And for a limited time*, those who purchase 2 treatments receive a $400 instant rebate from Brilliant Distinctions – AND receive a THIRD treatment at no cost!
The aging process brings inevitable and unwelcome changes. Submental fat, or a double chin, is an example. According to an online survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, fat below the chin is one of the top five aesthetic concerns among cosmetically oriented patients.
The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. Kybella® is injected into the fat beneath the chin, destroying fat cells that can then no longer store or accumulate fat cells. Once a patient achieves the desired aesthetic goal, treatments are no longer required. Patients do not receive more than six treatments and almost half reached their cosmetic goal in less than six treatments.
Each treatment takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete, during which time the patient receives small injections under the chin. The exact number of injections received depends on the amount of fat located under the chin and the patient’s desired aesthetic goal. Treatment appointments are spaced approximately one month apart. Common symptoms after receiving treatment include temporary swelling, bruising or numbness under the chin.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH KYBELLA®
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
How is KYBELLA® administered?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
How many KYBELLA® treatment sessions will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
*Patients must receive their first treatment by August 30, 2017, and 2nd treatment by November 30, 2017.
Individual results may vary.
