* Individual Results and Patient Experience May Vary
We are getting great results with Kybella at Well Medical Arts. We invite you to come in to learn how we can help you finally rid yourself of that double chin.
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It impacts a broad range of adults, including both women and men. The occurrence of a double chin is influenced by several factors, such as aging, genetics and weight gain. Submental fullness is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. Having a double chin can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance – leading to an older and heavier look. According to a 2014 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, approximately 7 out of 10 consumers are bothered by a double chin. Until now, chin liposuction or a surgical neck lift has been the only way to eliminate the unwanted double chin

What is Kybella?
KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, first known as ATX-101, is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. KYBELLA™ is specifically designed get rid of the double chin. It is a quick and non-invasive procedure that offers permanent results. Once the treated fat is gone no subsequent treatments are required.
Who is the ideal candidate for a treatment with Kybella?
The ideal candidate for Kybella at Well Medical Arts will be over 18, in good health, and who holds reasonable expectations for their final results. For candidates that have a substantial amount of fat to eliminate we often suggest Coolsculpting as the first phase of the treatment plan. The coolsculpting mini Applicator is ideal for debulking under the chin before the final sculpting with Kybella.
How Kybella works
KYBELLA™ is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The non-invasive treatment is currently approved to provide a non-surgical neck lift to eliminate the double chin.
KYBELLA™ is administered by injections into the fat under the chin. Each treatment is customized to help achieve the client’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile. Once the desired result is achieved with KYBELLA™, re-treatment is not expected.
What can I expect from the recovery period, after Kybella injections?
As soon as a Kybella procedure is complete, patients can go back to work, school, and their daily routine. The chin may see minor swelling, redness, or bruising, but this most often will dissipate over the first week.
When can I expect to see results from my Kybella injections?
Kybella’s results are not immediate. However, most patients note improvement in their submental fat after just one to two treatments. Depending on desired outcome and the customized treatment plan, patients may wish to receive up to six treatments for maximum benefit.
