Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat (often referred to as a “double chin”).
A double chin can be the result of genetics, weight gain or aging and is generally resistant to diet and exercise. Now you can lose the double chin with Kybella, a non-surgical injectable treatment performed in our med spa.
Kybella contains a non-human, non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, the deoxycholic acid breaks down the unwanted fat. Once those fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer continue to accumulate or store fat—they are removed permanently.
Administered by our expert providers using injections into the fat under the chin, each in-office treatment session typically takes 15-20 minutes. Many patients experience visible results with two to four treatments spaced at least one month apart. Up to a total of six Kybella treatments may be administered. For most patients, downtime following a treatment session with Kybella is minimal.
Once the desired aesthetic outcome from Kybella treatment has been achieved, the need for Kybella re-treatment is not expected, as Kybella causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Kybella treatment costs vary based on each individual’s treatment needs.
