Is Kybella Better Than Chin Liposuction?

Kybella For Neck ContouringDid you know submental fullness affects nearly 68 percent of Americans?

Excess chin fat happens for several reasons. One of the most obvious is weight gain; however, even individuals near their ideal weight can have a double chin.

Until now, liposuction was the only way to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is an FDA-approved product that melts the fat in your client’s neck to remove their double chin. It’s the latest trend in the medical aesthetics industry.

Since this double chin treatment is relatively pain-free and can be administered in 30 minutes or less, medical professionals are flocking to Kybella training courses so they can offer it to their clients.

Kybella For Neck Contouring

The idea behind Kybella is to provide contour to the neck. Often, a small amount of submental fat can make a person look older than they really are and even create an unhealthy appearance.

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. When administered into the fat deposits under the chin, the deoxycholic acid damages the fat cells that are permanently removed through the body’s lymphatic system.

So, how does Kybella stack up to lipo? Here are three benefits of Kybella procedures:

  • Kybella is non-invasive. Fat removal through Kybella requires a few treatment sessions that are quick, and clients can resume their day shortly after treatment. As a cosmetic injector, it is important to inform clients that they may experience some swelling, redness and bruising around the injection sites. Alternatively, lipo requires patients to plan a day off work and take it easy a few days following the procedure.
  • Kybella requires no downtime. Kybella for double chin removal is administered through a series of cosmetic injections that can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), clients will need a series of double chin injections with one visit per month for up to four months. Clients can expect to see results from neck contouring with Kybella in two to four treatment sessions.
  • Kybella may cost clients less. In 2017, the average cost of Kybella is $1,149, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Chin lipo can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 or up to $7,500 for laser liposuction. But don’t let the number fool you! Because a Kybella treatment takes between 15 and 20 minutes, you can see up to three patients in an hour and triple your hourly income!
