Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable that improves and minimizes the the appearance of moderate to severe fullness of the submental fat (“double chin”).*
Kybella® at Honolulu MedSpa
Kybella® can create a more contoured appearance to the jawline—a common area for sagging and fullness caused by aging, heredity, or weight gain. Honolulu MedSpa works with patients to identify whether Kybella® is the most appropriate treatment, specifically patients with good existing skin quality and a very distinct appearance of fat under the chin.
How Kybella® Works
Kybella® is composed of a naturally occurring molecule in the body called deoxycholic acid. This molecule causes the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The fat slowly melts away and is flushed from the body. As the cell is flushed, the cells surrounding the treated area begin to promote collagen production, thereby helping to tighten and firm the skin for a beautiful result.
Does Kybella® Hurt?
Patients can experience bruising and soreness immediately after the treatment for a few days post injection.
What Does Kybella® Treatments Cost?
A vial of Kybella is $750. We typically recommend 2×3 vial per treatment. So starting services usually start around $1,500 and can go up depending on the situation. Every patient is different.
How Many Treatments of Kybella® Do I Need?
Each patient and situation is different but typically we recommend 2-3 treatments.
What happens during and after a Kybella® Treatment?
After our in-house doctor examines you and determines if you’re a good candidate for Kybella® , our providers will numb the area before treatment to minimize any discomfort. We will apply a small dotted grid to mark the injection area under-chin. Some patients might feel a slight burning sensation, but it is temporary. The entire process will likely take less than an hour.
How long will my results last?
Kybella® will eliminate a lot of your fat cells under your chin but you still have to maintaining a healthy weight to keep remaining fat cells in the area from expanding. As always we recommend a healthy exercise and diet regime to make your results last longer.
