What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment for submental fat, also known as a double chin. Submental fat is a rising cosmetic concern and many people feel self-conscious about their profile and overall appearance. Kybella is an effective treatment for submental fat. This injectable can be used to create optimal balance in both the face and the neck.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. When injections are administered under the chin, the product breaks down fat cells and prevents future fat storage. As submental fat begins to weaken, we are able to contour the neck so that the chin area is well-balanced with the rest of the face. Kybella may be combined with fillers to create the ultimate facial balance.
What can I expect during treatments?
During your Kybella treatment, one of our licensed medical providers will mark out the area(s) that will be treated with injections. A numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable and tolerable. Multiple injections with a small, fine needle will be made into the fatty tissues under the chin. The entire procedure only lasts a few minutes. You may experience warmth and swelling following your treatment, but it will eventually fade.
What can I expect from the results?
Everyone is different and the number of injections and treatments will depend on the extent of your submental fullness. For many patients, 3-5 treatment sessions are recommended to accomplish the desired results. Generally, we schedule treatments that are 6 weeks apart, so that time can reveal your results.
