How Does Kybella® Eliminate Your Double Chin?
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 the 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 aesthetic goal.
It can be used when people have moderate to severe fatty collections under the chin that are bothersome. To determine if it is right for you, we must always do a cosmetic consultation first. At our clinic, cosmetic consultations are complimentary!
Typically results after Kybella® treatment appear within weeks to months, and keep improving as additional treatments are administered.
At Allureous LLC, we treat to endpoint results. It usually takes four to six treatment sessions, separated by six to eight weeks in order to achieve the best outcome. We don’t want our patients to have partial treatments, with their inherent sub-optimal results and be unhappy with their experience.
For example, you wouldn’t go to a plastic surgeon and ask for one breast to be augmented and have the other done later to save money. The same principle applies to Kybella®.
