Contour your chin, perfect your profile. KYBELLA® is the first filler of its kind that actually destroys fat cells! Administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, Kybella targets fat cells and produces gradual results.
What Does Kybella® Treat?
Are you self-conscious about a double chin? Do you wish you had a more contoured and defined jawline? KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin to restore symmetry, enhance your profile and restore your confidence! Whether you have a moderate amount of fullness, or a bit more, everyone’s chin profile is different, and our expert nurses will create a treatment to help you achieve your goals. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired look and facial profile.
The minimally invasive treatment is the ideal, non-surgical alternative to removing a double chin, and contouring a beautifully sculpted chin and jawline!
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Kybella®?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
How Does Kybella® Work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
What Can I Expect From My Treatment?
Before starting treatment, your treatment provider will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will customize your treatment for the amount of fat under the chin to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
How Many Kybella® Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
