Eyebag and Double-Chin Treatments Pasadena
Using a combination of fat-melting injections and radiofrequency delivery, our treatments will reduce eyebags and double-chins. Dr. Li will evaluate each individual situation and prescribe a customized treatment plan. Kybella by Allergan is frequently used for chin treatments.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
How Kybella Works
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is 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 destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
What to expect with Kybella Treatments in Pasadena, CA?
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if Kybella is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
How is Kybella administered?
Treatment can only be administered by a Kybella-trained healthcare specialist. At each double chin treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
How many Kybella treatment sessions will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each Kybella treatment session in Pasadena is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
Will I need time to recover?
After Kybella treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, and difficulty swallowing or injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.
