Are you ready to do something effective about a double chin? You now have a non-surgical option that truly delivers: Kybella. This injectable medication works to help your body shed excess fat that lingers beneath your chin.
Kybella is a prescription medication that has been FDA approved to reduce “submental fat,” otherwise known as a double chin. Unfortunately, the body likes to store fat in that area, even in people who are generally slim and fit. The fat beneath the chin can add years to your appearance, making you look heavier than you are.
Treatments with Kybella in Denver at La Fontaine Aesthetics may be the perfect solution for you. Kybella is made from a synthetic version of a naturally-occurring substance that has the function of breaking down dietary fat. When injected into the under-chin zone, it destroys a percentage of the fat cells in that area, which are then naturally shed by the body.
Kybella injections have become a popular treatment performed at La Fontaine, with patients of all ages taking advantage of what this amazing pharmaceutical can accomplish. The benefits include:

Every person is different. Some may require just one treatment, while others may need a series of treatments, from two to six, typically spaced about a month apart. While you will need to have some patience to see the results, it is well worth the wait – the fat cells attacked by the Kybella will never return! Your jawline will once again appear smooth and defined. If you have very lax skin quality, you may want to consider one of our skin-tightening procedures along with your Kybella treatments.

Kybella’s active ingredient, a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule. When occurring in the body, it serves the function of breaking down the fat in the foods you consume. When Kybella is injected into the under-chin area, it gets to work destroying fat cells. Once a fat cell is destroyed, it is gone forever. That means even if you gain a few pounds in the future, the amount of stored fat beneath your chin will be less. Once you have completed your course of injections of Kybella in Denver, no further treatments will be needed to maintain your look.
Once the fat cells are destroyed by Kybella treatments, they won’t return. However, other fat cells can still grow if you gain weight. To maintain permanent results, it’s important to stick to a healthy diet and exercise. Most patients enjoy a contoured, defined jawline for the long term.
For several days to a week before your treatment, avoid ibuprofen and acetaminophen to help prevent post-treatment bruising. Also avoid alcohol, caffeine, spicy or junk foods, which can contribute to swelling or irritation.
The price of any cosmetic procedure is difficult to determine ahead of time because it depends on multiple factors. On average, Kybella costs between $1000 and $2400. However, the price may vary greatly depending on how many sessions the patient requires.
