YOU’RE OK WITH YOUR CHIN BUT NOT A DOUBLE ONE
Kybella is a prescription injectable that can gradually and non-surgically melt submental fat.
• Double chin
• Bra fat, off-label
• Small fat deposits elsewhere on body, off-label
Before FDA clearing, Kybella was under development during 9 years and tested in 20 clinical studies on more than 2500 patients. Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid. This acid is actually 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 a 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.
A dot-like grid is applied to the desired area and placed in such a way that it avoids the nerve coming up the side of your chin. The dots are a guide as to where the small injections should be placed. There can be some swelling and tenderness afterwards lasting for one to two weeks. Treatments are repeated every 2 to 3 months. The average patient requires 2 to 3 treatment sessions. Large double chins might benefit first from debulking with CoolSculpting before using Kybella for the finishing touch. Not everyone is a candidate, so please consult with us first.
