Kybella

Melts fat under the chin.

Kybella is a deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.  It is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called "double chin".   It destroys fat cells.  Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.  Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body's natural metabolism

The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes.  You will be given a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.  For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session.  You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but are likely to have swelling and bruising.  Prior to your treatment session you will be given ice packs and topical local anesthesia to make you more comfortable.

Based on the amount and distribution of your chin fat and your personal treatment goals, up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.
