What is KYBELLA?
Do you have just a bit of extra fat under your chin causing a "double chin" appearance? You are not alone. Many men and women have fatty pockets in the submental area (below the chin) due to aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations. Reduce your neck fat at Lincoln Park Aesthetics with KYBELLA. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for the reduction of submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid, which acts like the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat. As your body responds and breaks down the fat cells, you should see a noticeable difference. Once the fat is gone, the cells cannot regenerate so you can enjoy your new look. Make an appointment to go over the details of KYBELLA with our team today in Chicago, IL.
Am I a candidate for KYBELLA?
To be a candidate for KYBELLA injections, you need to be healthy and at a stable weight. You may have tried to lose weight to banish your chin fat, but diet and exercise have not worked in the past. You may also have unwanted fullness in the submental area because of genetics. While KYBELLA addresses the mild to moderate pockets of fat in the submental area, larger pockets of fat may require surgical liposuction. We will discuss realistic expectations in your consultation as to what KYBELLA can do for you. Men and women who would like to have KYBELLA injections with us should:
- Be at least 18 years old or older
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
- Be free of any active infection in or around the treatment site
We encourage you to be open about your medical history and health concerns with your injector. This way, we can determine if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction.
"Cannot say enough good things about this place and Julia! If you don’t know Julia, you better get to know her ASAP! I was interested in getting Botox so I made an appointment with Julia consult. Julia thoroughly explained everything and showed me exactly what to expect. Julia’s approach is too keep it conservative at first to achieve the look you are going for, especially for your first time and this made me feel so comfortable because I wanted a natural look. After my injection, Julia followed up with me to make sure I was satisfied and let me tell you, I AM MORE THAN SATISFIED! Julia is so accommodating, constantly fitting me in wherever she can. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and I will continue to travel out to LP to see Julia!"- S.B. / Yelp / Feb 24, 2021
"This is a long overdue review of LPA. From facials to laser - they are just wonderful. Every person on their staff has been incredibly helpful and kind. They are reliable, responsive and truly care about their patients. My most recent aesthetician Jenna is just about one of the nicest and professional people I’ve met in a long time.. After calling the office to see if I left my ski mask there, she actually walked down the sidewalk and crunched through a major snowfall outside of their office to help me find it. Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty. I highly recommend Lincoln Park Aesthetics. You’re in good hands!!"- R.G. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2021
"Julia Kocemba is my injector for LIFE. Julia immediately greeted me with a friendly smile and conversation that was never awkward. I have done Botox a handful of times at other establishments but never returned to an injector because I never felt they listened. Most aestheticians tell you what you "need" without an extensive conversation. Julia exercised scientific knowledge about anatomy and injectables that automatically made me feel comfortable. She asked me about my other experiences and centered the appointment around me. She is patient and professional. She also has the precision of a surgeon. She shared during our appointment that she is a plastic surgery Physician Assistant as well. Her confidence induced reassurance that my results would be beautiful. I truly can’t imagine trusting anyone else. Thank you Julia...for teaching me cosmetics doesn’t have to be a sales pitch. Lastly, she squeezed me in LAST minute after a cancellation on the same day i reached out! Book your appointment and ask for Julia. You won’t be disappointed. There are plenty of places to get Botox in the city, but I haven’t come across anyone that offers the experience Julia does."- R.S. / Yelp / Jan 29, 2021
"If you’re looking for a reliable, clean, professional med spa look no further! Lincoln Park Aesthetics is the place to go. The staff provides a warm and welcoming environment. They are always happy to answer any questions and demonstrate strong knowledge about the services they provide. I was hesitant to get Brazilian laser hair removal, scared it would hurt, but Jenna made it absolutely painless! I love my results and will continue to recommend this place to everyone! As soon as you step in you’ll know you’re in good hands!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I have never really been one to place great care on my skin, which was all fine and dandy in my early 20s, but having just scratched the surface into my 30s, I knew it was high-time to start investing in my skin. After seeing incredible results with Jordan from a laser hair removal Groupon last year, I decided to call upon her for my skin. My first appointment was such a great experience! Beforehand, I was feeling a little embarrassed about the lack of skin care in my past, but Jordan listened without judgement and made me feel so comfortable. I have always had dry skin and thought that buying products for "normal to dry skin" was the best thing for me, but after that first appointment, I walked away with a much better understanding that dry skin can mean sensitive skin, so the exfoliants I was using was actually making my skin worse. AH! I have only been seeing her a few short months, but I can already see such a difference. I didn't even realize how dull my skin was looking before meeting with Jordan. The dry, wrinkled-looking skin that I had just come to expect when looking in the mirror is starting to look smooth and shiny. Not to mention, when the pandemic has let up and allowed brief glimpses at a normal life, I haven't been wearing foundation while going out because the coloring of my skin is the most even it has ever been (take that, early-20s me!) I cannot recommend LPA enough and, in particular, I cannot recommend Jordan enough! If you want to look your best, it is 100% worth the investment."- A.J. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
Our Kybella Injection Technique
KYBELLA injections will be performed in one of our private treatment rooms at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. Our aesthetics team will tell you what they are doing every step of the way. If you want to be numbed for the injections, we can apply a topical anesthetic to the area once the skin is clean. KYBELLA injections take about 15 – 20 minutes of your time per session. You can expect multiple injections (made in a grid-like pattern) under your chin. Some patients may only need a single treatment to reach their chin fat reduction goal. Other patients may need multiple injections spaced three weeks apart at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. How your body responds to the treatment will determine how many sessions will be involved with your KYBELLA plan.
What to Expect
Unlike a surgical procedure, KYBELLA does not require anesthesia. We may numb the area for the multiple injections placed in your skin, but that is all that is required. You can leave our office as soon as you feel ready to resume your normal routine. You may experience temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising under your chin, but this should not last more than a couple of days. Call Lincoln Park Aesthetics right away if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, including facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not return, the remaining fat cells can become larger. You should maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatment for a tighter and slimmer neckline.
In your initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be created to meet your needs. Most often, patients have KYBELLA treatments in 2 – 4 sessions before achieving their goals. We will space out your appointments one month apart.
