Make Your Chin a Solo Act Again With Kybella®

Your face is the first feature people notice about you. Studies suggest your face is more important than your body in terms of attractiveness. Your neck gracefully holds up your face, which is why so many people strive to have an attractive, slim-looking neck. 

Do you look in the mirror only to notice a double-chin taking over? You’re not alone: One study reports that 67% of people are unhappy with the appearance of their neck. Having a double chin can make you appear heavier than you are and deplete your self-confidence. 

Get the chiseled profile you’ve been looking for with Kybella®, a minimally invasive injectable that permanently destroys pockets of fat under your chin. The aesthetics specialists at Dontage offer Kybella to patients living in Falls Church, Virginia, to help them get a more defined jawline.

What to expect with Kybella

Kybella is an FDA-approved procedure that injects a fat-destroying solution into the skin underneath your neck. Unlike some other fat-removing procedures, Kybella doesn’t involve incisions and requires minimal downtime.

During a Kybella treatment, Waseem Garbia, PA-C, first marks the injection sites on your neck with a skin-safe marker, and he applies a topical numbing cream to your face so you’re comfortable during the procedure. He then performs a series of injections on your neck with Kybella, which goes to work to destroy submental fat cells once and for all.

Does getting Kybella hurt?

Most patients tolerate the procedure very well and don’t describe it as painful; some say it’s temporarily uncomfortable. Waseem is an extremely skilled Kybella injector with over 15 years of experience. He’s praised for his gentle hand and thorough explanation of the procedure from start to finish.

Post-Kybella care and downtime

Kybella can be easily integrated into your schedule, no matter how busy you are. The procedure generally takes about 20 minutes and has little downtime. That means you can return to work or your everyday activities without anyone even knowing you had a procedure. However, Waseem advises patients to avoid exercise for 48 hours following treatment.

Swelling is a normal post-treatment side effect. You can cover any redness or swelling easily with makeup or a scarf, and it usually resolves within 3-7 days. If you experience discomfort, you can take a pain reliever such as acetaminophen (Tylenol).

Impressive results with Kybella

Kybella is one of the most popular procedures men and women seek at Dontage. That’s because it has impressive results. In one study, 82.4% of patients who received Kybella to treat submental fat were incredibly satisfied with their results. And one of the best parts about Kybella is that it’s safe and doesn’t carry the risks of going under the knife.

You deserve to love your appearance. If you’re unhappy with a double chin, Kybella can help make your chin a solo act again. Start treatment now and be camera-ready by summer. Schedule your Kybella appointment by calling 703-214-6834 or by booking online.
