FDA-approved Kybella Injection 10mg/ml for Double Chin Reduction in Sykesville/Eldersburg Maryland

Trust the experienced and talented team at Vitality Aesthetics.

As we age, we notice that extra fullness beneath the chin develops, which is submental fullness or commonly referred to as a double chin. Suppose you have developed fullness or a double chin due to the accumulation of subcutaneous fats under your chin or around the neck as a result of age, lifestyle, or nutrition. Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how much we exercise, it is nearly impossible to eliminate or even improve this additional fullness. Nothing seems to work. If that’s the case for you, Vitality Aesthetics, a discrete, boutique medspa in Sykesville-Eldersburg, Maryland offers the first FDA-approved fat destroying injectable medication known as Kybella. The Kybella injection is deoxycholic acid or also called cholanoic acid. This is a substance that is naturally occurring in your body. It exists in your digestive system with the purpose of helping to digest fats.

Kybella injections efficiently and effectively destroy the fat cells beneath your chin resulting in a more contoured jawline and improved profile, which will make you feel more confident, happy, and satisfied both professionally and socially. Especially now with the proliferation of social media and virtual platforms. We take so many photos, selfies, and participate in virtual meetings now more than ever. After receiving a series of Kybella treatments, you can look and feel best about yourself with an immediate boost in your self-esteem.

At Vitality Aesthetics, we individually treat our patients and give them our undivided attention when formulating an aesthetic plan to achieve their goals, remove self-confidence barriers, and enable them to accomplish great things. Our aesthetic experts deliver patient-centered care and are recognized for their expertise in the field of aesthetic medicine.

What is Kybella?

Kybella treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical option to remove the submental fat or fat under the chin and is used aesthetically to trim and contour the area between the neck and face. This fat destroying agent was first approved in 2015 by the Food and Drug Administration for the use of killing fat cells when injected under the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is naturally present in your body and is synthetically produced to permanently destroy submental fat cells. Kybella is also known as cholanoic acid and also contains inactive ingredients – benzyl alcohol, dibasic sodium phosphate, sodium hydroxide, and water. While the use of Kybella has only been FDA approved for use under the chin, some providers also inject Kybella in other areas of the body. This is called off-label use. At Vitality Aesthetics, we adhere to FDA guidelines and inject Kybella in the approved area under the chin. We do not recommend injecting Kybella elsewhere because of the risks associated with doing so.

Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella Injections?

Kybella Injection LadyWe are our own worst critics and often focus on what we would like to change about ourselves. Meanwhile, our family and friends may not even think about our greatest insecurities. You are not alone. According to a survey conducted by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery,
over 67% of the people surveyed indicated they felt depressed and are bothered by their submental fullness. The survey was carried out in 2015, and the percentage of people who want to eliminate a double chin was the same as the percentage of people concerned about eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, and other aging signs.




You may be a candidate for Kybella injections if:

• You are seriously bothered by the presence of excess volume under your chin, making you self-conscious about your profile and socializing with others; or
• You have tried all means of reducing your double chin like diet and exercise, but this no matter
what you do, it doesn’t seem to away or even show an improvement – you may feel that you look older than your chronological age and heavier than actually are.

Kybella injections are best suitable for people who do not wish to undergo invasive, risky, and expensive surgery with significant downtime to reduce submental fat.

What to Expect Before a Kybella Treatment

The providers at Vitality Aesthetics are licensed, trained, experienced, and qualified to perform Kybella injections. We will conduct a consultation with you to make certain that you are not only a good candidate for Kybella injections but you understand the pre-treatment and post-treatment instructions to optimize your results. We will ask if you are pregnant or breast feeding, have any allergies, bleeding disorders, and difficulty swallowing, among other medical history, aesthetic treatment history, and current prescription and over-the-counter medication questions before performing the treatment. The number of treatments required will be predicted, which depends
on the amount of submental fat, your lifestyle, and goals.

What to Expect During the Treatment

The Kybella injection treatment is a relatively quick procedure, and you may resume your

activities of daily living after the procedure. Markings will be drawn on the treatment area approximately one centimeter apart. Your individualized treatment plan will be devised for the number of injections and the dose for each injection site will be calculated. We like to take a conservative approach to mitigate potential risks and complications. A topical anesthetic will be applied for your comfort prior to starting to inject Kybella. Your provider will inject the Kybella solution at each of the previously marked injection sites, according to the predetermined calculated dose under the chin area. Ice will be applied as necessary both during and after the procedure. The entire injection administration process takes about fifteen to twenty minutes.


How Does Kybella Work?

Deoxycholic acid is used to destroy the fat cells under the chin and make them unable to store
more fats. It functions to absorb and break down the fat cells and make them unable to
accumulate more dietary fats. Once the fat cells are destroyed, those fat cells do not return.
After your desired aesthetic goals are achieved, with a healthy lifestyle, you will no longer need
fat removal treatment to contour your chin and the area in proximity.

What to Expect After the Kybella Treatment

You can expect to have temporary swelling, redness, and fullness after the treatment that disappears within a week or so after the treatment. If symptoms persist, we encourage you to immediately contact us. Over the next few weeks, we will monitor your progress and ensure that swelling has subsided prior to conducting your next treatment, which may be at an interval of about four to five weeks after your prior treatment. You will see a more trim and contoured look of your face, chin, and neck with each treatment and the full outcome after completion of the number of treatments that are necessary for you, which is considered safe and effective.

Is Kybella a Better Option than Submental Liposuction?

Reducing submental fat with Kybella is a more suitable option for those seeking a minimally invasive, effective alternative to risky, invasive, expensive liposuction surgery with considerable downtime. The Kybella injection treatment minimizes the risk of bleeding, scarring, nerve injury, and other complications associated with liposuction, which comes with a prolonged recovery period.

How Do I Get Started?

Kybella manufacturers describe the recovery period as one month, and you will be able to see the noticeable results after the completion of treatment sessions.
