What is Kybella™
Dr Nowak is now offering a treatment for your double chin! Recently approved by the FDA, KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”
Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).
How does Kybella work?
KYBELLA™ is a formulation of a naturally occurring-substance (deoxycholic acid) that targets and breaks up fat cells in the area where it’s injected. Once those cells are broken up, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Once the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, re-treatment is not expected to be required.
How is Kybella Administered?
Kybella is typically given in a 15-20 minute in-office-treatment session. Dr. Nowak will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.
How many treatments do I need?
Dr. Nowak will work with you to determine a treatment plan that’s right for you. Many patients treated with Kybella experience visible contouring in their chin profile after 2-4 treatments. Some people require 6. This really depends on the individual.
Does Kybella require downtime?
For most patients, there was minimal downtime and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session.
