What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a prescription medicine that destroys fat cells and is FDA approved to be injected into the excess fat under the chin. Kybella® can decrease the appearance of a double chin in adults as well as improve the chin profile. Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule produced by the body, is synthetically reproduced and is the active ingredient in Kybella®.
Am I A Good Candidate For Kybella®?
Patients who are uncomfortable with mild to moderate fullness under the chin are excellent candidates for Kybella®. If you suffer from severe fullness or loose skin on the neck, a Facelift may better suit your needs.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Injections of Kybella® to the excess fat under the skin can cause stinging and burning sensations which are eased by ice and over the counter pain relief. Swelling in the injection area is expected and is the result of destroyed fat cells.
Results After Kybella® Double Chin Reduction
Over the next 4 to 6 weeks after treatment, Kybella® will work to destroy the fat cells under the chin which the body will then absorb. For best results, we recommend that patients schedule additional treatment sessions one month apart. Visible results can be achieved with 2-4 treatments.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost depends on the size of the treatment area. Patients will receive a discount on the purchase of multiple treatment packages and the initial consultation is free.
