Benefits of Using Kybella to Get Rid of Your Double Chin

Woman holding her face and smilingSubmental fullness, or “double chin,” can be the result of genetics, aging, or even weight gain. If you are someone who is bothered by submental fullness and you don’t want to pay for plastic surgery, the Kybella treatment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa can be right for you! So, what exactly is Kybella? And what are the benefits? Read on to learn more. 

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injection made of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected directly into the unwanted fat under the chin, it destroys those fat cells and reduces fullness for a more youthful appearance. 

This being said, Kybella has a number of added benefits that make it not only a great alternative to surgery but a great stand-alone option for getting rid of unwanted submental fullness! Here are the benefits you can expect from this injection.

No Surgery

One of the more obvious benefits of Kybella is that you do not have to go under the knife or anesthesia like you would with plastic surgery! Kybella involves a series of small injections under the chin with minimal downtime for lasting results.

It’s Permanent

Unlike other cosmetic injections, the results of Kybella are meant to be permanent. This injection permanently destroys fat cells, and once they are gone they can no longer store or accumulate fat! 

It’s Fast and Easy

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, the Kybella injection procedure involves a brief series of injections that last only about 20 minutes. The number of injections you receive depends on the results you desire, there is little to no downtime, and there are typically little to no side effects.

Kybella, huh? Emerge Medical & Well Spa Explains

Written By: Ric Harrison

Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way first:

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if Kybella is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.

I’ve had Kybella injections at Emerge Medical & Well Spa and I am glad I did. I have inherited a lot of good genes from my ancestors but I also inherited a few that I wasn’t so keen on. The older I got, the worse my double got and I was frustrated. There wasn’t anything I could about it outside of liposuction or plastic surgery, until recently. I had researched and had spoken with a couple of surgeons about my options and cost. I just couldn’t do it, the cost and the down time were not in my budget. I wasn’t willing to spend the money for plastic surgery and I also didn’t want to spend an entire vacation recuperating. My vacations are for traveling and having fun.

Just when I thought I’d never get rid of the double chin, I began hearing about a new treatment for the dreaded double chin at Emerge Medical & Well Spa – it was Kybella. I started doing some research about Kybella, the results, and the cost, and I was sold.

I must admit that I had tried one other treatment before finding out about Kybella, Ultherapy. Ultherapy didn’t give me the results I wanted or expected but Kybella has done just the opposite. It’s AFFORDABLE and IT WORKS (for most anyway). After my 1st treatment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, the side effects I experienced with Kybella were some swelling and bruising. However, on my 2nd treatment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, I still experienced some swelling but very little bruising. Of course, everyone’s side effects may not be the same. And the good news, it’s easy to hide swelling and/or bruising with a scarf or turtleneck. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt (much)!

Meet Ric

Written by: Ric Harrison

We’d like you to meet Ric, he’s a very close friend of ours that has agreed to share his journey through injectabes with all of you. Take it away, Ric.

Why I chose Emerge Medical and Well Spa.

Hi, my name is Ric. I’m in my early 50’s. I’m married and I’m Poppy to 3 precious boys ages 2, 4, & 6. I’m a professional in the medical field and I consider myself a happy person. The only thing I didn’t like was that I was aging and it showed.

I didn’t like those little lines around my eyes, the lines on my forehead, and the fat under my chin. These are just a couple of reasons I started considering injectables. In the last several years I had some Botox treatments (not on a regular basis) but I liked the results. I knew a little bit, but not enough. I had considered plastic surgery but didn’t like the cost, the risk or the downtime.

I decided to make appointments with a couple of different spas/treatment facilities in the area for interviews that offer the treatments I was considering. I chose Emerge Medical and Well Spa because they gave the best first impression and they appeared to be the most knowledgeable about what they were doing. I like the fact that the people doing the treatments were experienced and educated and I also liked the fact that they told me about the products, how they were made and what I could expect. They didn’t “promise” me that I would look 10 years younger or get the exact results I wanted but they did say they would work with me, to help me get to the best results I could with what I had to work with.  I haven’t been disappointed yet. I have not only become a happy client but I’ve made new friends.

The ladies that have done my facials, my lash extensions, given me Botox, Kybella, Juvederm have become a part of my life. I didn’t realize the vulnerability I would experience while receiving these services. We’ve talked about life, death, kids and just about anything else that came up. We’ve laughed and I’ve even cried as I told the story of my mothers’ recent death.

When I became a client at Emerge I expected (and received) excellent services and results, but what I also received was the unexpected surprise of more inner beauty and that is priceless.
