Kybella

Kybella is an injectable treatment that will destroy fat cells in the “double chin” area. Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. This molecule works to breakdown and then absorb fat cells. When injected into the double chin fat area, it permanently destroys fat and tightens the skin surrounding the treatment area.
Kybella was approved by the FDA in 2005 for the submental region. However, Kybella is used off-label for body contouring.

MOST COMMON AREAS OF TREATMENT:

• Double chin

• Other small pockets of fat on the body

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

Before treatment, the exact treatment area is mapped out and marked for safety and accuracy. An ice pack is applied to the treatment area prior to the injections to numb the area and help to reduce swelling. Then a series of injections are made into the treatment area. There may be slight burning sensation after each injection. The actual procedure takes less than 15 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

Following the procedure, there may be some bruising, swelling, numbness, and tenderness that will decrease over a few days. These symptoms may last a few weeks. It usually takes 2-4 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart for full results.
