KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
KYBELLA® may be right for you if:
~ You are bothered (unhappy, self-consious, embarassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
~ You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
~ You don’t want to have surgery
~ You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
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 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.
Before starting treatment, Dr. Feinstein and his trained staff will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, Dr. Feinstein will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
HOW MANY KYBELLA® SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Dr. Feinstein will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart.
