What Is Kybella®?

Kybella® is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive injectable cosmetic treatment for adults that diminishes the “double chin” look. It’s an FDA-approved solution that targets submental fat with a series of injections.

Each injection administered by Dr. Maltais and her team of experienced professionals attacks unwanted fat cells in the treatment areas. Around several weeks after the treatment session, those fat cells get destroyed and become absorbed naturally by the body’s metabolism. Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead are able to effectively reduce the appearance of double chins and jowls with Kybella®.

Kybella® is a cost-effective treatment for people who want a more defined jawline, a tighter appearance, and a more youthful look without cosmetic surgery. Your double chin and/or jowls don’t stand a chance against the fat-reducing power of Kybella®. The main ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a substance produced naturally by the body that absorbs fat.

Is Kybella® Permanent?

At Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead, we promote Kybella® as a cosmetic treatment that offers long-lasting results. 

Kybella® results can be permanent, but they must be maintained. Kybella® targets and destroys submental fat cells and enabling those damaged fat cells to get absorbed naturally by the body. Once these fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. That doesn’t mean that the remaining fat cells can’t grow over time, though. If a client doesn’t maintain a healthy lifestyle (i.e., having a balanced diet and exercising regularly), they might experience a double chin again in the future.

Benefits of Kybella®

Kybella® is a highly popular cosmetic treatment. There is no surgery involved with Kybella® injectables, no downtime after treatment, nor does anesthesia need to get administered.

Each treatment session only takes 15 minutes, with a minimum of two sessions spaced six weeks apart required for optimal results.

There’s no downtime associated with Kybella®, and the only side effects most clients experience are temporary redness at the injection sites. After a course of Kybella® injections, all clients will soon experience a more defined jawline.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?

You could be a candidate for Kybella® if you have excess submental fat under your chin. Kybella® is an injectable treatment for adults who find it challenging to get rid of that unwanted fat even after sticking with regular exercise and healthy eating.

You may also be a likely candidate for Kybella® if the moderate to severe fat under your chin is due to the aging process or hormonal changes.
