What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the first and only injectable procedure that is FDA-approved to help patients sculpt out a slimmer, leaner chin. This treatment has revolutionized the way that patients improve the appearance of submental fullness. Before Kybella®, patients had to undergo intensive, surgical procedures to get the results they wanted — now, they can get the same or similar results in just 3-6 short injection sessions.
How Does it Work?
Kybella® is so effective when it comes to eliminating fat in the chin area because it is made from a compound called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid can be found in the body, where it aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Deoxycholic acid works in much the same way it does in the body when injected into the chin, breaking down and eliminating the fat there. As these fat cells are flushed from the body, patients begin to notice their chins becoming more and more slim.
Because fat cells are physically destroyed during this process, Kybella® actually decreases the overall number of fat cells in the chin. This reduces the patient’s overall ability to regain fat there, ensuring that the results of their treatment last for years to come.
What is the Treatment Process Like?
While some patients can achieve visible results in as little as two treatment sessions, most have to undergo between three and six. Each injection session takes about 15 minutes to complete, and injections are administered by our expert Nurse Injector, Sylvia Halla. Following treatment, most patients go through a week long period of social downtime. During this time, patients can attend work and go normally about their daily routines, but may want to avoid important social situations because of the swelling and redness that commonly occur.
In the weeks following each treatment, patients begin to see their amount of chin fat slowly decrease until they’ve achieved their ideal, youthful profile.
