Would you like to permanently reduce your “double chin”? That’s why people use Kybella®.
Excess fat below the chin, also known as submental fat can be “melted” away by use of Kybella®.
Treatment only takes a few minutes. Commonly patients experience mild pain, swelling and little bruising. These side effects are temporary and resolve quickly. Kybella® is generally safer than liposuction or other more invasive surgery alternatives and you can continue your normal routine immediately after each treatment.
Kybella® is a synthetic preparation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-forming substance in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat under the chin, Kybella® promotes destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells are unable to store or accumulate fat, leading to a slimmer jawline. Safe and effective use of Kybella® for the treatment of subcutaneous fat outside the submental region has not been established and is not recommended. Kybella® is injected into the fat under the chin (no more than 50 injections or 10mL under the skin). Additional Kybella® injections are given 4 weeks or more apart. We will work with you to decide how many treatments are needed. Most patients receive between 2- 4 treatments to reach their desired outcome.
