Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for destroying fat cells under the chin. Its active ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella produces a noticeable reduction in fullness.
Am I a candidate for Kybella?
People who are not overweight may still suffer from a double chin. You may be a candidate for Kybella if you eat well and exercise, but still have submental (under the chin) fullness. This treatment may be right for you if you are bothered by fat under the chin, believe it makes you look older or heavier than you are, but do not want to have surgery to correct it.
What can I expect with Kybella treatments in north Scottsdale?
At Summit Aesthetics, a Kybella treatment plan will be individually tailored to suit your needs, depending on the amount of fat under your chin and your aesthetic goals. Most patients need several treatment sessions, at least one month apart. In each treatment session, you will have multiple small injections under the chin. Each session takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
How long do results last with Kybella treatments?
Results appear gradually and are more dramatic after each Kybella treatment session. Kybella destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, they can no longer store and accumulate fat. You should not need any further Kybella injections to reduce fat under the chin after you reach your treatment goal.
