KYBELLA (deoxycholiac acid) is a manmade substance that is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that helps to absorb fats, and is used to contour and improve the appearance of submental fullness, or double-chin. KYBELLA is comprised of molecules that are naturally-occurring in your body that helps to break down and absorb fat.
People who have a double-chin can greatly benefit from KYBELLA, since this condition can cause someone to look older or heavier and submental fullness can detract from your appearance. Both men and women can get this condition and KYBELLA may just be the answer you are looking for.
KYBELLA treatments are customized according to the aesthetic goals for each patient. Dr. Patel will meet with you to find out what you hope to get from the treatment plan and will then create your treatment plan. There are numerous patients who saw noticeable results after two to four treatment sessions, during clinical studies. There are some patients who will require up to 6 treatments in order to get their desired results. Once you have achieved the results you want, you should not need to be retreated.
As with any injectable, there is a small risk of having some minor bruising. In order to reduce your chances of having any bruising, it is suggested to stop using certain products for two weeks before your treatment, including Aspirin, Fish-Oil, Blood-Thinners, Aleve, Alcohol or any other aspirin-based product. This treatment cannot be done for someone who is pregnant or nursing.
