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.
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.
