Kybella® is an injectable treatment performed at our Chicago clinic, indicated for the reduction of moderate to severe submental fat, also known as a “double chin”. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Q: How do I know if Kybella® is right for me?
A: You will need to schedule a cosmetic consultation with one of our CCSD providers. Only your doctor can decide on the most appropriate treatment plan. If Kybella® isn’t the right solution for you, the great news is we also offer other non-surgical treatment options to help reduce fat to the chin area including the CoolSculpting CoolMini, Thermage, Thermi RF tissue tightening, Pure Tumescent Liposuction with Dr. Carolyn Jacob and surgical Liposuction with Dr. Niki Christopoulos.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: Our CCSD Physicians will customize your Kybella® treatment to provide optimum results. This will include how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, the Kybella® is injected under your chin using multiple sites. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be required, appointments are spaced no less than one month apart.
Q: How long do results last?
A: When injected into the fat under your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Kybella® is not expected.
