What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-Approved injectable for adults that improves the appearance your profile by destroying fat cells beneath the chin, your so-called double chin.
Is KYBELLA® right for me?
How KYBELLA works
The active ingredient in KYBELLA®is synthetic deoxycholic acid, 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.
Chin fullness, otherwise known as “double chin” is experienced by some adults and may be unwanted. At Florida Aesthetics and Medical Weight Loss, we recognize this. We offer Kybella – the only FDA-approved prescription medicine that targets and destroys fat cells in submental fat, resulting in an improved profile.
Kybella contains a naturally-occurring molecule in the body which helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. Injecting it into the fat under the chin leads to the destruction of fat cells, thus reducing the appearance of chin fullness. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store fat.
Kybella injections may be the right treatment for you, if chin fullness makes you uncomfortable or makes you feel older or heavier than you actually are. It is worth considering if you continue to have a double chin despite eating well and exercising. Repeating treatment is thus not necessary once you’ve reached your aesthetic goal.
Contraindications for receiving Kybella include infection in chin area, cosmetic treatments or medical conditions in neck area or near, trouble swallowing or bleeding problems, as well as pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The number of treatments needed depends on your individual situation and needs. Our board-certified injectors will talk to you about your concerns and determine what will work best for you.
