Dr. Cynthia Cote knows how unsightly and bothersome a “double chin” can be for adult patients. Thanks to continued advances in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery and dermatology, patients have other options to choose from other than liposuction. Dr. Cynthia Cote of MD Cote in Maple Valley, Washington encourages patients to learn more about an injectable that can help. This injectable is referred to as Kybella®, and is a nonsurgical solution to a double chin, also referred to as “submental fullness.”
WHAT IS KYBELLA®?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for reducing the appearance of a double chin. It works by breaking down the unwanted fat cells in the treatment area, allowing for a slimmer and more defined jawline. Many people opt for Kybella® as an alternative to surgery, as it offers similar results with less downtime and discomfort.
HOW DOES KYBELLA® WORK?
Dr. Cynthia Cote and her team discuss with patients the benefits of Kybella® and how it works to reduce submental fullness. Kybella® is formulated with a molecule that is naturally found in the body called deoxycholic acid, which helps the body to break down and effectively absorb dietary fat. When these ingredients are injected into the treatment area, it destroys the fat cells, resulting in a slimmer appearance.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM KYBELLA® TREATMENT?
During your consultation with Dr. Cynthia Cote, she will assess your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan for you. Each Kybella® session typically lasts about 20 minutes with minimal discomfort.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO NOTICE THE RESULTS OF KYBELLA® INJECTIONS?
The results of Kybella® are often visible after two to four treatments, but some patients may require up to six sessions for optimal results. Please note that Kybella® only treats submental fullness – it does not address loose skin or sagging in other areas. It is FDA-approved for use in the chin and neck area only.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF KYBELLA®?
Many patients who are considering Kybella® may also think about the benefits of traditional liposuction. However, Kybella® has a few advantages over surgery that should be considered as well. Kybella®:
- is a non-surgical treatment option
- has minimal discomfort and downtime
- results in little to no scarring
- offers consistent, natural-looking results
