Kybella is permanent, non-surgical neck fat elimination.
If you’re looking for a non-surgical approach to enhance your chin’s appearance, you’ll find the solution with our Kybella treatment in Beverly Hills. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment to permanently eliminate fat below the chin (submental fat), better known as the “double chin.”
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
What does it do?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella permanently eliminates fat cells. Kybella is administered through a series of simple injections spaced about 6 weeks apart. Many patients notice considerable improvement after two treatment sessions.
Kybella has been approved by the FDA as a safe and highly effective treatment for submental fullness, better known as double chin. The efficacy and safety of Kybella has been extensively reviewed in over 20 clinical studies with more than 2600 patients. 80% of patients treated with Kybella reported satisfaction with appearance of their face and chin after treatment.
How does it differ from liposuction?
Although both remove unwanted fat from under the chin, Kybella and liposuction differ on several aspects: how the procedures are done, their associated side effects, as well as their observed recovery period.
Procedure: Kybella injections are a non-surgical procedures completed with no sedation or general anesthesia. Kybella is injected in the area under the chin, permanently eliminating fat cells. The entire procedure only takes about 30 minutes. On the other hand, liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing the fat with a small tube called a cannula, typically under mild sedation. The area under the chin is treated with a local anesthestic and the surgeon then removes the fat with the suction canulla. The procedure can take between 1-2 hours.
Side Effects: Kybella injections entail redness and swelling that is typically mild and easy to conceal. Similarly, liposuction’s side effects include some minor swelling and bruising. Sometimes, however, liposuction patients need to wear a chinstrap to promote healing.
Recovery: When you undergo liposuction, you will expect a recovery period of about three to seven days. With Kybella injections, you’ll need less time recover.
What to Expect
Kybella treatment is a non-invasive in office procedure that can be completed in less than an hour. Patients are treated with a topical anesthetic cream for about 20 minutes prior to their Kybella injections. Treatment with Kybella is done through a thin-needle injection similar to Botox and is typically without significant discomfort. Most patients can expect 2-4 days of downtime due to redness and swelling, which can be easily concealed with a thin scarf.
Results are visible approximately 4 weeks after your first treatment! You may require 2-3 treatments for optimal results. After the desired aesthetic response is achieved, your Kybella results will maintain themselves. You will not need any future Kybella treatments.
