 Non-Invasive Kybella May Improve Your Neckline | Encino | CalabasasMinimally invasive cosmetic procedures received at a qualified med spa can offer significant improvement in the way a person looks. The annual figures compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgery continue to demonstrate a consistently growing demand for non-surgical injectable procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers.

Botox, arguably the most popular facial anti-aging injectable treatment in the world, is produced by Allergan, Inc. Now the company has introduce Kybella, another FDA approved injectable treatment designed to dissolve fat below the chin. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Kybella to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Key to Success

The key to success with a procedure such as Kybella injectable treatment to enhance the neckline lies in consulting a comprehensive med spa that is equipped to provide a full array of non-surgical aesthetic options. At such a center, a patient can expect to receive the appropriate treatment modality for their unique circumstances.

Just as with any surgical procedure, even for a non-surgical treatment such as Kybella, there are appropriate candidates as well as patients with contraindications. The first step is to choose a medical spa where comprehensive evaluation and care is available for patients with a specific aesthetic concern such as excess fat deposits under the chin.

The patient should ideally avoid a place where the only treatment option they offer is Kybella injections. It is important to remember that “if all you have is a hammer the whole world is a nail,” which rings true for cosmetic service providers who may only offer a single treatment option such as Kybella.

 

When to Choose Kybella?

Kybella injections are currently approved by the FDA only for the cosmetic fat reduction of submental fat. The ideal candidate will have reasonably elastic skin in the area below the chin. The adipose tissue excess in the submittal and chin neck angle will only be mild to moderate. The candidate should not have a major discrepancy of the mandibular jaw with the midface, or have an exceptionally steep mandibular plain angle.

 

Who should Avoid Kybella Injections?

If the patient has significant skin laxity in the neck area, or a considerable deflation of the neck due to weight loss with demarcated platysmal bands should avoid Kybella injectable procedure. In such a condition, if fat tissue is reduced with Kybella, it will only worsen the deformity.

Kybella treatment should also be avoided for patients suffering from a deep underbite and a small chin with an oblique chin-neck angle. The key ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is meant to dissolve fat. But this biochemical also produces some inflammation to promote skin retraction and collagen production.

Therefore, loose skin with a recessed chin and an oblique chin neck angle is not likely to produce substantive positive outcomes. Chin implants and liposuction may be the right treatment combination in such cases. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas for Kybella.

Proven Safety and Efficacy

In 2015, the FDA gave its approval for Kybella injectable treatment for the cosmetic reduction of moderate to severe pockets of unwanted fat under the chin. With this approval, Kybella now holds the distinction of being the first and only injectable med spa procedure to be approved by the FDA specifically for chin fat reduction.

Positive feedback from both patients and physicians has further added to the rapidly rising popularity of this treatment. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas for Kybella.

 

How does Kybella Work?

The primary active ingredient in Kybella injections is deoxycholic acid. This is a natural occurring agent in the human body, which makes Kybella a biocompatible medication. This biochemical performs the function of supporting natural fat absorption in the body.

When this active agent is delivered to the targeted fat layers underneath the chin via Kybella injections, it triggers disruption of the cellular membrane in the unwanted fat cells. The fat cells consequently start getting eliminated from the area.

It is important to recognize that Kybella injections are powerful, and should only be administered by a qualified provider. An incorrect delivery of the injections can result in unintended disintegration of surrounding healthy tissue in the chin area.

 

How to Select a Kybella Provider?

Amy G. Egan, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director of the Office of Drug Evaluation III in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research recommends that only a licensed medical professional should offer Kybella injections. The treatment provider should inform the patient beforehand about the risks and complications that may be associated with Kybella drug.

The provider should also inform the patient that the FDA has approved Kybella only for the treatment of submental fat below the chin. Kybella’s efficacy in treating fat pockets in other parts of the body is not yet established.

 

Injection Protocol

The provider should place the Kybella injections directly into the targeted fat tissue under the chin. Multiple injections are usually provided in one treatment session. The patient may receive a maximum of six Kybella treatments, with each session at least four weeks apart. Kybella drug must not be diluted or blended with other compounds.
