Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for fat reduction under the chin and is now available at our practice.

How Kybella Works
Kybella is made with compounds that destroy fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. Once the cells are destroyed, the body metabolizes the waste and the skin will start to shrink. Kybella is made with deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that helps break down fat cells.
We will administer a series of very small injections into the chin area. After a few days, the fat cells burst and the fat is absorbed by the body. Most people need between two to three treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, to eliminate a double chin. This procedure removes fat cells permanently and does not require touch up treatments.
Most patients start to see results a few weeks after their first treatment. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and redness from the injections but this typically subsides within a few days.
