Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
How Kybella Works
Kybella’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and elimination of dietary fat. When injected into the fat layer beneath the chin, Kybella causes the fat cells to die. Once these fat cells are naturally removed by the body, they are gone for good.
Most patients experience visible contouring and improvement in the shape of their jawline and chin profile within three to six treatment sessions.
The area will be swollen for 3-4 days after treatments.
There is a risk of developing a bruise.
The submentum (double chin) will have the most significant and noticeable swelling.
For most patients, recovery time from swelling and bruising commonly lasts several days with the first treatment, but the severity of side effects typically decreases with subsequent Kybella treatments.
How many treatments do I need?
Re-treatment of the same area is repeated every 2 months.
Most patients require 3-6 treatments
When will I see full results?
Full benefit of the treatment is appreciated 4-6 weeks after the last in a series (3+) of treatments
I cannot express how grateful I am to this place. I have had 1 visit and I can’t wait for my next. Everyone was so nice and actually took the time to listen to me and make sure I understood everything before I left. I have had 3 horrible derm experiences with 3 different places but SkinDC and Jacqueline showed me how doctors are truly supposed to treat patients. I hope/know they will continue this great work and communication and making me feel more confident in my skin.
