Kybella is the first and only FDA approved solution to contour the appearance of submental fullness under the chin (double chin). You don’t need to be overweight to form it, and there are many factors that generate extra fat in this area such as genetics or aging. American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) in 2015 conducted a study where they found that 67% of people were really bothered about the fat beneath their chin.
Kybella is a minimally invasive solution to treat severe fullness beneath the chin. Kybella solution consists of synthetic deoxycholic acid. This acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that is responsible for braking down fat. Injected into fatty tissue beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
Kybella $599 per 2 ml vial
Patients typically require 2-4 procedures to reach optimal results. Up to 10 mL may be injected in a single treatment, but dosing depends on the patient’s submental fat distribution and personal goals. Kybella injections can be given every 4-8 weeks.
Usually this procedure takes 15-20 minutes. Possible side effects include: swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and some hardness in the treatment area.
Most patients notice visible improvement after one treatment. The results of Kybella are long lasting because fat cells are permanently destroyed during treatment and will not regenerate again if patient will maintain a healthy weight.
