What Is Kybella®?

Kybella® is the first ever FDA-approved treatment for submental fullness. Submental fullness, more commonly referred to as a “double chin”, is the accumulation of dietary fat under your chin and around your neck.

Kybella® is a dermal injection that uses deoxycholic acid to break down and absorb the unwanted fat. Patients and plastic surgeons everywhere are praising Kybella® because of its ability to successfully eliminate the appearance of submental fullness in adults.

Benefits Of Kybella®

Patients are often self-conscious or unhappy with the appearance of submental fullness. Kybella® can eliminate a double chin without the use of surgery or more invasive measures.

Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that is responsible for processing fat cells. The acid disbands the fat under your chin and disintegrates it, leaving your neck and chin looking smoother, thinner, and younger. Additionally, the process is minimally invasive and usually takes between 20 minutes to an hour depending on the severity of your condition.

Multiple clinical trials have been performed to test the success of Kybella®. In two of these trials, participants who received Kybella® injections had a noticeable decrease in the appearance of their double chin compared to the participants who did not receive the treatment.

Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration has approved Kybella® as a safe alternative to plastic surgery, and patients everywhere are raving about the results.

Am I a Candidate For Kybella®?

The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery suggests that over 60% of Americans suffer from submental fullness. If you are one of these people, you may be a candidate for Kybella®.

Patients who undergo Kybella® treatments are often unhappy with and self-conscious about this excess fat. Ideal candidates are over the age of 18 and have no serious health problems.

Is Kybella® Approved for Use in Other Areas of Body Fat?

Kybella® has only been approved for submental use. Treatments should not be administered anywhere else.

Further testing is being done on Kybella® and similar treatments to offer more options for eliminating stubborn unwanted fat.

What Is the Cost for Kybella® in Chicago and Arlington Heights?

Kybella® treatments cost vary from client to client. The amount of injections required depends upon your unique needs. To make Kybella® affordable for everyone, we provide financing options. We also accept credit card, personal check and cash as alternate forms of payment.
