KYBELLA is made from a chemical that is naturally produced in the body to help absorb fats. It is the first and only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA to reduce fat below the chin. When injected into the fat, known as submental fat, it destroys the fat cells. Clinical trials demonstrated that KYBELLA is safe and effective for contouring the area below the chin. Dr. Gill customizes the treatment for each patient.

You may notice enhanced definition of your chin’s profile after 2 to 4 treatment sessions, which are spaced at least a month apart. Up to 6 separate treatments may be performed. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and small firm areas around the injection sites. These are temporary. It is important to choose a specialist who is trained to inject KYBELLA.
