Kybella is a non-surgical treatment for both men and women looking to reduce fat under the chin or jowls.
1What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to destroy fat cells underneath the chin. This makes for a great alternative to liposuction or a chin lift. Fat accumulation under the chin or a "Double Chin" can be the result of aging, weight gain, or even genetics and is often resistant to diet and exercise.
2How does it Work?
Kybella® is an injectable solution that includes a molecule, deoxycholic acid, that is found naturally in the body. It is responsible for breaking down fat cells when injected into the body. When injected into the chin it begins to destroy fat, improving your facial profile. Once the fat cells are destroyed they are no longer able to accumulate fat, which means that further treatment is not required once you achieve your optimal result. Typical treatment time takes about 15 to 20 minutes per session.
3When will I see results?
Results are not immediate as you will see improvement over time after the treatment. You should begin to see improvements over the course of a few weeks. Minor discomfort, bruising and some swelling can occur after the treatment but they typically subside within a few days.
