What is KYBELLA®?
Excess chin fat is something that even people who follow strict diet and exercise regimens struggle with. Often, the collection of excess fat in this area is caused by genetic factors beyond the affected individual’s control, making it particularly difficult to eliminate without cosmetic intervention.
If you’re looking for a simple, non-invasive treatment that can give you the slim and defined profile you’ve been searching for, look no further than KYBELLA®. This procedure is the first injectable treatment FDA-approved to address submental fullness and can bring patients beautiful, long-lasting results after a short series of treatment sessions.
How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® removes excess fat cells from the chin area using a chemical that naturally occurs in the human body called deoxycholic acid. In the body, deoxycholic acid speeds up the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When purified and formulated into KYBELLA®, it works in much the same way, breaking down the fat cells in the chin area and encouraging the body to reabsorb them. Over a series of 2-4 injection sessions, patients will gradually see these fat cells leave the body.
What are the Benefits of KYBELLA®?
- Minimally-invasive fat reduction
- Quick treatment times
- Significant improvements in submental fullness after 2-4 treatment sessions
- Minimal to no downtime or discomfort
- Safe for all skin types
Am I a Candidate for KYBELLA®?
Nearly any patient that is over the age of 18 and in good health is a potential candidate for KYBELLA® treatments. However, it is important for interested individuals to keep in mind that KYBELLA® is a fat reduction treatment, and cannot be used to correct loose skin in the neck area.
While this injectable works safely and effectively for most patients, Dr. Luis M. Rios takes the time to carefully examine each patient before administering treatment to ensure that KYBELLA® can help them reach their cosmetic goals. If Dr. Rios thinks another treatment or a combination of treatments might be better suited to a patient’s particular aesthetic goals, he will recommend these procedures during the initial consultation appointment.
