Kybella® Maryland

If you’re bothered by the fullness* beneath your chin, you’re not alone.

Fortunately, KYBELLA® can help.

A double chin usually develops as a result of obesity or genetics. Getting rid of it yourself can be nearly an impossible task – working out and dieting rarely prove effective, especially for spot reduction in an area like the chin.

While surgical solutions are sometimes available, they often come with frustrating downtime and a risk of complications. If you are looking for an effective non-surgical way to get rid of a double chin, KYBELLA® is an ideal option.

What Is KYBELLA® and How Does It Work?

KYBELLA® is the trade name of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which has been used for several different purposes in medicine. This chemical is found naturally in the body, where it naturally dissolves dietary fats.

The synthetic deoxycholic acid in KYBELLA® dissolves excess fat in the submental region. These dissolved fat cells are filtered out of the body through natural processes.

Treatment with KYBELLA®

A treatment session is very short and begins with the administration of a local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, a number of precise injections of KYBELLA® will be made in the submental region.

Following your KYBELLA® treatment session, the body will start to gradually naturally filter out the destroyed fat cells. You will need to return for more sessions in order to ensure that your aesthetic goals are achieved. After two to four sessions, visible results can be seen.

A degree of swelling and bruising may be present in the treated areas for a short time as a result of the shots. These side effects are only temporary and will subside shortly.

Benefits of KYBELLA®

KYBELLA® offers quite a few benefits:

    • A Thinner and Younger Look: Removing a double chin makes patients look more youthful and in better shape.

    • Minimally Invasive: KYBELLA® treatment does not involve any incisions to your skin; instead, it only involves simple injections, making it a minimally invasive technique. This means you will not need to deal with weeks of frustrating downtime.

    • Little to No Side Effects: Because the treatment uses deoxycholic acid, which is naturally occurring in the human body, you are at a much lower risk of developing any side effects or allergic reactions.

  • Quick Treatment: Because the procedure is so quick, it will not interrupt your daily schedule. No downtime is typically required

    • Long-Lasting and Effective: While weight loss shrinks fat cells, KYBELLA® gets rid of these cells completely. Because of this, there is no chance that they can swell in size again. This makes KYBELLA® treatment a long-lasting and effective solution.

*KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental fullness) by physically destroying fat cells.
