Kybella is a safe, non-surgical technique used to contour the chin area, removing the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is used to treat the submental (double chin) area, thereby improving the appearance of the chin.
Excessive fullness in the lower chin and upper neck areas can cause an aging appearance or contribute to a full facial appearance. This may result in lack of confidence and self-esteem. Kybella offers a non-surgical technique to address these problems.
Kybella is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, which the body produces naturally to digest and absorb dietary fat. By injecting a precise dose of Kybella directly into the fat beneath the chin (submental area), the fat cells are broken down, removed by the body’s natural processes and eliminated permanently.
Kybella treatment requires no surgery or anesthesia, so you may proceed with the rest of your day as normal after your Kybella treatment. You may experience some swelling, bruising or redness on the day of your treatment, but typically these are mild and disappear quickly. The number of treatment sessions needed depends on your treatment goals and is specific to the individual. Prior to your Kybella treatment, you will undergo a consultation with the doctor to determine how much treatment is necessary to achieve your treatment goals. Each session lasts about 20 minutes and involves a series of small injections under the chin.
Because Kybella actually kills fat cells in the treated areas and your body disposes of them naturally, the treated cells are permanently eliminated. As a result, in most cases, the results are permanent and no further treatments are required after achieving the desired goals.
