Kybella is the FDA-approved injectable treatment to eliminate submental fullness, that accumulation of excess fat beneath the chin, better known as the “double chin.” A game-changing breakthrough in facial cosmetic enhancements, Kybella is an injectable that destroys fat cells under the chin, while leaving surrounding cells untouched and intact. In the past, the only way to eradiate the dreaded double-chin was surgery or liposuction. Both are far riskier, painful and involve significant downtime. Whether your double chin is due to unwanted genetics or the result of weight gain or simple the process of aging, Kybella offers a safe and effective solution.
Kybella is made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body to help breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the targeted double chin area, Kybella destroys fat cells. The dead cells are then naturally flushed out of the body over time.
This a quick and easy office procedure that entails minimal pain and downtime. Injections are administered with an extremely fine needle into the submental area. A single treatment can entail as many as 50 injections and may be all that is required. In other cases, best results are achieved with multiple treatment sessions (up to six), scheduled at least a month apart. Each treatment takes only 15 to 20 minutes.
Absolutely. When fat cells are destroyed, they never reproduce. Therefore, once a patient reaches his or her desired aesthetic, additional treatments are never necessary. When a patient gains weight after have Kybella treatments, fat will still not accumulate under the chin. Kybella delivers striking results. Eliminating that pesky double chin transforms one’s overall face. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Kybella already has gained great popularity and unparalleled rave reviews after only hitting the market in the spring of 2015.
