What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced naturally by the body, administered by injection for improvement of moderate to severe fullness associated with submental fat under the chin in adults, also called “double chin.” Kybella® is the first and only FDA approved non-surgical treatment for both men and women to reduce the appearance of a double chin.

The Kybella® treatments are minimally invasive. Kybella® is delivered to the area of fat under the chin through a series of specifically placed tiny injections. A pattern of injections is applied under the chin. The area may be iced and after a numbing agent may be added to aid in your comfort. These treatments offer fat reduction and the potential to transform and tighten the jowls and neck.

Kybella® is a customized treatment. Once evaluated in our office Dr. Strachan will design a treatment plan tailored just for you. Depending on the amount of fullness present and the results desired, the average patient with require 2-4 treatments to see significant results.

Kybella® treatments are scheduled about 4 weeks apart and the effects of Kybella® have shown to be permanent. Excessive weight gain post treatment may result in some reduction of the result.
