The BasicsThe KYBELLA DifferenceCommon Questions

KYBELLA® is known as an injectable fat dissolver. It’s an FDA-approved nonsurgical option for patients who want to eliminate extra fat beneath the chin—commonly known as a “double chin.” In addition, KYBELLA® can be used in the jowls and other areas of the body as a non-surgical alternative to remove unwanted fat. Some areas of fat can be especially resistant to changes in your diet and exercise habits. At Dr. Robert Cohen’s office, we’re happy to offer double chin and jowl injections with KYBELLA® for our Scottsdale-area patients to help them improve their profiles efficiently and without surgery.

The Basics

KYBELLA® is composed of a chemical called deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced in the digestive system. It’s injected into areas of troublesome fat, dissolving and destroying the fat cells while leaving the healthy tissue unharmed. Once KYBELLA® is administered in the predetermined area of fat and the cells are metabolized, a gradual process of sculpting and tightening continues. This is known as retraction. This process can take between 6 and 12 weeks to complete, leaving behind a tighter, more toned profile. For many patients, KYBELLA® is an appropriate alternative to surgical liposuction.

The KYBELLA Difference

In addition to treatment for double chin, some men and women request injections of KYBELLA® to minimize the appearance of their jowls, which are the lower sections of their cheeks. People occasionally feel self-conscious when they think that their jowls are sagging or “fat.” They may also describe their faces as “falling.” More severe cases of laxity in the lower face may be better served by a facelift.

The main characteristic that sets KYBELLA® apart from other procedures is that it’s quick and comfortable, with minimal recovery time and lasting results. In order to achieve optimal results, we recommend at least 2 treatments. Your precise treatment plan is determined during your consultation with our aesthetic nurse specialists, MK Maloney, R.N., CANS, and Meagan Reguera, R.N., BSN.

Common Questions

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is an individually tailored injectable treatment used to destroy fat cells under the chin area for an improved profile. KYBELLA® is intended for adults with moderate to severe submental fat, aka “double chin.”

How does KYBELLA® work?

KYBELLA® is an injectable formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids to breakdown and absorb fat. KYBELLA® permanently destroys fat cells through metabolic mechanisms, and once those cells are destroyed they are unable to store fat.

How long do results from KYBELLA® last?

The results are considered long term and the fat will not return if the patient’s weight remains stable.

How many KYBELLA® treatments do I need to see results?

Most patients need 2-4 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks or more apart. However, every patient is different, so the number of treatments varies.
