What is Kybella?
Kybella injections was introduced to Los Angeles as a FDA approved non-surgical treatment that specifically targets and eliminates stubborn fat permanently (submental fat) below the chin, also referred to as “double chin”. Double chin Fat can be caused by genetics, age, diet and other factors, with Kybella you’re able to target those fat cells without surgery. This quick and effective injection targets the submental fat to help improve the appearance of the chin area and reveal a more youthful sculptured jawline or chin.
How does Kybella Work?
Kybella contains an active ingredient called Deoxycholic Acid. Deoxycholic Acid is found naturally in our own bodies; making this treatment extremely safe. The purpose of this molecule is to aid the breakdown of fat and disrupts the cell membrane of the fat cells. Once the submental fullness is injected, fat cells are destroyed and are unable to store or accumulate fat.
How many Treatments are needed?
Based on your own needs, our injectable specialists will work with you to create your customized Kybella treatment regimen. Each session will be spaced apart by one month or more. Typically, 2-3 treatments are required, depending on the amount of fat in the area and your desired chin profile. Kybella causes the destruction of the fat cells. Once the aesthetic response is achieved results are permanent, re-treatment is not expected, as those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
