Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment designed to eliminate submental fullness, commonly called a “double-chin”. It utilizes a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally found in our bodies that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The treatment involves a series of injections that target the fat cells under the chin, gradually destroying them and resulting in a more contoured appearance. The procedure has been known to be equally as effective in other pockets of unwanted fat such as the armpit, inner thighs, and more!
Before undergoing Kybella, you’ll have a consultation to assess your eligibility for the treatment. If you’re a suitable candidate, the procedure can typically be performed in a clinical setting without anesthesia.
During the treatment, a grid pattern may be marked on your chin to guide the injections accurately. Then small injections are administered directly into the fatty tissue. Each session usually takes 15-20 minutes, and the required treatments vary depending on your needs.
