Defining Beauty Wellness & Med Spa in Tampa offers Kybella

January 17, 2024

In the quest for a sharper and more defined facial profile, the presence of a double chin can be an unwelcome adversary. For those of us in Tampa seeking a non-surgical, non-invasive solution to this common aesthetic concern, Kybella stands as a beacon of hope. If you’re intrigued by the promise of a slimmer chin and a more sculpted appearance but are still uncertain about what Kybella entails, read on. This complete guide to Kybella treatment from Tampa’s own Defining Beauty Wellness & Med Spa is designed to unveil the transformative potential behind this innovative procedure.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to reduce moderate to severe fat beneath the chin, commonly known as a “double chin.” The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. The result is a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.

Benefits of Kybella

The benefits of Kybella extend beyond the visible transformation of your appearance. Here are some advantages that make Kybella treatment an attractive option for individuals looking to address submental fullness:

  • Non-Surgical Solution: Unlike traditional facelifts or chin liposuction, Kybella offers a minimally invasive alternative that requires no surgery.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The fat cells targeted by Kybella are permanently destroyed. Once you achieve your desired aesthetic, retreatment is not expected.
  • Minimal Downtime: With a Kybella session taking roughly 15-20 minutes, you can return to your normal routine right after the procedure.
  • Natural-Looking Contours: Kybella offers the benefit of a gradual and natural-looking improvement in your appearance as fat is gradually reduced over several sessions.

The Kybella Process: A Transformative Experience

When choosing Kybella at Defining Beauty Wellness & Med Spa, your treatment is not just a product of precision injections but a comprehensive process that begins well before you enter the treatment room.

The Consultation

Every Kybella treatment at our med spa starts with a thorough consultation. Karma Nguyen, APRN, FNP will sit down with you to understand your goals and to ensure that Kybella is the most fitting solution for your unique situation. During this session, we will discuss:

  • Your medical history, including any previous cosmetic procedures.
  • Your concerns and what you hope to achieve with Kybella treatment.
  • The number of sessions you may need based on the distribution and presentation of the submental fat.
  • What you can expect in terms of results and recovery time.
  • A cost estimate and scheduling for your sessions.

Preparing for Kybella

In the weeks leading up to your first treatment, we encourage you to discontinue the use of medications and supplements that thin the blood to minimize the risk of increased bruising. Additionally, if you smoke, abstaining from this habit can improve your overall experience by reducing the possibility of complications.

The Kybella Treatment

On the day of your scheduled Kybella treatment, we ensure you are as comfortable as possible. We will:

  • Cleanse the treatment area thoroughly.
  • Apply a topical numbing agent to provide comfort during the session.
  • Administer a series of small Kybella injections into the fat beneath your chin.
  • A typical session with Kybella lasts about 15-20 minutes.

After the Injection

Once the injections are completed, you are free to leave our med spa. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness immediately after the procedure, but these are transient and usually resolve within a few days.

Follow-Up and Addition of Sessions

Subsequent Kybella sessions are typically scheduled a month apart to measure the progress made and plan for any added treatments. You may require multiple sessions (up to six in total) to achieve the full effect, and that is entirely normal. The team at Defining Beauty Wellness & Med Spa is committed to guiding you at every step towards your goal of a more elegant profile.
