Kybella® Provider in Harrisburg
At Jatto Wellness Center in Harrisburg we offer Kybella®, the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin (submental fat). Kybella® is designed to help patients with moderate to severe submental fullness caused by a collection of large fat cells below the chin.
How does Kybella® work?
Kybella® destroys fat beneath the chin without the need for surgery. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® dissolves fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness in the area. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once the desired aesthetic goal is reached.
In addition to dissolving fat cells, Kybella® causes a controlled inflammatory response. This results in re-draping of the submental skin and takes care of potential laxity that causes a sagging neck.
What are Kybella® injectables made of?
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.
What can Kybella® treat?
Kybella® is specifically designed for the “stubborn,” “diet-resistant” fat beneath the chin. Generally, anyone unhappy with fullness or sagging skin in the chin area may be a candidate for a Kybella® treatment. It is not a weight-loss procedure, so patients considering it should not have an excess amount of fat in the area but should be seeking it for re-contouring purposes.
The fat targeted by Kybella® is often referred to as “stubborn” or “diet-resistant” fat because it can remain in the submental area even as a person sheds pounds elsewhere by exercising and eating healthy foods. Even people who are finding success with lifestyle changes may consider this treatment because oftentimes dieting shrinks fat cells but does not remove them from the body. For some, no matter how healthy their diet is or how regularly they work out, the fat under their chin won’t budge.
Kybella® is used primarily to remove excess fat underneath the chin; however, it can also be used to contour the lower jawline. Recently, this treatment has been used to contour other regions of the body including bra bulges, armpit fat and more.
How long do Kybella® treatments take?
One simple Kybella® treatment typically takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes and is performed in our Harrisburg office with local anesthesia to provide optimal comfort. Every one of our precision treatments is done in a way to ensure maximum patient safety and results.
When can results be expected after a Kybella® treatment?
Fat destruction, and the process of its subsequent removal, can take weeks and months, depending on a patient’s desired look. The number of injections you require depends on the volume of fat beneath your chin and the profile you are trying to achieve.
