Kybella, a double chin treatment, medically known as submental fullness, is now available at our office! Dr. Mejia is one of the first exclusive injectors in the United States, trained by Kythera.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Once the desired affect is achieved, retreatment with Kybella is not expected.
How is Kybella administered?
Kybella is administered by injections into the fat under the chin. Each in-office treatment session is typically 15-20 minutes. Treatment with Kybella is customized by the physician to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.
