Kybella: Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Orange County

If you’re bothered by the fullness under your chin, you are not alone. According to an American Society for Dermatologic Surgery survey, 67% of respondents said they were bothered by the excess fat beneath their chin. Excess fat under the chin can be due to genetics, weight gain, and aging. Sometimes, even with diet and exercise, the stubborn chin fat does not go away. Fortunately, Kybella can help.

Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids the the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism. Once your injectable treatment sessions have been completed and the aesthetic effect is achieved, further treatment with Kybella is not expected.

In clinical studies, 79% of people treated with Kybella had improved satisfaction with the appearance of the area beneath their chin 12 weeks after the last treatment.
