What is Kybella™?
KYBELLA™ is FDA approved injection that destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath the chin. It is a non-surgical, 15-20 minute in office treatment session and can be customized to the treatment goals of an individual. The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Dr. Finn is one of the first practitioners to use KYBELLA™ and trains other physicians in its use.
What is the recommended course of treatment?
Most people start to see improvement under the chin after two to 4 weeks after the first treatment. Some patients will require multiple treatments and others will fare better with liposuction or face and neck lift for the best results. At Finn Facial Plastics we will never “sell” you a product, but will instead educate you on all your options to achieve your best results At your consultation with Dr. Finn he will determine how many treatments will be required to give you the best outcome. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved re-treatment is not needed as the fat cells are permanently destroyed.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects of KYBELLA™ include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Very rarely, nerve injury can result, so it is very important your injector has excellent knowledge of facial anatomy. These side effects, if present, will go away within a few months.
