Treatment for Double Chin, Jowls and other small packets of body fat.
Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is the only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness (double chin). Kybella has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies involving more than 2,600 patients worldwide.
After being treated with Kybella, patients reported an improvement in their self-image including feeling happier and younger because of their new chin profile.
Overall, 79% of patients treated with Kybella reported satisfaction with the new appearance of their face, chin and neck.
The active ingredient in Kybella is a naturally-occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of body fat. Kybella is approved for persons of 18 years and older and it’s safety is well established. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and hardness around the treatment area. For detailed information on possible side-effects please refer to the Kybella website.
Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. The technique will require multiple injections into the fat under your chin. Up to six sessions may be administered on a monthly schedule. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. When the desired aesthetic result is achieved, a requirement for retreatment is not expected.
Bella Donna Medical Aesthetics is now offering Kybella treatment for patients with moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat). For more information or to schedule a Consultation, please phone or Contact us.
