If you are looking for nonsurgical treatment for extra dietary fat (like a double chin), KYBELLA® may be the perfect fit. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin, improving your profile and ridding you of your double chin.
What is Kybella?
Kybella injections mimic the body’s natural fat-absorption process, so you can skip the liposuction – but still enjoy the dramatic results. In addition to the chin area, Kybella has also shown to be an effective target treatment to reduce excess fat deposits in other areas of the body, including the bra line and knees.
Here are just a few of the many benefits that Kybella has to offer:
- An FDA-approved treatment
- No anesthesia or surgery required
- Fat cells are destroyed permanently
- Fast, efficient treatments
How Does Kybella Work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Is Kybella Right for Me?
If you’re frustrated by your double chin, whether it’s caused by weight gain, genetics, or your natural face shape, Kybella can help. It’s specifically designed to target the area under the chin, eliminating fat cells to give your face a noticeably slimmer shape.
In addition to reducing the appearance of the dreaded double chin, Kybella can be administered in other parts of the body that hold onto excess fat. For example, a Kybella treatment can help resolve the “kninkles,” or knee wrinkles, that can occur on the insides of the knees. If any loose skin remains, we can combine the treatment with skin tightening for a slim, trim appearance.
Or, you may want to consider Kybella treatments along your bra line as a non-surgical way to banish that bothersome “bulge” next to the armpits. Most of our guests with this very common complaint assume that they have limited options for eliminating this small but frustrating area of excess fat – but Kybella can help you finally say goodbye to that unwanted bra bulge.
What to Expect During the Kybella Treatment Process
During the treatment, you may be asked to hold some ice in the treatment area. A temporary grid tattoo will be placed on the area to tell the provider where to inject, as it needs to be spaced evenly for optimal results. After your treatment is complete, Kybella typically takes about 6-8 weeks to really kick in, requiring up to 3 months for some individuals. Multiple treatments may be necessary to reach your desired look.
Unlike surgical treatments or liposuction, Kybella is an out-patient procedure that requires minimal recovery time and no scarring. It’s not a no-downtime alternative to liposuction — there will be swelling and tenderness — but it is a nonsurgical alternative, which carries fewer severe risks.
