Kybella® has become quite popular recently as a non-surgical treatment option for the removal of a double chin. Approved by the FDA in 2015, the product has caught on among those who have discovered that it is a good alternative to liposuction for such a notoriously difficult area to treat. A Kybella® treatment involves the injection of the product under your chin, leading to the destruction of fat cells using an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid. After the destruction of the fat cells, your body will naturally flush them out of your system over time.
Would Kybella® Make a Good Treatment Option for Me?
As with all treatments and procedures, it is best to visit our provider to make the determination if Kybella® is right for you. If you are currently at a healthy weight and your skin is not overly lax, you may make a good candidate for treatment. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results.
Does the Procedure Help with Sagging Neck Tissue?
Kybella® is only used for minimizing the appearance of fat found under the chin. The procedure is best for those who have good skin elasticity.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment?
Once we have determined that you would make a suitable candidate for the treatment, we can plan for your customized treatment. The treatment itself is performed in the comfort of our office. We skillfully inject the solution into the area underneath the chin.
What Should I Do After My Treatment?
