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.

Many women desire plump, full lips with no wrinkles and smooth lines. When you have naturally thin lips or lips that have thinned out over time, it can be hard to get that look with makeup. That’s why Emerge Medical & Well Spa offers JuvedermⓇ Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC dermal fillers by the makers of BOTOXⓇ to help you achieve the lip look you want! In today’s blog, the aestheticians at Emerge Medical & Well Spa talk about the awesome benefits of using JuvedermⓇ dermal fillers for the best, most natural lip injection experience.

Comfort

JuvedermⓇ XC contains lidocaine for pain relief that gives the added benefit of comfort during and after treatment. This injection is virtually pain-free, gentle, and comfortable. This treatment is especially useful for people born with thin lips because over the course of a few treatments it allows the lips to gradually grow to the desired plumpness.

Lasting Results

This dermal filler lasts up to 12 months! That means you can rock your natural, soft lips for longer than other fillers. Not to mention JuvedermⓇ swells less than other fillers!

No Down Time

Often referred to as a “lunchtime” procedure, this treatment can be done in as little as 15 minutes, and most patients can resume their daily activities right away!  

Few Side Effects

As with any procedure or treatment, there is a possibility of side effects or allergic reactions. But with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, these side effects are extremely rare! If you are considering JuvedermⓇ fillers, make sure you talk to our medical professionals about any allergies or medications in your consultation to make sure you choose the perfect filler for you.

How to Care for Dermal Fillers

Aftercare for Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are one the best ways to combat the side-effects of aging. By replacing lost volume in the face, this cosmetic treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles, plumps out facial features, and restores a youthful appearance. You can experience the effects of the treatment for nearly 18 months, but you will need to follow an aftercare regimen to ensure the results last. At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we specialize in dermal fillers and other cosmetic treatments, such as BOTOX® and laser hair removal. After your treatment, be sure to follow our recommended aftercare advice.

Immediately After Treatment

Within an hour after treatment, you may experience some redness, bruising, swelling, and tenderness near the injection site. Though this may be uncomfortable, avoid massaging or itching the area. Touching the injection site may disturb dermal fillers and prevent them from properly setting. To reduce swelling and discomfort, you can always take Tylenol or another over-the-counter pain reliever. After a few days, bruising and swelling should reduce.

The Days Following Treatment

During the first few days after treatment, carefully follow your aftercare regimen to ensure you don’t experience any complications. Most importantly, avoid any activities that could lead to swelling, such as strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, and excessive heat. Avoid tanning beds, saunas, or hot tubs. During this time, you are free to wear makeup, sunscreen, and use facial lotion – just be sure to use a cleanser specially formulated for sensitive skin.

Long-Term Aftercare

To ensure the effects of your dermal fillers are long-lasting, you should follow some general aftercare instructions during the months following the injection. First, you should avoid excessive sun exposure. Most wrinkles, dark spots, and other signs of aging are caused by sun damage, so be sure to apply sunscreen generously. Sunscreens with an SPF of 45 or greater are highly recommended.

Secondly, you should utilize skincare products that strengthen your skin and reduce the appearance of aging. Products that contain Vitamin C can be incredibly effective. To determine which products are best for you, consult with the dermatologists at Emerge Medical & Well Spa.
