Kybella

If you’re bothered by the fullness beneath your chin, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS): 67% of people are bothered by what healthcare providers call “submental fullness.” Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can impact a broad range of both male and female adults. Some possible causes are: genetics weight gain and aging. Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, the condition may not go away, and it could make you appear older or heavier than you actually are.  While surgery with chin liposuction can benefit some patients, we find that the vast majority are better served by the results available today with non surgcial treatment options.

KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin* by physically destroying fat cells.

How does it work?

•When injected into the area beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat

•The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat

•Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism

Individual results from procedures cannot be guaranteed, and may vary between patients.

How many treatments will I need?

We will help you determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.

How long is the procedure?

KYBELLA® is given during an in-office visit. The injection process may take15 to 20 minutes.

What is the downtime like?

For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment

How can I prepare for my treatment?

Prior to your treatment session, your healthcare provider may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.
