Kybella™

About Kybella™
While many injectables add volume to facial areas, Kybella™ is designed reduce volume by destroying fat cells, in turn eliminating the double chin. Kybella™ contains  deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of fat cells. Upon injection, Kybella™ breaks down fat cells in the chin area, which are then safely and painlessly absorbed by the body. The results of Kybella™ treatment are permanent, as the fat cells cannot return.

What to Expect from Kybella™
Most patients begin to notice a slight improvement in the appearance of the chin after the first or second session (approximately one month). However, it typically takes about three or four sessions (around the three-month mark) for patients to see the desired results. Depending on the amount of fat under the chin, it may take up to six sessions to see the desired results.
