What is Kybella® and how does it work?
Kybella® is one of the newest and most exciting FDA-approved injectables in the field of preventative aging. It was developed to target and eliminate the infuriating neck fat responsible for “double-chins.” A double-chin can add years to one’s perceived age, as well as make a person appear heavier. This effect results in lowered self-esteem and feelings of frustration.
Kybella® was developed as a safe, non-surgical alternative to procedures like liposuction or neck lifts. The upper neck area below the jaw can be especially resistant to dieting and exercise. Yet, this simple cosmetic procedure can reverse fat deposits within a matter of days. With Kybella, patients need no incisions or general anesthesia, and recovery is immediate. A client can come to the office at lunchtime, and return to work for the afternoon.
The science of Kybella®:
The critical ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid. This is a fat-metabolizing agent that occurs naturally in the human body. When injected, the deoxycholic acid pierces the fat cell membrane, causing membrane death. The fat cells metabolize naturally after the procedure. This creates a more slender, sculpted profile with greater definition. Kybella®’s results are usually visible in 10-14 days. This treatment will continue to improve chin and neck contours for up to 6 months.

The Kybella® Procedure:
Kybella® works best when administered as a series of injections over the course of several months. The number of injections required will vary based on the amount of fat present. With each treatment, you will see dramatic improvements in the chin and neck profile.
Patients typically undergo 2-6 injections, with each appointment lasting approximately 20 minutes. As long as the client maintains a healthy diet and exercise routine, the changes are permanent.
