Kybella®

Non-surgical treatment for fat under the chin.

Kybella® in Cincinnati Ohio

Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of mild to moderate fat beneath the chin. Kybella® uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat.

When Kybella is injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat again.

Double chin in Cincinnati

Living in the age of selfies, it has become all too apparent how the “double chin” can make you look heavier and older than you really are!

 

Often the double chin has very little to do with weight, and more to do with genetics and aging. Even with diet and exercise, under chin fat may not go away. Kybella® is the perfect solution.

How does Kybella® work?

Kybella® is in an in-office treatment in which deoxycholic acid is injected into the area below the chin. The number of treatments needed depends on the amount and distribution of your submental fat. We start with 2 treatments, spaced 6 weeks apart. Maximal results will be seen at the 12 week mark. It is typical to not notice a decrease in the fat under your chin until after your second treatment, for this reason we offer Kybella® in Cincinnati as a two treatment package. Depending on the amount of fat under the chin, a third or fourth treatment may be necessary.

Process & Results

During your consultation, our aesthetician and physicians will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. All Kybella® treatments are performed by our board certified physicians.

Results

The effects are not instantaneous, but they are long lasting- meaning once the fat is gone, its gone for good!

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4
Step 1

Mark & Measure

Our physician will mark and measure the area below your chin to determine the exact area into which Kybella® will be injected.

Step 2

Numb the Area

Topical lidocaine will be applied to the treatment area. After 15 minutes, the area will be cleaned and a temporary grid will be applied to map out the area for precise injection.

Step 3

Injection

Our physician will inject Kybella® into the treatment area. The injections take approximately 5 minutes to complete. The temporary grid is removed with alcohol and ice is applied to the area for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Fat is removed

Once the injection is complete, fat cells will be physically destroyed over the next 6 weeks. A second treatment in the same area will be performed in 6 weeks.

It's simple— identify the problem areas of your body and we will recommend the right treatment plan for you.
