KYBELLA ® is an FDA approved, prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

BOTOX and DYSPORT
BOTOX® and DYSPORT are neurotoxins. They work beneath the surface and temporarily minimizes the underlying muscle activity that causes unwanted lines and wrinkles to help the skin look visibly smoother. Many factors contribute to unwanted facial lines, such as inevitable aging, the reduction of collagen production and sun damage. However, eliminating repeated muscle contractions caused by facial expressions is imperative when looking to achieve a more youthful appearance. Results may become visible between 24 and 48 hours and may last longer than 4 months. Like any cosmetic treatment, results vary from patient to patient though so we will customize your treatment program based on your results and aesthetic goals.

How does KYBELLA® work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How long will results last?
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
