Our board-certified providers offer Kybella® injections to treat under-chin fat deposits for men and women in Troy, Birmingham, and the surrounding Michigan communities.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved, non-surgical, non-invasive treatment used to get rid of the fat underneath the chin. This injectable is made up of deoxycholic acid (a naturally occurring substance that absorbs fat) used for the treatment of excess fat found under the chin. As the only FDA-approved product to treat fat under the chin, Kybella® injections can provide you with a contoured, more pronounced jaw line.
With a treatment of Kybella® for a double chin, you can achieve fat reduction that’ll last for years. When compared to other, more expensive procedures such as liposuction (which come with significant downtime), Kybella® makes a great non-invasive alternative. Once the Kybella® has been injected beneath the chin, it will work to destroy fat cells in the area for good. Once the fat cells are damaged, they will be cleared from the body over a period of months for gradual and natural results.

How Are Kybella® Treatments Performed?
Just before getting started with the Kybella® treatment, your Kybella® specialist will first want to determine exactly how many Kybella® micro injections will be required to achieve the desired outcome of the procedure. This will be determined by how much fat is stored around the treatment area.
The majority of patients will require around two to six Kybella® sessions in total, each spaced about a month apart, for the best possible results. Also, the number of injections required in each session can vary drastically depending upon the patient and how much fat is to be treated with some requiring as few as 12 and others as many as 50 micro injections.
The whole Kybella® treatment should take no longer than around 15 to 20 minutes in total, and is performed by your Kybella® specialist in a comfortable office setting.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella® Treatments?
Anyone who’s been struggling with excess fatty deposits located under their chin will be a perfect candidate for Kybella® treatment. Also, for those who aren’t keen on the idea of more invasive procedures such as liposuction or surgery, Kybella® treatments offer an effective and non-surgical alternative.
How Long Will My Kybella® Results Last?
Since the injections of Kybella® will destroy treated fat cells under the chin, the results are more or less permanent and can last for several years. Take note, though, that just because the Kybella® has destroyed the fat cells under the chin, this does not mean that new fat cells cannot develop again in the future. If you really want to maintain the best possible results from your Kybella® treatment, then a healthy lifestyle is encouraged.
