Perhaps one of the most flattering facial features liked by many is the appearance of a chiseled jawline and a well-defined chin. The appearance of under chin bulging or a “double chin” is something that used to be treated by more invasive, surgical means until Kybella was introduced in the medical aesthetic industry.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a FDA approved injectable that is designed to help destroy fat cells under the chin. Kybella is injected under the chin dissolving the fat permanently leaving the face with less bulging and a more defined jawline.
How Many Kybella Treatments Will I need?
During your initial consultation with our Sanctuaire MD staff, a facial analysis and a full assessment will be completed to determine the dose and number of treatments needed. Patients typically receive the minimum necessary number of treatments. Some individuals may need a total of six treatments, but on average, patients see visible results in just two to four treatments spaced one month apart.
Is Kybella Right for Me?
Kybella is good for patients who are otherwise healthy and who feel like their double chin makes them look older or heavier set than they actually are.
How Does Kybella Work?
The main ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid which works to naturally breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella works to destroy the fat cells and give patients a noticeably thinner profile.
How Many People Have Been Treated With Kybella?
Kybella has been the central focus in over 20 clinical studies in which more than 1600 people were treated.
How Long Does Kybella Last For?
One of the many benefits of Kybella, is that because it works to actually destroy existing fat cells, results should be permanent and no further treatment may be necessary for maintenance.
Is Kybella Expensive?
The cost of Kybella is $700 per vial. Two vials are typically used in a single treatment.
What Are The Side Effects of Kybella?
The most common side effects of Kybella are temporary swelling, pain, numbness, bruising, redness, and hardness around the treatment site which should go away after a few weeks.
