Is Kybella Double Chin Treatment Safe?
Developed over the course of nine years and having undergone over 20 clinical studies, Kybella was tested on over 2,600 patients before being introduced to the market.
Clinical Tests of Kybella Double Chin Treatment showed over 80% of patients claiming to be completely satisfied with their results. As a result, the FDA Medical Advisory Committee gave the Kybella Double Chin Treatment a unanimous recommendation of approval.
What are the Side Effects of Kybella Double Chin Treatment?
The only side effect reported by most Kybella patients is just some minor tenderness in the sight of the injection.
All other side effects reported after Kybella Double Chin Treatment are extremely rare, and are similar to side effects associated with dermal fillers and other cosmetic injections.
In some tremendously uncommon cases, skin damage has been reported when the injection occurs outside the fat deposit. However, when administered by a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali, this is extremely unlikely to happen.
Additionally, injection in too close of proximity to a nerve has potential to affect the appearance of the mouth – which is why the procedure should only be trusted to a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali.
In our renowned Troy, Mi area med spa we have never had a complication from Kybella double chin injections. So patients can confidently consider Kybella as a safe and effective treatment for a double chin.
Whos is a Good Candidate For Kybella Double Chin Treatment?
Almost any adult in good health with extra submental fat under the chin is a good candidate for Kybella. For busy people, it is an excellent alternative to surgery because there is no downtime.
While Kybella is highly safe and effective effective, patients who have undergone other cosmetic procedures on the jawline, neck, or chin may require additional evaluation prior to being approved for Kybella Double Chin Treatment.
Additionally, individuals with bleeding problems, who have difficulty swallowing, or who have other medical issues that affect the neck and face may be discouraged from undergoing the Kybella Double Chin Treatment.
How Long until I See Kybella Double Chin Treatment Results?
In most cases, patients who receive Kybella Double Chin Treatment begin to see results after a period of a few weeks – with complete results developing over several months. The more Kybella treatments that are administered, the more results continue to improve.
Is Kybella Double Chin Treatment Effective?
After two clinical trials on over a thousand patients suffering from double chin submental fat, Kybella was approved by the FDA. During the study, patients were given either Kybella or a placebo, with patients injected with Kybella demonstrating significantly less subdermal fat when compared to the placebo patients.
We have administered Kybella double chin treatments to more than a hundred patients in our Troy, MI area med spa with spectacular results.
