KYBELLA®

kybellaKYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-human, non-animal derived version of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally  occurring material found in all of us that helps breakdown fat and absorb it.

What is Kybella used for?

Kybella permanently dissolves the fat in the submental “double chin” area to improve the overall contour of the lower face and jawline.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Depending on your facial anatomy and desires on average 2-4 treatments is necessary. The treatments are spaced approximately 6 weeks apart. The results are permanent after the desired outcome is attained. Up to six treatments may be necessary depending on the amount of excess fat under your chin.

What is the downtime after Kybella Injection?

You can return to work immediately after the procedure. There is mild swelling & discomfort in the area and ice is applied after the treatment. We recommend icing the area for a few hours after treatment. You may experience numbness or tingling in the area for up to several weeks after the treatment.

Does Kybella Injection hurt?

We apply a very strong numbing cream to the area before the treatment. The injections do cause a mild burning sensation in the area but with ice applied to the area it is quite tolerable.

How long does it take to see results after Kybella?

Your results depend on the amount of excess fat you have under your chin. Most patients begin to see results 3-4 weeks after treatment.
