Say Goodbye to your Double Chin!
FDA approved non-surgical treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to enhance your profile. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid that 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, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goal.
What should I expect? - After your assessment our trained specialists will administer multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15-20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired goal.
When will I see results? – The number of treatment varies from patient to patient and their desired goals. Our trained specialists will help determine how many treatment sessions you may need to achieve your desired goal. Each Kybella treatment session is given 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
