KYBELLA® Injection Treatments

KYBELLA® treatments performed in the comfort of our Kittery office get rid of your double chin.

What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is a non-surgical method of reducing excess fat beneath the chin. It basically gets rid of your double chin, which is caused by genetics, weight gain, or aging. Prior to KYBELLA®, the oenly way to get rid of a double chin was with liposuction or a neck lift, both of which carry a much greater risk of complications and obviously a much longer downtime.

KYBELLA® injection treatments involve a series of injections of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound in your body that gets rid of fat cells. The injections also stop the accumulation of fat which gives you a slimmer chin profile.

It’s important to note that, unlike BOTOX® or JUVEDERM® injection treatments, KYBELLA® treatments permanently destroy fat cells.

Am I a candidate for KYBELLA® injection treatments?
Maybe.
It’s important to note that not everyone is a candidate for KYBELLA®. Those with turkey necks, or loose skin under their chins, are best to seek a surgical neck lift even though some chin and neck tightening does occur with KYBELLA®. In addition, sometimes, thyromegaly or cervical lymphadenopathy can cause a double chin.

It’s advised that people under the age of 18 or over the age of 65 as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women avoid this type of double chin removal therapy.
