Kybella® is used to treat patients to improve the appearance and profile of from moderate to severe fat below their chin (submental fat). Kybella™, which is identical to the deoxycholic acid produced by our bodies, helps absorb fats. Kybella is injected into the submental fat and works by physically destroying the fat cells. This is a nonsurgical option to treat “double chin” and fullness found under the chin in, with no general anesthesia required.
The results of this procedure are not seen immediately, as it delivers gradual results. However after reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected. Results are typically seen within two to four treatments.
The initial consultation will consist of an evaluation of the facial structure. Understanding the neck anatomy is very important as critical structures are in the area. Every patient is unique. That’s why we will create a customized treatment for you in order to ensure that you get the best results from this procedure.
Multiple injections will be used during this treatment but with minimal discomfort. The number of injections that one needs is dependent upon the issue . Treatments are typically spaced one month apart and take about 20 minutes. The number of treatments needed is dependent upon the severity and desired results. This will be discussed at the initial consultation.
For most patients, recovery time is minimal and most people can return to work and resume their normal physical activity within 24-48 hours of having the procedure. Kybella® is not for everyone especially if you have excess skin or a weak a chin. This procedure only works on the fat cells and will not tighten or lift the neck or face.
