KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection, formerly known as ATX-101, is the first FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental chin fat.
How KYBELLA works
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, the deoxycholic formula causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
The SF | Bay Area Plastic Surgery difference
We recommend that you schedule a consultation to determine if KYBELLA is the right treatment option for you. During your treatment, our clinical staff will mark out the area(s) that will be treated with injections. A numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable and tolerable. Multiple injections with a small, fine needle will be made into the fatty tissues under the chin. The entire procedure only lasts a few minutes. You may experience warmth and swelling following your treatment, but it will eventually fade.
Recovering from KYBELLA at SF | Bay Area Plastic Surgery
Most patients experience visible results within two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to six treatments may be administered. Our patients have seen excellent results with KYBELLA.
