How does Kybella work?
Kybella is an FDA approved injectable that is used to improve the appearance of the area below the chin. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that helps your body breakdown and absorb fat. It is injected in the fat below the chin and causes destruction of the fat cells in that area.
Who can benefit from Kybella?
If you have fat underneath your chin and you aren’t comfortable with surgery, Kybella can be an excellent alternative. If you are self-conscious about your double chin or looking for ways to improve your appearance, Kybella may be a good option for you.
What should you expect?
Kybella treatments are administered through injections into the target area. For best results, most patients come in for 2-4 treatments, although in some cases it could take up to six treatments. Dr. Behr can help you determine what is best for your goals.
Because the treatments are only minimally invasive, there is very little downtime required for recovery. There may be some swelling, bruising, or pain in the treated area, but it is usually minor and recovery is quite quick. In most cases the side effects are more mild after the first treatment.
If you’d like to improve your appearance, boost your confidence and look slimmer Kybella may be an excellent solution. It is especially helpful for those who aren’t comfortable with surgery.
Kybella offers a minimally invasive way to subtly enhance your appearance. If you’d like to learn more about Kybella, schedule a consultation with Dr. Behr.
