Kybella d is really a chemical called ATX-101 or deoxycholic acid. This is a synthetic form of a chemical your body naturally produces to break down dietary fat in your stomach so that the fat can be absorbed into your body, deoxycholic acid. Kybella has been under study and in development for over 10 years now. It was used in over 2600 patients in over 20 clinical trials. Kybella has been shown to be both safe and effective for treating double chins. In other words, Kybella contains a naturally occurring molecule which eats away at fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact resulting in an improved chin contour.
Traditionally, a double chin or submental fullness has been fixed with procedures like a neck lift or liposuction. These are more invasive procedures that can have complications as well as they have some downtime. Kybella injections offer a non-surgical approach to the double chin problem without any downtime.
Kybella is injected with multiple small injections, very much like Botox is done. Usually 2 to 3 vials are used per Kybella injection treatment. Generally, 2 to 3 treatments are required to get the results that most patients are looking for if they have a double chin but it could be up to 5 treatments. The treatments are usually done about a month apart.
The results are NOT immediate and the effects of each injection usually take about a week or more. There is more improvement after each injection.
Although the science would suggest that fat cells that have been “eaten” or dissolved by Kybella injections will not return, we do not know for sure as Kybella has been around long enough to use the word “permanent”. They should last a long time however.
Patients are extremely pleased with their no-hassle, non-surgical, minimal downtime Kybella treatments and the dramatic results Kybella can produce. Increased self-esteem is a common benefit enjoyed by Kybella patients. People who have been self-conscious about their double chins their entire lives are finally free of that burden. They feel more attractive, happy, and confident. Most Kybella reviews are very positive. Kybella results are more than skin deep.

Dr. Soika is a highly competent and compassionate cosmetic surgeon. She did an eye lift for me and I am absolutely thrilled and satisfied with the results. She is masterful at her work and takes extra care to ensure proper follow up and recovery is accomplished.
I suffered deep thermal burns to my face caused by the incompetence of a Dermatologist for 1 year with no relief, until I met Dr. Soika. She administered a treatment to give me the relief I was looking for. She was the only Dr.who took the time to listen, diagnose and performed a procedure with great results! Because of her, I am on the road to recovery!
My sons wedding was coming and I wanted to look and feel my best, I called Dr. Soika because I saw her local Ad. It was the best call I made! My skin looks 7 years younger-tighter, and I look for rested and awake. I didn’t believe it was possible without surgery, but Dr. Soika did an incredible procedure in 1 1/2 hours with no down time.A.
