Kybella is a prescription medication used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fat (fat below the chin). This is commonly known as the “double chin”. Kybell ais the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to enhance your profile.
How does it work?
Synthetic deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. It aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the submental fat, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a reduction in fullness under the chin. Once these fat cells are destroyed they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Once you reach your desired aesthetic goal no further treatment is expected.
How many treatments will I need?
Everyone’s chin profile is different. The number of treatments will vary from patient to patient. We will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment multiple small injections will be given under your chin. Treatments are spaced at least one month apart and it may require up to six treatments to reach your desired goal.
