What is Kybella?
Kybella, it is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable for the permanent destruction of “submental fat” (the fat cells under your chin), as well as permanent reduction of bra fat in the front and back.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella has the active ingredient called deoxycholic acid. This molecule occurs naturally in our body and is used to break down fat.
By mimicking this molecule, Kybella destroys the cells in fat deposits.
How do you know if Kybella is right for you?
To be a candidate for Kybella, you have to be at least eighteen years old.Some patients do see sagging skin after Kybella reduces the fat cells, so you should speak with a licensed expert about your skin and specific situation.
Does fullness under your chin bother you? Do you have jowls or a double chin?
Then, Kybella is probably a good option for you.
What can you expect during treatment?
During your treatment, we will make multiple small injections of Kybella in the treatment area .
You can expect to feel some needle sticks and slight discomfort from these injections, but we will apply a topical numbing agent to minimize pain.
Is Kybella safe?
YES. Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment used to permanently dissolve fat. You get a more youthful look without surgery, anesthesia, or “downtime.” You may have some swelling, bruising, pain, and redness, but otherwise, you won’t experience any side effects. Both Kybella and the dissolved fat disappear via your lymphatic system .
Approximately how much is Kybella?
How much you pay for Kybella treatments depends on what you need.
The size of the area being treated determines the amount of fat cells that need to be dissolved. Two people might be the same size, but one has a bigger double chin. The number of vials needed for an effective treatment varies with each person. The average patient will need three to four vials per treatment and will require two to three treatments.
