Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called “double chin”. It is an injectable that permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area.
Kybella requires a series of treatments individually tailored to your unique chin profile. The amount of treatments vary from patient to patient and is dependent on the amount of fullness beneath your chin and your aesthetic goals.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic Deoxycholic acid – a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down fat in the body. Fat cells are broken down each time Kybella is injected into the treatment area. Through time the fat cells are destroyed through the natural process of your body leaving you with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
Swelling is an expected reaction to treatment. When scheduling your treatment, consider planned social or work commitments.
