FDA-approved KYBELLA® is the only injectable treatment to remove adult double chin fat cells. Kybella works by dissolving the fat pocket under the chin.
Our founder, Linda Behla, and our staff were first to be trained in the country. And she was among the first ten practitioners in the Bay Area to use Kybella for treating the submentum, or “double chin”.
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine containing deoxycholic acid, a molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. It is naturally occurring in the body and safe.
When injected into the area below the chin, the fat cells are destroyed rendering them incapable of future storage or accumulation of fat.
Once desired results have been achieved, there’s no need for continued treatments. Each session takes around twenty minutes and may not be scheduled more frequently than one per month. Most patients reach their desired result after two to four treatment sessions. No more than six total treatments may be administered.
80% of patients also noted a tightening of the skin, although KYBELLA® is not intended as a skin tightening treatment.
You and your practitioner will tailor a treatment plan to help you improve your chin profile. Please join us for a complimentary consultation.
