How is Kybella Performed:

Each patient will individually be assessed by our trained aesthetics provider during a consultation.

A series of injections will be administered in the treatment area and typically 3-4 treatments session about one month apart is recommended to see best results. Swelling post procedure is common and to be expected, typically subsequent treatment swells less than the first. Swelling typically resolves in 5-7 days.

Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella:

Candidates for Kybella must be over the age of 18 years old and should maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. An ideal candidate for Kybella is someone who has been struggling with accumulated fatty tissue beneath the chin despite diet and exercise. Someone who has loose or sagging skin in the neck or chin would not be a good candidate for Kybella. If you are looking to improve the contours and profile of the chin then this minimally invasive procedure could be right for you.
