Goodbye to chin fat with Kybella

Kybella in Paradise Valley, Arizona

Our office in Paradise Valley is now offering a treatment for your double chin! Recently approved by the FDA, Kybella ™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, contours, and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as "double chin."

Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. It is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).

When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Click here to see before and after photos of Kybella injections.

What is Kybella made of?

Kybella is a solution containing deoxycholate. Deoxycholate is a natural chemical made by your body. It works in the intestine and helps to break down fats in your diet.

How does Kybella work?

Just as Kybella breaks down dietary fats, it also can break down unwanted fat under the skin. A small amount of Kybella is injected with a tiny needle into the area of concern (currently FDA approved for the fat under the chin). Within a few minutes, the local fat is destroyed just where the injection was done. Over the next few weeks and months the injured fat cells are removed permanently by normal body metabolism.

What are common side effects of Kybella?

Some common side effects of Kybella are swelling and inflammation of the treated area. Patients may also experience an aching or numb feeling, which is common for a few days to weeks after the treatment.

How long Will Kybella results last?

It is felt that results may very well be permanent, however long term studies have not been completed. It is generally true that once a fat cell is destroyed, it is not replaced.

Where is Kybella usually Injected?

Current FDA approval for Kybella injection is only for the double chin area. Studies are ongoing to determine other areas of the body that might benefit from fat reduction.
