The active ingredient, deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the body. Administered through a series of injections, Kybella effectively reduces fat cells, preventing the storage or accumulation of fat. For this reason, Kybella is considered a permanent, non-surgical treatment option.*
IS KYBELLA RIGHT FOR ME?
Extraneous submental fat can be frustrating. If you’re bothered by fullness under your chin, schedule a consult to discuss your options. Minimally invasive and quick, Kybella is an excellent option for those looking to treat their double chin without surgery. We can also use Kybella to treat stubborn fat in the abdomen and around the bra line.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM KYBELLA?
Our medical professionals will work with you to design a customized treatment plan to improve the profile of your neck and chin. During your treatment, the esthetician will mark out the area being treated with injections. A numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable (most patients report only mild discomfort). Multiple injections with a small, fine needle will be made into the fatty tissues under the chin. If needles aren’t your thing don’t worry: the entire procedure only lasts a few minutes. You may experience warmth and swelling following your treatment, but it will fade.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE MY 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.* Treatment sessions are spaced at least 1 month apart. Don’t worry — the results are worth the wait.
