What is Kybella and What Does it Treat?

Do you have excess fat below your chin that is making you feel less than your best?  Kybella can trim that extra chin fat for you!   Fat around the jawline can be challenging to reduce with diet and exercise, but Kybella can dissolve that stubborn fat.   But what is Kybella, and what does it treat? 

What Is Kybella And What Does It Treat

What Is Kybella And What Does It Treat?

Kybella is a revolutionary injectable treatment that reduces submental fullness     i. e. the buildup of fat below the chin, commonly referred to as a double chin.      Kybella is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fullness in adults 18 years and older. 

Genetics,  weight gain, and aging are the main factors that lead to submental fullness. 

Kybella is a formulation of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that is used to metabolize dietary fat. 

Kybella is a quick, painless in-office treatment that takes 15-20 minutes to complete, so it’s very convenient for patients with a busy lifestyle. 

How Kybella Works

A fine needle is used to inject Kybella into the subcutaneous fat below the chin.    Kybella works by breaking down the membrane of the fat cells so they can no longer store or accumulate fat.  The treated cells are then naturally removed by the body. 

Kybella is a completely non-surgical treatment, so no anesthesia is required, and there is no downtime. 

Up to 6 Kybella treatments may be needed to achieve maximum benefits.

When Will I See Results?

Results of Kybella are not immediate because it takes time for the treated fat cells to be removed from the body.  The chin gradually becomes slimmer and more sculpted over time, but final results can be seen about 4-6 weeks after treatment. 

Are you ready to get rid of that double chin?  Kybella can melt away that excess chin fat, and transform your profile.
