KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile and allow for a more youthful appearance, removing the fat that causes the “double chin”.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA®, deoxycholic acid, is naturally occurring in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Approved for injection into the fat beneath the chin only, Kybella will destroy the fat cells, leaving the patient with a noticeable reduction in fullness. After Kybella treatment, the cells can no longer store fat.
The number of Kybella treatments vary per patient. A treatment plan will be setup the patient at your initial consultation with Dr. Parry and will be tailored to meet specific goals. Treatments should be scheduled at least one month apart and can range from 3 to 6 treatments.
How long do the effects of Kybella treatment last?
Once the desired aesthetic goal is reached, the effects of the Kybella treatment are permanent since some of the fat cells are destroyed during this treatment.
Is Kybella a good alternative to surgery?

How much downtime is there after Kybella injection?
