Kybella in Severna Park, MD | Skinlogic

At Skinlogic, we take pride in offering an array of medical aesthetic services designed to meet our clients’ individual needs and help them feel their best. As part of our comprehensive suite, Kybella®, an innovative non-surgical treatment for submental fullness, has shown remarkable results.

A double chin results from excess fat accumulating under your chin, along your jawline, and in your neck. This fat deposit can be stubborn, often resisting diet and exercise. As a result, even people who are otherwise at a healthy body weight may develop submental fat as they age and lose skin elasticity. In this era of selfies and video calls, unfavorable lighting and angles can emphasize your chin, making it look more prominent and detracting from your self-esteem.

If you have tried everything you can think of to minimize or hide your double chin, you know how frustrating this issue can be. Luckily, the Skinlogic team offers Kybella – the first-ever prescription drug designed to eliminate submental fullness. After a few injections, you can finally achieve a slim and attractive jawline without resorting to surgery.

How Do Kybella Injections Work?

In the past, the only way to eliminate a double chin was through surgical interventions like a neck lift or liposuction. While these procedures are highly effective at removing submental fat, the risks and downtime may be a deterrent. Kybella is the first FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment to dramatically reduce the fat pocket beneath the chin.

At Skinlogic, our providers use PCDC – the compounded form of Kybella. It is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a molecule produced naturally in your dietary tract to break down and absorb the fat you eat. When injected into your submental fat, this ingredient begins breaking apart excess fat, which your body will naturally dispose of as waste.

The result is a slimmer, younger facial profile.

At Skinlogic our providers lead a client-centered practice. Our expert staff has undergone rigorous training in the art of injectable treatments, including Kybella.

Kybella Treatments at Skinlogic in Severna Park, MD

Your aesthetic journey starts with a private consultation – this meeting is your opportunity to discuss your goals so your provider can customize a treatment plan according to your facial profile. Depending on your skin laxity and submental fullness, you may need a series of Kybella injections spaced out over several months to effectively reach your aesthetic goals.

Each Kybella injection delivers the product into the subcutaneous fat beneath the chin and jaw. Once the deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells, your body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems will process the dead cells, and you’ll eventually excrete them. Best of all, Kybella prevents you from storing submental fat in the future, so you can enjoy long-term results.

Kybella treatments at Skinlogic are quick and convenient, lasting only 15 to 30 minutes per session. In the weeks after your double chin treatment, you’ll start noticing a gradual reduction of your double chin and an improved jawline contour.

Are You a Good Candidate for Kybella Injections?

Most adults who are unhappy with submental fullness and would like to avoid surgery are excellent candidates for Kybella injections. Kybella is safe and effective on all skin types and tones and is best for clients over age 18. If you have an active infection, bleeding disorder, or other medical conditions, please consult with your primary care doctor before pursuing treatment.

Recovery After Kybella Treatment

Since Kybella injections are completely non-surgical, there is no recovery or designated healing time. Swelling and bruising are typical side effects that will initially make your neck look swollen. However, the inflammation is a sign that the treatment is taking effect, so don’t worry. This typically resolves 3-5 days after treatment.

Take these steps to minimize side effects and see results sooner:

  • Take an over-the-counter pain medication if you experience tenderness after Kybella.
  • Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications to relieve discomfort or inflammation because these may interfere with the healing process and make bruising more noticeable.
  • Sleep on your back with your head elevated for three to five days following your treatment.
  • Stay hydrated to support your body’s removal of destroyed cells.
  • Replace vigorous exercise like cardio, weightlifting, or jogging with low-impact workouts such as brisk walking for three days.

We will provide you with additional aftercare instructions to help maximize your results.
