Kybella, from the makers of Botox, is a new, injectable treatment for moderate to severe submental fullness that reduces the appearance of a double chin, improving the strength and symmetry of the facial profile and refreshing the overall appearance.
Kybella works by destroying cells under the chin with deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and aids with the breakdown and absorption of dietary cellulite. Once the cells under the chin have been destroyed, the area can no longer store weight, which means that unlike surgery and other treatments, periodic re-treatment is not necessary after the initial treatment plan is complete. 1-4 sessions are typically needed for best results.
In about 20-30 minutes with no surgery or downtime associated with this procedure, Kybella will melt fat cells reducing moderate to severe weight below the chin.
