What Is Kybella®?

Kybella® is a popular injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of fat under the chin. Kybella®, as it’s called for short, is an effective and safe way to reduce one’s double-chin or “chubby” look. Kybella® is made from deoxycholic acid, which dissolves fat cells in this area. Kybella® can also help reduce jowls and make your neckline appear smoother and more contoured.

The FDA approved Kybella® for cosmetic use in 2015 after clinical trials showed its safety and efficacy in reducing localized submental fat (double-chin). Kybella® is injected by Dr. Maltais and her team of experts into the layer of fat below the muscles on your neck using a fine needle with local anesthesia applied to the skin. They are able to treat jowls and other small pockets of fat with this treatment as well. 

At Physical Skin Solutions at Arrowhead, Kybella® typically takes about 15 minutes, and you can easily undergo the procedure during your lunchtime.
