What is Kybella?

Kybella is a substance created by scientists that replicas deoxycholic acid, which your body naturally generates, this substance helps to absorb unwanted fats. Kybella destroys fat cells at the injection point. It is used most commonly to help decrease the appearance of fat that hangs below the chin, also known as a double chin.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a distinctive treatment that offers a non-surgical solution to getting rid of the fat beneath your chin. Patients undergo six treatment sessions that span from about 15-20 minutes. Each session involves strategic and pinpoint injections into the jawline and chin area. In most cases, results can be seen between the 2nd and 4th treatments. Kybella is a permanent solution for double chin as long as the patient maintains a steady weight. Gaining significant weight can cause fat to return in the injection area.

What are the side effects?

The most common side effects that stem from the Kybella procedure includes bruising, numbness, redness, small swelling and hardness to the treatment area. If not cared for properly, nerve injury to the jaw can happen, causing an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness or difficulty swallowing. We provide patients with proper details about caring and resting after the procedure to assure that receive the fastest and safest recovery possible.

What are the immediate effects of the Kybella procedure?

Kybella can significantly reduce your double-chin while improving the appearance of the jawline and neck region. As mentioned before, after your 6 treatments the results of the kybella procedure are long lasting.  For all of your cosmetic surgical and non-surgical needs we have the team that can help you get the results you desire. The kybella procedure is the newest addition to our menu of services.
