Kybella is a non-surgical injectable for reducing moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.” This is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that impacts a broad range of adults, including both women and men.
A double chin occurs because of several factors, such as aging, genetics and weight gain. The area is often resistant to diet and exercise. Having a double chin can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance – leading to an older and heavier look.
The Kybella injection, approved by the FDA, contains a naturally occurring molecule that melts the fat. It is identical to the deoxycholic acid that is produced in the body to helps the body absorb fats. Kybella is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into submental fat, the drug destroys fat cells occurring below the chin – with notable results that our patients appreciate.
