Kybella® is an FDA-approved, prescription treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin, slimming and trimming the profile. Kybella® is used to eliminate the “double chins” that plague so many of us, dramatically improving facial appearance.
How does Kybella® Injection Work?
Kybella® is tailored to your unique chin profile. Dr. Barry will tailor a series of treatments for you base on how much fat is beneath your chin and your aesthetic goals. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.
What Can You Expect?
Prior to treatment an office staff member may take your photo to track your results over time. Your healthcare specialist may use cold packs or local anesthesia to help make you more comfortable. The injection process may take 15-20 minutes. After treatment you may be excited to see results right away. It is important to be patient. Allow your body time to process the fat cleared from the treatment area after each visit. Schedule your next appointment before you leave the office. To reach your aesthetic goals, it is important to stick to your healthcare specialists tailored plans.
