Kybella in Oakland, California

Oakland Kybella Treatments at Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics

Reduce Fat and Refine Your Look — Without Surgery

Eliminate your belly or double chin with this breakthrough treatment. Kybella is a non-invasive, FDA-approved injectable that reduces the appearance of fat under the chin with no surgery and minimal downtime. Sometimes due to weight gain, aging, or genetics, a double chin or "submental fullness" can be impossible to reduce or eliminate through diet and exercise. Kybella destroys these pockets of fat on a cellular level so that they can no longer store or further compile fat.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an innovative, non-invasive, FDA-approved injectable treatment which improves the appearance of fat beneath the chin without surgery. "Submental fullness" due to fat beneath the chin can be caused by genetics, weight gain, or aging. Diet and exercise may not reduce this fullness, but Kybella injected into the fat beneath the chin, destroys your fat cells. Once destroyed, these affected cells cannot store or accumulate fat any longer.

Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. Once the fat is destroyed, it is processed through our body’s natural metabolism.

Off-Label Uses of Kybella

Kybella is FDA-approved for treating unwanted fat deposits in the submental area. It can also be used for fat pockets in other areas of the body, including bra bulge, excess fat near the armpits, and other areas that are difficult to address with diet and exercise alone. These are referred to as "off-label" treatments, and if you are considering Kybella for areas other than the chin, you should be sure to visit a qualified Kybella professional.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella?

Because of the excellent biocompatibility and easy procedure, this treatment is a fantastic option for anyone who wants to refine their look. Kybella may be right for you if:

  • You want to reduce or eliminate fat under the chin, also known as "submental fullness," which makes you feel self-conscious or embarrassed
  • You feel that your submental fullness makes you look older or heavier than you really are
  • You want to avoid surgery or other invasive procedures
  • You haven't been able to eliminate submental fullness with diet and exercise

Kybella Consultation and Preparation

During your initial consultation, Dr. Vasanwala will assess the area and determine if you are a good candidate and how many treatments are recommended for optimal results. Then, together you will consider your options and craft a customized treatment plan that pursues your goals and takes your personality and lifestyle into consideration. Detailed preparation instructions will be provided.

Kybella Procedure

Excess Fat Just Disappears

During the procedure at Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics in Oakland Kybella patients can relax in our luxurious treatment rooms. The treatment area will be iced for about five minutes before the injections. After icing, the area is cleaned, marked, and treated. Dr. Vasanwala personally performs every Kybella treatment at Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics. She believes every patient deserves her undivided attention and expert care. The entire in-office procedure typically takes less than 15 minutes. You may experience some mild discomfort at the injection sites, but the procedure is entirely tolerable.

Kybella Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After your treatment, you may see some swelling, redness, or bruising for 2-3 days. OTC pain medications and icing will be recommended to lessen discomfort. These side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own. Results typically appear around six weeks, and the treated area will gradually show improvement for 2-3 months. The removed fat is permanently eliminated, but keep in mind that Kybella can't prevent new fat from being deposited. A balanced diet and healthy lifestyle are crucial to maintaining your desired results for as long as possible.

Kybella is a very safe option overall. However, there are a few very rare side effects, including swelling, bruising, nerve damage, and trouble swallowing.

Is Kybella permanent? How many Kybella sessions will I need?

The number of Kybella sessions will vary since everyone has a different chin profile. Dr. Vasanwala will help to determine the best treatment plan for your personal needs, but generally, 3-6 sessions performed one month apart is recommended.

Can I get Kybella injections while pregnant or breastfeeding?

As with most cosmetic medical treatments, it is best to wait until you are no longer pregnant or breastfeeding to receive Kybella treatment.

Will I need to modify how I sleep following the procedure?

It is best to sleep on your back with your head elevated for a few days after your appointment to further reduce the chances of swelling or discomfort.
