Kybella Double Chin Treatment
What is Kybella?
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.”
News & Media
Our practice and doctors have been
featured on many popular news programs.
How Does Kybella Work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. This is how Kybella can improve the appearance of the "double chin."
How Many Treatments are Needed?
You and our expert injectors will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your provider will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
How is this Different from a Surgical Neck Lift?
This treatment involves only small injections into the problem area under the chin. There is no invasive surgery and minimal downtime.
How Long Does it Last?
Unlike other injectable treatments, the results of Kybella are permanent. When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.
