Destroy Fat Cells
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin for a gradually improved profile and more defined jaw, whether you have moderate or severe fullness. Synthetic deoxycholic acid, a molecule found naturally in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat, is the active ingredient in Kybella. Kybella destroys fat cells when injected beneath the chin, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness; once fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is unlikely.
You may experience swelling, bruising or numbness under your chin after your Kybella treatment. This is normal and will disappear after one to two weeks of treatment. The discomfort should be minimal. Our staff will give you post-treatment instructions. Most patients will notice results in 4 to 6 weeks, with gradual improvement lasting up to 4 months after Kybella treatment.
