Eliminate that unwanted fat with KYBELLA® at Radiance Skin Therapy in Madison, WI! KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved, non surgical, injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, otherwise known as a “double chin”. The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule that dissolves fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact. The “double chin” can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics, and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. With advanced experience using KYBELLA®, we have found this to be a great treatment to also reduce heaviness in the jowl area and to also treat small stubborn pockets of fat on areas of the body. Use of KYBELLA® in those advanced areas is considered off-label use.
You and your injector will take the time to design a customized treatment plan to help you improve your chin profile or other desired areas. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in as few as two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to six treatments may be administered.
How does KYBELLA® work?
It is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat (*Stryer L, ed. Biochemistry).
When injected into subcutaneous fat, it causes destruction of the fat cells. Once destroyed those cells cannot gain new fat cells, resulting in long-term success.
Possible side effects include and are not limited to:
- Areas of hardness in the treatment area
Rare Side Effects include and are not limited to:
- Trouble swallowing
- Nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
