KYBELLA in Kansas City: FAQ

Physician Aesthetic Specialists is one of the few Kansas City medical spas to offer KYBELLA treatment for double chin reduction. A “double chin” is a popular term for the condition known as Submental fullness. This condition is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin. Some people have this condition from a young age due to genetics. But many people find a double chin appears as they get older or gain weight.

What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”It is unknown if KYBELLA is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.

How does KYBELLA work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA destroys fat cells and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.

How many treatments will I need?
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. You will be given multiple small injections under your chin at each treatment. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, at least one month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA treatments. 59% of patients received six treatments in clinical studies.

How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under the chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
