Kybella is a 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”. Kybella is safe and effective, however, it is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18 or in use anywhere other than under the chin.
Kybella works with the active ingredient, 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, the destruction of fat cells occurs. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Our licenced expert injector, Julie Van Drunen, RN, will customize your 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 the injection of Kybella will be made into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart
