What is Kybella?
Kybella (Deoxycholic Acid) is the first FDA approved filler used to treat the submental fat (double chin) and tighten the skin in adults. Kybella destroys the fat cells that accumulate under the chin. The body then naturally eliminates the fat slowly over a few weeks. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
What does the treatment feel like?
The RN uses a template to mark the treatment area. The filler is distributed through a series of small injections. A topical anesthetic is applied and most people report little discomfort. Because there are no cuts or incisions, there is no down time so normal activities may be resumed.
Where does the fat go?
Deoxycholic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat destroyed by the treatments is processed through your body's natural metabolism.
Does it really work?
Yes, it does! Visible results can be seen within 30 days. Most dramatic results are visible after the final treatment - within 12 weeks. Final result is a great improvement in your profile appearance because the 'fat cells' in your submental (double chin) are permanently eliminated. Added bonus, the crepe skin around the area is also improved.
