissue under the chin. Multiple injections are administered with each treatment. Every person’s needs are different, so the number of injections and treatments may vary from patient to patient. We offer complimentary consultations to determine the best plan for you.
Patients sometimes experience mild discomfort during the Kybella procedure. Numbing alternatives will be discussed upon appointment. Moderate bruising, swelling, numbness, and mild discomfort can be expected following your treatment. This is due to the destruction of fat cells and the body’s natural tissue repair process. These symptoms should resolve within 72 hours and you may resume regular activity after treatment. Call us at 801-942-1111 to schedule a free Kybella injection consultation!
