Permanent fat reduction is now easier than ever to achieve with the first-ever injectable treatment, Kybella. This injection contains deoxycholic acid, which is a natural acid that is found inside of your stomach that breaks down fat cells. Kybella is the only non-surgical, minimally-invasive, injectable treatment option for submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Once administered, Kybella destroys the submental fat cells and they can no longer store fat in that area.
How does Kybella work?
Through a minimally invasive technique, our experts at Cosmetic specialists deliver Kybella into the lower neck. This treatment does not require any sedation, but to make our patient more comfortable, we offer the option of topical numbing. When Kybella is injected into the problem area, the solution begins to dissolve the unwanted fat in the treated area. Your body then begins to break down the fat using your natural metabolism processes and then the fat is cleared from the treated area. The injection only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Who is not suitable for Kybella injections?
- If you have no submental fat or too much fat. For candidates with a higher volume of fat, tumescent liposuction may be a better alternative.
- If you have a lot of loose skin (turkey neck) under the chin then double chin injections may not be effective.
- If you have an active infection in the desired treatment area, then you cannot have treatment.
