Kybella™ for Double Chin Reduction
Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for your “double chin” (submental fullness). Double chins are a common condition that can occur due to aging, weight fluctuations, and possibly even genetics. For some individuals, no matter how much they diet or exercise, the double chin does not go away. Double chins often make people look “heavier” and older than their actual age.
Kybella™ is a NON-surgical treatment available here at Radiance to improve the contour of a double chin. It is a 15-20 minute, in-office injection treatment that is customized to help you get to your aesthetic goals. Kybella™ is ideal for moderate to severe submental fullness. It is made up of deoxycholic acid (a naturally-occurring chemical in your body) that destroys the fat cells of your double chin. Kybella™ is a non-human, non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid.
Kybella™ can be a single treatment, but in most individuals requires a series of two to four treatments. Some patients may require up to six treatments to reach their ideal aesthetic. Each treatment is administered one month or more apart.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Max Lehfeldt, MD is one of the first physicians to be chosen by Kybella™ to offer this amazing new product. Dr. Lehfeldt has also been selected as a trainer/educator/speaker for Kybella™.
