What is Kybella?
The Science Behind
Kybella® injectable treatments are derived from deoxycholic acid, which is located in the body and aids in the absorption and breakdown of fat. When injected into the fatty tissues of the chin with a fine needle, the purified deoxycholic acid formulation destroys fat cells and permanently disables them from storing or accumulating fat.
Kybella results in tighter, firmer contours underneath the chin and an improved facial profile. For patients who qualify for treatment, complications are rare. Bruising, swelling, redness, and tenderness are common at injection sites, but these typically go away after a few days.
Kybella is a minimally-invasive treatment that involves no extensive surgery, anesthetic, or recovery.
Quick injections into strategic points in the chin that are easy to fit into any busy schedule.
As deoxycholic acid is easily recognized by the body, this is a low-risk treatment that has a proven efficacy and safety.
Kybella is performed by our board certified dermatologist – Jessie Cheung, MD. Dr. Cheung will discuss how many sessions you may need during your consultation.
As part of a lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise, Kybella® can help reduce your double chin and achieve your weight loss goals.
