How long does Kybella last?
It's a permanent removal of fat!

What is Kybella? The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Before Procedure: 

  • Tell us if have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
  • A topical lidocane will be applied 20 minutes before treatment

During Procedure:(What to expect)

  • Before starting treatment, Dr. Martinez will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, he will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

  • Ice pack will then be placed under chin to help any discomfort.
