What is KYBELLA™?  

Finally, an FDA approved injection to help say goodbye to your double chin! Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable to remove chin fat. Traditionally, chin fat, medically referred to as submental fullness, has been treated with liposuction. Kybella does what liposuction can do –  permanently remove chin fat  (double chin) – all without invasive surgery!

How does KYBELLA™ Work?

Kybella’s active component, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into fat, Kybella destroys fat cells under the skin. The body then removes the destroyed fat cells and eliminates them through the liver.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?                                                                                                     

A series of 3 or more treatments are recommended as each session removes more fat. Treatments are typically spaced one to two months apart. Complimentary consultations are available for this exciting new procedure.
