Put your best chin forward with Kybella®
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
How many Kybella® treatments will I need?
Dr. Harper believes in an individualized approach for each and every treatment in his practice. A thorough Kybella® treatment will be performed prior to treatment, and the number of vials and sessions will be discussed at that time.
How quickly does Kybella® work?
Results can be seen as quickly as 6 weeks, but often take 6 months to see full results.
Is there downtime with Kybella®?
The majority of our patients have experienced swelling, mild bruising, tenderness, numbness and areas of hardness in certain areas after injection.
