What is Kybella?
Our Newport Beach Kybella treatment is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that works to reduce a fatty double chin without surgery. This prescription injection destroys fat cells, using an active ingredient very similar to one that already naturally occurs in the body. Kybella destroys and sweeps away fat cells to produce a more youthful and sculpted neck and profile, making double chins a thing of the past.
Double chin and neck fat removal
What is called submental fullness or a double chin can be the result of genetic factors, weight gain, or a natural result of aging. This stubborn fat can degrade one’s look, making them look older and heavier than they actually are. We provide high quality neck fat removal in Newport Beach with Kybella injections. This is the first and only non-surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that tackles stubborn chin fat.
Restore Med Clinic offers a wide variety of non-surgical double chin treatments for eliminating unwanted submental fat, not limited to Kybella. Other non-surgical options include Morpheus8 RF Microneedling, which can break up stubborn fat underneath the chin, and help shrink wrap skin back to its youthful state.Learn More
Am I a Kybella candidate?
Men and women of all ages who are experiencing extra fullness or fat beneath their chin will likely benefit from Kybella. Ideal Kybella candidates include:
- Patients who want to reduce or remove excess chin fat
- Patients wanting to look more youthful and refreshed
- Those who want to reduce a double chin without surgery
- Patients who are not experiencing severe skin laxity
Kybella works. Here’s how.
Kybella® uses an active ingredient that is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring element in the body that helps break down and absorb fat. Injected into the fat below the chin, it kills fat cells to produce a noticeable reduction in under chin fullness, as the destroyed fat cells no longer accumulate fat.
What is the treatment like?
Our Newport Beach Kybella treatments are patient tailored. The volume and quantity of injections will be suited to your personal conditions and aesthetic goals. Most patients can expect around 3 vials, or 30 injections, of Kybella to reach their goals. A topical numbing agent is applied to reduce pain and discomfort, and a grid is put on the treatment area to establish the distance between injections so the whole area is uniformly treated for natural and even results.
Treatment sessions typically last 15 to 30 minutes, with most patients requiring 2 to 4 sessions spaced one month apart. There is usually no downtime required after Kybella treatments, and patients resume their normal activities within a day, though some may experience mild swelling or bruising at injection sites.
When will I see the results of Kybella?
The initial results of Kybella will begin to be evident within four weeks of the first session. However, because Kybella is nonsurgical and plays on the body’s natural fat removal process, it will take some time to see its full results, ranging from a few weeks to many months. Throughout this time, fat cells shed and disappear, never to return again. Up to 90 percent of patients will have a slimmer facial profile for 5 years to come.
