A permanent solution to stubborn fat under the chin.
Physician Skin Solutions is excited to offer our patients in the Phoenix area, Kybella. Kybella is the latest innovation to eliminate a double chin. Approved by the FDA in 2015, Kybella® can effectively reduce fat with a series of injections and is the only non-surgical treatment that can eliminate submental fullness (double chin).
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable used to treat moderate to severe fat in the chin. It is made up of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies, which works to break down and absorb dietary fat.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella breaks down unwanted fat under the skin, just as it breaks down dietary fat. Dr. Maltais injects a small amount of Kybella with a tiny needle under the chin and within a few minutes, the fat is destroyed just where the Kybella was injected. Over time (a few weeks to months) the damaged fat cells are removed permanently by normal body metabolism
Who is a good candidate for Kybella?
Kybella is a good treatment option for both men and women who are struggling with unwanted fat under the chin as a result of aging, hormonal changes, and weight gain.
How long does the Kybella procedure last?
While every Kybella treatment is different, depending on the patient, in general, the procedure will take about 15 minutes. There is a minimum of 2 treatments required, usually spaced about six weeks apart. The results are permanent.
What are the benefits of Kybella?
A defined jawline, tighter skin, and a younger appearance are among the results patients have reported all with no downtime or the risks associated with more invasive procedures.
