What is Kybella®
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for eliminating submental fullness. It is made up of a naturally occurring molecule, deoxycholic acid, that causes the breakdown of dietary fat in the body. Using this injectable medication, patients 18 years and older can achieve a slimmer more youthful chin profile.
Who is a good candidate for Kybella®?
Overall healthy patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their double chin are often good candidates for this procedure. If you have any type of infection in the treatment area or are pregnant, you should not receive Kybella® injections.
How does Kybella® work?
When Kybella® is injected into the excess fat underneath the chin, fat cells are destroyed. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store fat. This means that patients require no further treatments once their cosmetic goal is reached.
Following your treatment, you can expect a slimmer, more youthful chin appearance. Some patients require multiple treatments to see optimal results. After your Kybella® treatment, you may experience bruising, swelling, redness and numbness around the treatment areas.
There is little to no downtime required, and results should become apparent within two to four treatments.
