Kybella is an FDA-approved prescription medication designed for the treatment of submental fat beneath the chin. This is also called a double chin, and it can be a point of insecurity for many people. At Bionuu in Littleton, we’re thrilled to help our patients achieve their cosmetic goals with Kybella treatment.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella is a deoxycholic acid injection. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breaking down and absorption of dietary fat.

Submental fat, or a double chin, can form for a variety of reasons including aging, weight gain, and genetics. Some people have submental fat from a young age, while others only develop it in older age. Submental fat diminishes definition in the profile.

In Kybella treatment, deoxycholic acid is injected beneath the chin. It rids the area of submental fat by breaking up fat cells. Kybella eliminates fat storage under the chin, creating a smooth, youthful profile.

What Are the Benefits of Kybella?

  • Kybella is non-surgical treatment that generally takes just 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
  • Kybella treatment eliminates fat cells beneath the chin, so results are permanent.
  • If you lead a healthy lifestyle but still struggle with submental fat, Kybella can be an effective treatment option for you.

To achieve your desired results, multiple Kybella treatments may be beneficial. You should wait at least one month between Kybella treatments, and six is the recommended maximum number of treatments.
