Achieve a youthful profile with an injectable treatment for excess chin fat.
Are you bothered by a double chin? Would you like to non-surgically remove moderate to severe fat below the chin and contour your chin profile? Dr. Chris Hubbell now offers KYBELLA®, a prescription medicine that is injected in adults to treat chin fat.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) safely and effectively treats moderate-to-severe fat below the chin, known as submental fat. KYBELLA® is identical to the deoxycholic acid molecule that is produced in the body and works to naturally help the body permanently destroy and absorb fat.
Who is a candidate for KYBELLA® Injectable Treatments?
Chin fat impacts men and women of all ages. Submental fat or fullness affects people who are overweight but also those of normal weight due to aging and genetics. This area of fat is resistant to diet or exercise. If you are an adult and desire to non-surgically reduce your chin fat and re-contour your chin profile, KYBELLA® may be right for you.
How many treatments do patients need to see results?
Dr. Hubbell advises patients that the number of injections and treatments varies based on individualized needs. After a medical examination of the fat in the neck area and a discussion of the desired aesthetic goals, Dr. Hubbell will discuss the recommended treatment plan including the number of treatments needed. A typical treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes and sessions are spaced one or two months apart.
When do patients see results?
Typically, patients can expect to see results in two to four treatments with complete results usually by six months. Comfort measures are taken to provide little to no discomfort. Minor swelling may occur following the injection but quickly subsides.
KYBELLA® should be done by board certified physician skin expert. Careful and precise injections of KYBELLA® are necessary to avoid inadvertently destroying skin cells.
Dr. Hubbell will discuss if KYBELLA® should be used in combination with other cosmetic enhancement procedures.
