Kybella for Men
Kybella for Men
Define your Jawline. Some men struggle with fitted collars or are self-conscious in suits and ties. To make matters worse, submental fat is resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, there is now a solution, Kybella. This injectable treatment works to reduce and eradicate the stubborn submental fat responsible for unsightly double chins in men.
Kybella comes from deoxycholic acid, a compound found naturally in the human body that breaks down fat for absorption and elimination. Upon injection, deoxycholic acid triggers the demise of unwanted fat cells, which are then released as part of the body’s regular process of elimination. In the past, the only option involved invasive incisions and liposuction to contour and shape this area. Kybella treatments are virtually pain-free with minimal downtime and no need for anesthesia. The result is a chiseled neck and jawline with outstanding definition.
Treatment & Results
Although Kybella is a great treatment for both men and woman, the treatment protocol often differs between the two sexes. At Bella Body Medical Spa, we take a customized approach to ensure maximum results for each patient. The main difference between men and woman from an anatomical point of view in the neck region is the thickness of the fat layer and the natural central neck fat pad. Men tend to have a thicker and bulkier fat pad in the neck. This requires higher doses of Kybella, or possibly more treatment sessions to achieve an optimal result.
The exact number of injections required will be determined during your consultation. Typically, we find that between two and six sessions are sufficient to see dramatic changes in the profile. Each treatment lasts approximately 20-30 minutes, with 14-50 injections per appointment.
Patients may experience mild tingling, numbness, redness or swelling at the treatment site. These symptoms will resolve themselves within the first week and should not be cause for alarm. Any mild discomfort can be relieved with ice packs and ibuprofen.
Initial results are visible within 10-14 days of the first treatment session, but each additional treatment will yield exponentially increased benefits. Following your last treatment session, the double chin is permanently eliminated without need for further follow up.
