Kybella Treatment at Merrillville Family Dental Care

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment option specifically designed to target and eliminate submental fullness, also known as the "double chin". At Merrillville Family Dental Care, under the expert guidance of Dr. Chanbo Sim, we offer Kybella treatments to help redefine your jawline without the need for invasive surgery.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body, to destroy fat cells. Once injected, Kybella targets the fat cells in the treatment area and breaks them down. Over time, these broken-down fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline.

The number of injections will depend on your specific treatment goals. While you may experience some minor discomfort, the procedure is quick and typically lasts around 15-20 minutes.

How Many Kybella Treatments Will I Need?

The number of Kybella treatments required varies for each individual. Some patients see desired results after 2-4 treatments, while others may need up to 6. Treatments are typically spaced one month apart. During your consultation at Merrillville Family Dental Care, Dr. Chanbo Sim will discuss your aesthetic goals and create a treatment plan that's tailored to your needs.

Are There Any Side Effects of Kybella?

As with any cosmetic procedure, there can be some side effects with Kybella. Common side effects include swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. However, these are usually temporary and resolve on their own. Dr. Sim will ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about your treatment.
