Kybella Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment utilizing ultra-fine needles to inject a solution of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and/or hyaluronic acid into the skin.

Not only does the process nourish the superficial and deep layers of skin, resulting in a rejuvenating glow and healthier appearance, it also stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, enhancing the fullness, elasticity and texture of the skin.

How Does the Treatment Work?
Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and is uniquely tailored to your skin type and condition in order to provide you with superior results. Unlike micro-needling, which penetrates deep into the skin, sometimes causing discomfort, our clinic utilizes a Derma Pen to increase the depth of treatment without the need to penetrate additional layers of skin. This results in a deeper administration of solution to dermal layers where they are most effective, without causing additional discomfort.

Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable medication used to destroy targeted fat cells permanently. This treatment is FDA-approved for use in the area beneath your chin, and improves what’s commonly called a double chin. 

The medical term used to describe a double chin is submental fullness. It develops as part of the aging process, but weight gain and genetics are also contributing factors. Everyone stores fat a bit differently, and there’s no way to direct which fat cells are tapped first during weight loss. That’s why some people experience this fullness while others do not. 

Kybella is formulated from synthetic deoxycholic acid, a substance your body produces naturally to aid in the digestive process. This substance helps break down dietary fat, essentially emulsifying your food.  

How does Kybella reduce unwanted fullness?

Researchers found that injecting small volumes of deoxycholic acid into areas where fat cells are clustered leads to those cells being broken down and destroyed. Kybella works by introducing this fat-busting substance into the tissues beneath your chin. 

The process involves administering many shallow injections, but a special numbing cream ensures you remain comfortable from start to finish. Once in place, Kybella damages a portion of targeted fat cells. Those cells release their stored fat and then collapse. 

Your body’s lymphatic system processes and eliminates both the fat and the cell debris. This leaves you with fewer fat cells beneath your chin, and a firmer, flatter profile. Most people benefit from more than one round of Kybella injections, but Dr. Mikki can advise you on how many treatments you need during your first visit.   

How long will my Kybella results last?

Once Kybella destroys fat cells, those cells are gone forever. They won’t regenerate, which means the treatment is permanent. 

However, the remaining fat cells still expand to accommodate more fat if you consistently consume more calories than you burn. Kybella is best suited for people who have reached and are able to maintain a healthy and stable weight. Gaining a significant amount of weight after Kybella treatment will mar your results.
