It is the only FDA-approved treatment of its type that destroys fat cells under the chin to create a more aesthetically-pleasing facial profile.
Frequently treated by surgery, fat beneath the chin can now be treated with a less invasive, injectable option — KYBELLA®️. KYBELLA®️ works by using a molecule that occurs naturally in the body to break down dietary fat. When injected into the fat under the chin, KYBELLA®️ targets fat cells and prevents them from accumulating and storing fat. Because of this action, once full treatment with KYBELLA®️ has been completed, further treatments are not expected.
Treatment is available only from KYBELLA®️-trained healthcare specialists, as are our providers at RefineMD. Before treatment, one of our providers will examine the area under your chin to determine if treatment with KYBELLA®️ is the right choice for you. Your provider will then adjust treatment according to each patient’s specific goals.
At the time of treatment, your provider will perform several small injections under the chin after applying a numbing agent for comfort. The procedure is quite simple and takes 15 to 20 minutes. Clients may experience a mild to moderate stinging sensation temporarily after treatment. Swelling, bruising, and numbness are the common side effects after treatment. A patient may receive up to six similar treatments at intervals of at least one month. The number of sessions will be tailored to the needs and goals of the patient.
