Everything you need to know about our Kybella treatment for stubborn facial fat pads...
"Kybella is a revolutionary injectable treatment used to permanently eliminate stubborn facial fat pads. Kybella is effective for all skin types and ages. It is most popular with men seeking a stronger, more masculine chin and jaw structure; women looking to shrink and lift jowls and sharpen the jawline; or for younger people seeing the early signs of "tech neck" - that bunching of skin and fat that develops under the chin from looking down at electronic devices for extended periods of time. With Kybella, I can "delete" unwanted volume as easily as I can "add" volume to refine facial features, improve symmetry, and restore youthful or gender-desired proportions. Now, that it's part of my "age-fighting arsenal" I can achieve transformative results with simple noninvasive in-office treatments."

HOW DOES KYBELLA® WORK?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, under the jawline, or in the jowls, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness and enhanced refinement of the jawline. Fat cell numbers are set during adolescence and stay constant during adulthood, so destroying these cells permanently reduces the tendency to accumulate fat in the treated areas. This means that once a patient's desired goals are achieved, results are permanent.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME AFTER A KYBELLA TREATMENT?
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Expect swelling immediately after initial treatment and expect a recovery time of six weeks to see the final results of the procedure. This is the perfect time to embrace the face mask during recovery downtime to later show off your long-lasting results!
