Some of our patients find that regardless of their diet and exercise regime, they’re unable to lose the pad of fat under their chin, around their bra straps, and in a few other stubborn pockets. If you’re seeing a “double chin” in your photos and you’re ready for a change, Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin. Kybella’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a natural aid in the breakdown of and absorption of dietary fat in our body. After multiple treatments of Kybella®, the fat cells are destroyed and can no longer store fat. This procedure is a permanent treatment after you’ve achieved your desired appearance.
“My goal is to leave my patient feeling better about themselves. That what they see and feel is more like what they felt years ago. It’s truly amazing how something as simple as reducing the chin fullness and restoring a more defined jawline gives the face a more youthful look.” says Gina, founder of Divine, A Boutique MedSpa.
If submental fullness is a problem area for you, considering Kybella® as a treatment could be among your best options. Restore the confidence you once felt when you look in the mirror by returning to the profile you love.
Kybella® treatments are ideal for patients looking to permanently reduce the appearance of small pockets with a nonsurgical procedure.
Because after injection your fat cells will no longer be able to store or accumulate fat, this treatment is permanent once we’ve achieved your desired results.
It can take 2-3 treatments spaced no less than 6 weeks apart to see desired results. Though the process may take several months, patients will see improvement throughout the course of treatment.
Kybella is approved by the FDA for treating submental fat.
You will experience swelling at the injection site for 2-3 days. Your swelling will return to baseline within a week’s time. You’ll begin to notice an improvement in fat reduction around week 3-5 after each injection.
