Kybella®

Overview

Kybella® is the only injection available that can help you get rid of your ‘double chin.’ Until recently, liposuction in the face and neck was the only way to get rid of the excess skin and fat underneath our chin, which is very difficult to eliminate through exercise. Many people experience this fullness in their chin due to weight, age, or even genetics. This excess skin and fat near the chin can add years to the face and make you appear heavier than you actually are.

The Science

Kybella® is made from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule the body uses to help break down and absorb fat. Kybella® works by slowly dissolving fat cells, which the body then safely reabsorbs. The result is a smoother and more contoured chin. The fat cells destroyed by Kybella® are permanently eliminated and do not return. After you finish a series of Kybella® treatments, you will not need follow-up treatments to maintain results.

What to Expect

A Kybella® treatment takes less than 30 minutes. A series of up to 50 injections will be applied underneath the chin area. Most patients require between two and four treatments to achieve optimal results, but can begin to see improvement after just one treatment. There is no downtime associated with this procedure and patients can return to work or normal activities immediately. Pain associated with this treatment is minimal. Side effects are minimal and can include bruising, swelling, and redness.
