Kybella®: A Non-Surgical Solution For Double-Chins
Eliminate unwanted fat under the chin with non-surgical Kybella® at Botanica Wellness Sanctuary
What is Kybella?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
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.
Who is an ideal candidate for KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is an ideal treatment choice for those that are unhappy with the presence of fat under their chins, also known as submental fullness, and do not want to undergo surgery. If you feel this condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are, or the fat does not go away with adequate diet or exercise, KYBELLA® may be right for you.
How Is KYBELLA® administered?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
