KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
See a significant reduction in double chin fat without surgery. Recovery after a KYBELLA® treatment is much quicker and easier than after the alternative, liposuction.
For the best results, you should discuss a treatment schedule with the cosmetic experts at Trillium Creek Dermatology to maintain your new appearance.
