Dissolve Neck Fat with Kybella


What is Kybella (Deoxycholic acid) injections?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a naturally-occuring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

What areas of the body can be treated?

Kybella is FDA-approved to treat submental fullness, sometimes referred to as "double chin". We also use it to treat small areas of the body with unwanted fat including the jowls, bra fat, inner thigh gap and fat upper pelvic area (FUPA).

Can you combine Kybella with other fat reducing procedures?

Yes. We frequently use our trusculpt fat reducing laser to treat a larger area of unwanted fat, then use Kybella to treat a much smaller area of residual fat. This is done to save the client money as Kybella becomes very expensive if treating an area that is over 2 by 2 inches.

Are the results of Kybella permanant?

Yes. Because the cells are destroyed, the results should be permanent as long as the person does not gain a significant amount of weight.

What is the procedure like?

A very small 30g, 0.5 inch needle will be used to inject Kybella in a grid pattern to dissolve the unwanted fat. The injections cause minimal discomfort, but there is a burning sensation after the Kyblla is injected that last about 1 minute. The injections only take a few minutes to complete.

How many sessions are required?

The average person requires 2 to 4 sessions spaced at least one month apart, with each session lasting about 10 minutes.

What are the results of Kybella?

Over 20 clinical studies have been conducted on Kybella worldwide. 79% of patients treated with Kybella reported satisfaction with their face and chin appearance. The results can take up to 12 weeks to see.

What are the most common adverse reactions to Kyblella?

Temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, nodules in the treatment are common after each session.  Tylenol, Ibuprofen and ice can help.

How much do Kybella injections cost?

The cost varies greatly depending on how many injections are required. For a woman with a moderate double chin, our average fee is about $750 per session. At Physical and Aesthetic Medicine, our fees are significantly lower than the national average.
