3 Reasons To Try KYBELLA® for Submental Fat

the doctor gives an injection into the woman's cheekbone. cosmetology Submental fat is excess fat and fullness underneath the chin, which can cause self-consciousness and insecurity. With KYBELLA® treatment from Dr. Vivian Bucay, you can reduce submental fat and increase your confidence.

KYBELLA® is FDA-approved to break down submental fat when injected below the chin in just a few treatments. Dr. Bucay is an expert injector of KYBELLA® and the first physician to provide this option to patients in San Antonio. Here are a few reasons why you should consider trying KYBELLA®.

How Does KYBELLA® Work?

KYBELLA® is composed of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in the body. When injected, it breaks down the walls surrounding fat cells, preventing them from storing fat. These are then flushed out through the lymphatic system.

Quick Results

The treatment lasts about 15 to 30 minutes, versus a procedure, which can take an hour or longer.

Fat deposits can take some time to break down, but you should begin seeing your results in three to four weeks. Plus, it only takes three to four treatments, spread about one month apart, to receive a lifetime of beautiful results.

No Surgery Needed

Since KYBELLA® is an injection, no surgery is needed, benefiting many patients apprehensive about undergoing a procedure and the subsequent downtime. Plus, no surgery means fewer risks and side effects.

Speaking of downtime, since it’s a minimally invasive injection, there is little to no downtime. This means you can return to work and your daily activities soon after your injections.

Increase Confidence

Possibly the best benefit of treatment with KYBELLA® is that you can increase your confidence. Many patients feel self-conscious about taking pictures of themselves and feel insecure when they look in the mirror due to submental fat. With KYBELLA®, you can achieve a more aesthetic, youthful appearance without undergoing any procedures.
