KYBELLA® is the only FDA approved, injectable, non-invasive, treatment for contouring the fat below the chin. Some body types are more prone to the development of the “double-chin” look, regardless of diet and exercise practices. This extra pocket of hanging skin adds to the appearance of weight and age in the face.
With no downtime required, this procedure can be done in 20 minutes and have you back to your normal activities immediately. Many patients choose this procedure over traditional liposuction.
How does it work?
KYBELLA® permanently removes submental fat with the use of deoxycholic acid, the naturally occurring, fat-busting acid found in the body.
During the procedure, KYBELLA® will be injected into the skin of your neck/under the chin. Patients describe a mild discomfort which lessons with time. Over the counter pain medications are recommended for patients concerned about pain.
Most patients require 2-4 treatments for desired results, with treatment given in various increments. Your goals will be discussed to determine the proper course of action for your body type.
