Reduce Double Chin with Kybella Treatments in our Dallas Aesthetics Clinic.
What is Kybella?
In April of 2015, the Food and Drug Administration approved a new injectable treatment called Kybella®.
Made by Allergan, the same company that provides Botox®, the first procedures using Kybella began in June of 2015. Kybella® is a manufactured product (deoxycholic acid) that’s identical to something produced naturally in the body that absorbs fat cells. Like Botox®, Kybella® is an injection procedure designed specifically for treating double chins.
Each patient responds differently, but in general, between four and six visits can be required, with 15-25 injections needed per treatment.
Kybella® is considered an effective alternative to Liposuction. Its primary advantage is that it’s a non-invasive procedure that only takes about fifteen minutes per treatment. It is not promoted as being more cost-effective than Liposuction because you cannot determine in advance how many treatments will be necessary to achieve the desired results.
More than 80% of people with double chins indicate they would be interested in a treatment that could help them look better.
If you are considering a procedure to lessen the noticeability of fat deposits under the chin and are concerned about options that are more invasive or that require more recovery time, Kybella® may be an approach to consider.
“I had my second session of Kybella to my neck. I can say the results are fantastic I am a total of 8 weeks after two sessions and can see some great definition to my neck area. We also used Sculptra to my jawline and chin to aid in contouring three weeks after. Both procedures were smooth and the pain level was so minimal. I would recommend it to any patient wanting facial contouring. Maintenance is key and they make it so comfortable with the setting and bedside manner . I will continue to come back. “
How many Treatments are Needed?
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions about KYBELLA®? You may find the answers here.
What is Submental Fullness?
Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics, or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.
What is Kybella?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How long will the results last?
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
Is Kybella right for me?
Only you and your doctor or skilled clinician can decide if KYBELLA® is right for you. If you’re bothered by fullness under your chin and wish to avoid surgery, ask your doctor about KYBELLA®.
It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area or in children under 18 years of age.
How many people have been treated with Kybella?
KYBELLA® has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies. More than 1600 people were treated with KYBELLA® in these studies and many more since.
