What is Kybella®?
The submental area underneath the chin is often difficult to target with diet and exercise alone. For men and women who are seeking a non-surgical option to this common cosmetic concern, Kybella® can help. A unique formulation of deoxycholic acid, Kybella® is the first treatment of its kind that restores more natural, normal-looking contours underneath the chin. Deoxycholic acid, found naturally in the body, aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fatty tissues of the chin, the deoxycholic solution of Kybella® permanently disables fat cells so they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
Kybella® has several benefits, including:
- Fast treatment sessions
- No tell-tale signs that you have had cosmetic treatment
- True fat reduction in the submental area without surgery or invasive procedures
- Permanent results
- No downtime
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients experience visible results between two and four treatments, but results may vary. During your consultation with Dr. Shibayama, we will evaluate your individual condition and help you determine whether Kybella® is right for you as well as what you can expect during treatment and how many sessions you may need in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As deoxycholic acid is typically easily recognized and processed by the body, this treatment typically has no major side effects aside from slight swelling, numbness, bruising, itching, or redness at injection sites. These mild side effects are temporary and typically subside in a few weeks. Dr. Shibayama will discuss all relevant safety information with you during your consultation.
Although Kybella® disables fat cells at the source, a healthy diet and exercise are the best ways to maintain your results and ensure that excess fat does not recur in this area.
