Kybella® is a non-invasive injectable treatment to reduce fat under the chin, commonly referred to as a double chin. The treatment session takes less than 30 min, and the injections themselves takes less than a few minutes.
Kybella® is a deoxycholic acid that is naturally occurring in the body to breakdown dietary fat. The makers of Kybella® have synthesized this molecule and when injected below the skin it destroys fat cells and results in a noticeable reduction in fullness. Once destroyed, these cells no longer store or accumulate fat, resulting in a permanent solution, similar to liposuction results.
You may need several Kybella® treatments to achieve your desired results. Treatments are at least 1 month apart and many people have between 2-6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments. It generally takes between 4-6 weeks after a treatment session to see the results from the treatment.
While Kybella® is non-invasive, you can experience swelling, numbness, redness, and hardness in the area, that resolves over time. During your consult one of our providers will discuss with you other possible side effects.
As with all cosmetic procedures it is best to consult with one of our providers on your specific concerns so that you receive the best treatment, or combination of treatments, for you. The cost of Botox® depends on a number of factors, including how much is used and will be discussed with you during your consult.
