Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. We launched it a few months ago and our patients are just starting to see the results. The photograph here is before and after a single treatment with Kybella. Further improvement is expected with more treatments. Most people require a series of two to four Kybella treatments, but some require up to six Kybella treatments.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. This is an acid produced in the liver and excreted in the bile. It is used to digest the fat from the foods we eat. When injected into the skin Kybella dissolves the fat and it is naturally eliminated by the body over time.
What happens after a Kybella treatment?
As the fat is eliminated by the body the double chin disappears. Patients also enjoy better jawline definition. We lose this definition for a number of reasons: health, weight, age, or genetics. Now with Kybella you don't have to look old or overweight and you won't be as self-conscious.
How long do the results of a Kybella treatment last?
The best thing about Kybella is that no additional treatments are necessary after your initial series of treatments. Unlike Botox or fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, or Radiesse, maintenance treatments are not needed with Kybella.
Now you can live chin up like the new spokesperson Khloe Kardashian.
