Essence Laser & Wellness is proud to announce that Dr. O’Rourke has been selected as one of the first physicians in Colorado to administer KYBELLA™.
What is KYBELLA™?
KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA approved prescription nonsurgical treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
How does KYBELLA™ work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
What exactly is submental fullness?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
Are there any side effects with KYBELLA™?
The most common side effects of KYBELLA™ are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area.
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment with KYBELLA™ is not expected.
How do I know if KYBELLA™ is right for me ?
If you are bothered by submental fullness or a double chin and would like to know if KYBELLA™ is right for you please call 720-583-1826 to schedule a complimentary consultation.
