    Improving your profile with KYBELLA®

    By: | Tags: , , , , , | Comments: 0 | June 7th, 2017


    The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is 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.

    Is KYBELLA™ for you?

    Over 68% of people said they are bothered by submental fullness or double chin according to a 2014 America Society for Dermatologic Surgery. Like many people, no matter how much you exercise the condition may not go away making you look older and heavier than you actually are.

    KYBELLA™ might be right for you if

    • You’re bothered by submental fullness or double chin
    • Surgery is not an option
    • You feel you look older and heavier than you actually are
    • You eat well and exercise but submental fullness does not go away.

    How does the KYBELLA™ treatment work?

    KYBELLA™ is a quick 10-15 minute office treatment. Dr. Tess will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session. You and Dr. Tess will customize a KYBELLA™ treatment plan based on your treatment goals and his expertise.

    How many KYBELLA™ treatments do you need?

    Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve desired results.

    How long does KYBELLA™ last?

    Once the proper correction is achieved, the treated fat cells are gone forever. In most cases, no additional treatment is needed.
