Kybella in Phoenix, AZ

Double chins are some of the most aggravating signs of aging because the sagging skin and excess fat do not respond to diet and exercise. Now men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona can eliminate their double chins without surgery. Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, led by board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, offers Kybella®, an innovative injectable product that is FDA-approved for treating double chins.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is one of the newest injectable cosmetic treatments available, and many men and women are thrilled with what the product does for their appearances. No other injectable product has been able to address a double chin, so men and women either had to live with the embarrassment or undergo surgery. Kybella® is specifically formulated to dissolve fat under the chin and jowls to help you look younger.

Benefits of Kybella®

Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for eliminating the fat that causes a double chin. With Kybella®:

  • No incisions, surgery, downtime or recovery is needed
  • The active ingredient gradually reduces fat cells under the chin and jowls
  • Treatment takes less than one hour
  • The fat cells are permanently destroyed

What Can I Expect from Kybella®?

The secret behind Kybella® is a special acid that naturally occurs in the human digestive tract to process fat from your food. In the same way that the acid works in your intestines, Kybella® kills fat cells in the treatment area. As the cells are destroyed, your double chin slowly disappears.

How Kybella® Differ from Other Types of Injectable Fillers?

The primary difference between Kybella® and other injectables products is the treatment area. No other injectable product will work to eliminate a double chin. The only alternative treatment is surgery, such as liposuction or a neck lift.

Recovery from Kybella®

For mild to moderate double chins, Dr. Taghizadeh makes 12 to 20 injections in the fat, and two to three treatments are scheduled at four-week intervals. More severe double chins may require up to 50 injections and two to three treatments scheduled at three-week intervals. You may need two to three treatments at four-week intervals to see optimum results. Each treatment takes about 15 minutes, and you have now downtime or recovery. You may have some mild tenderness around the injection sites. In the weeks between treatments, you will notice the amount of fat slowly decreasing.

Where Can Kybella® Be Applied?

Kybella® is only approved by the FDA for treating the area under the chin and jawline that is affected by excess fat that causes double chins.

Will Everyone Benefit from Kybella®?

Clinical studies and practical experience have proven that Kybella® safely and effectively eliminates fat under the chin, but the product will not help with sagging skin. If Dr. Taghizadeh determines that the skin in the treatment area does not have adequate elasticity, he will recommend alternatives for addressing your double chin.

How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Phoenix?

Kybella® is an elective cosmetic treatment that is not covered by insurance. At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, we understand that this advanced, non-surgical option for treating a double chin is much more feasible for men and women than surgery, so we offer several payment options. You can pay for your Kybella® treatments with cash, check, major credit card or financing through Prosper™ Healthcare Lending and CareCredit™.

If you have a double chin, chances are that you consider surgery to be your only option. But now men and women who live in or near Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley or the surrounding communities of Arizona, can eliminate their double chins with Kybella® treatments at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC.
