Kybella™ is the first FDA-approved injectable drug that targets submental fullness, often referred to as a “double chin”. Bellaire Dermatology, in Houston, Texas was one of the first practices to offer this revolutionary treatment to solve an issue that bothers 68% of consumers.
As one of the first providers to offer the Kybella™ treatment, our physicians are highly trained in patient assessment and administration of Kybella™ for optimal results. A treatment plan will be tailored to each patient to achieve the desired improvement in submental fullness.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a treatment that is injected into the fat under the chin to destroy fat cells. Kybella is a permanent treatment because once the fat cells are destroyed, those cells can no longer store fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through the body’s natural metabolism.
What are the side effects?
Temporary swelling, pain, numbness, redness and hardness in the treatment area can occur and is considered normal. Swelling is temporary, and the overall recovery timeline is about one month.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatment sessions varies from person to person. Recommended treatment is multiple sessions one month apart. Six treatments is the maximum, and desired outcomes are dependent on the amount of chin fat.
