What is it?
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved naturally occurring injectable, deoxycholic acid, for submental fullness. Kybella contours and improves the appearance of the double chin or turkey neck--however you affectionately refer to it. Once injected, Kybella causes the permanent destruction of the fat cells.
What’s all the hype?
Truly a game changer, many clients are preferring Kybella over a long considered neck lift. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat which means once you achieve your desired result it is permanent. Kybella is a non-invasive procedure that takes very little time in the office, usually 15-20 minutes. Kybella eliminates the fat beneath your chin leaving behind a much more defined and structured profile.
What is the recovery time?
Results are gradual and natural appearing. Immediately following the treatment you may experience a slight burning sensation and localized swelling. The swelling and “heavy feeling” will continue throughout the next few days. Most patients report any noticeable swelling was gone after the first 4-5 days. The process is continuing to work and blast away fat over the next 4 months.
What is the cost?
Treatment cost varies based on the patient and desired result. On average, most patients require 2 vials at each treatment for a series of 2-4 treatments. Treatments are usually 6 week apart. Kybella is $600 per vial.
