Kybella Injections

Are you concerned about the natural appearance of your profile or facial proportions? Does it feel like there is fullness or fat negatively impacting your appearance?

According to research by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), more than two-thirds of surveyed consumers are concerned about submental fullness, or a double chin. However, Kybella injections provide a non-surgical treatment method to help reduce this stubborn, difficult to treat fat! These injections contain acid that can break down fat cells in the area.

What Are Kybella Injections?

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved treatment option to offer a non-surgical, minimally invasive approach to reduce the appearance of a double chin. A double chin refers to the buildup of submental fat along the chin or jawline. However, it can be a difficult area to target and improve as submental fat generally cannot be eliminated with traditional means of diet and exercise.

What Is Kybella Used For?

  • Contouring the bulge under the chin caused by fat
  • Eliminating submental fullness caused by submental fat
  • Reducing a “double chin”

What Could I Expect from a Treatment Session?

Kybella injections are administered directly into areas of concern. The injections deliver the deoxycholic acid to the area. This acid begins to absorb and break down the fat in the area.

There is minimal discomfort associated with the process, but you may experience some pinching at the injection site. However, there is no significant discomfort or downtime, and you should be able to get right back to your daily activities!

Results achieved with Kybella injections in California will vary for each person. Results will gradually develop as the deoxycholic acid targets and destroy the fat cells. For the best results, a series of treatments may be recommended. Although your body cannot produce new fat cells, continuing to lead a healthy lifestyle may help preserve your results.

Could Kybella Be Right for Me?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment specifically formulated to eliminate submental fat. While it is effective in addressing the appearance of a double chin, it is important to keep in mind it does not offer any benefits for skin laxity or skin tightening.

We recommend a consultation with our professionals at either of our San Diego area offices to help determine if this injectable is right for you. They will evaluate the treatment area and discuss your goals and concerns to best work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.
