KYBELLA™ is a new prescription injectable approved by the FDA that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also known as “double chin.” It is the first ever non-evasive treatment option for removing double chin fat.
The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Dr. Behr is one of the first physicians in the Central Valley to become a certified Kybella trainer.
The best candidate for Kybella™ is anyone bothered by fat under the chin that does not want to have a surgical procedure to remove it.
Many patients treated with Kybella experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve desired results. Dr. Behr will recommend how many treatments to start with at the time of your consultation.
For most patients, downtime was minimal and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. When scheduling your treatments, keep your social plans and work commitments in mind. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, areas of hardness, pain, numbness, and redness in the treatment area.
