Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin also called "double chin". For many this is genetic and cannot be resolved with diet and exercise alone.
If you are bothered, unhappy, or self-conscious by submental fullness under the chin or you feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are, Kybella® may be the right non-surgical option for you.
How does Kybella® work?
The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. This treatment is administered by our specially trained medical providers. Treatment involves multiple small injections under your chin. The process takes 15-20 minutes. The average number of treatments is 2-3 given 6-8 weeks apart.
What are the most common side effects of Kybella®?
