KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
At Cienega Med Spa, we highly recommend Kybella for the jawline/jowels. It can also be used for the fullness under the chin.
Kybella has been used for many years. It used to be called mesotherapy, but back then no product was tested or controlled by the FDA. In recent years, a company called Kythera manufactured a compound to destroy fat, which gained an FDA clearance in 2015, called Kybella.
A short amount of time after that, Allergan, the cosmeceutical giant, purchased Kythera and their product Kybella, and dropped the Kythera name.
Since then, this product has been gaining widespread popularity.
In the digestive tract, deoxycholic acid breaks down fat by destroying the cell membrane. When injected into subcutaneous fat, this cytolytic drug does the same thing—in targeted locations. The dissolved fat is now cellular debris, and gets cleared into the lymphatic and circulatory systems by specialized immunologic cells. This happens gradually over the span of several weeks. As for the deoxycholic acid, it follows the same path; it gets metabolized and broken down, and then excreted as waste.
Great question we get all the time. If you are looking for NO DOWNTIME, CoolSculpting may be a better option for you, as Kybella does produce swelling and some pain. However, if you are looking to treat your jawline fat, Kybella would be the ideal treatment.
