Kybella Injections to be Free of Chin Fat
Kybella is an injectable product that can be used to help your body to rid itself of fat cells that form under the chin (submental fat). Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by the body to absorb fat. If Kybella is injected into a cell, it destroys the cell's membrane and causes the cell to die. Therefore, when Kybella is injected into the fat cells underneath your chin, the cells die and are absorbed by your body for removal.
Our Manhattan dermatologist will administer Kybella in a series of injections during one session and may schedule up to 4 sessions, each one month apart.
Benefits of Kybella Injections
There are other options when you're considering a procedure or treatment to lessen the fat underneath your chin, however, they are far more invasive and costly. Typically, when one has chin fat or excess skin on their neck, they may opt for a facelift to give the appearance of a taut jaw. However, a facelift will not actually remove the chin fat; it will simply tighten the skin around the fat and pull it upwards. Kybella will actually destroy the fat cells and offers the following benefits:
- FDA-approved for use on fat underneath the chin
- Minimally invasive
- No downtime
- Reduced fat underneath the chin
- Better appearance
- Youthful look
- No surgery
- No general anesthesia
- Very rare and minimal side effects (typically bruising, pain, and redness at the injection points)
