What is Kybella?
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.”
WHO IS KYBELLA® FOR?
KYBELLA® is for patients who have extra fat under their chin, which is a cosmetic issue that can’t always be addressed by simply losing weight. Stubborn fat is often resistant to traditional fat-reduction methods, and so affected patients might not have any other viable recourse than to receive KYBELLA® treatment for it.
Candidates should ideally be over 18 years old and be in good overall health. They should also have moderate to severe fat deposits under their chins. Patients who are planning on having additional facial surgery are not considered ideal candidates for this treatment.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
How many treatments do you need?
We will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, Dr. Reichner or a Registered Nurse will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
I love the place. It’s quiet and professional. Wendy is great….my skin looks better too. Also, Dr. Reichner did my breast implants and would refer him to anyone!
WHAT IS AFTERCARE LIKE?
After a KYBELLA® treatment session, patients do not need to experience downtime or recovery time. A treatment can come with certain minor side effects, including temporary swelling, redness, and numbness. These are expected to subside in one or two weeks and will not require further treatment.
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA® is not expected
HOW MUCH DOES KYBELLA® COST?
A KYBELLA® treatment’s final cost will depend on the extent of the chin fat. Additionally, this double-chin-reduction procedure’s overall price will be impacted by the number of treatment sessions required to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals.
