How Kybella Works

  1. Kybella Treatment San Diego Cosmetic Laser

Have you noticed that Kybella has become the current “It Girl” of cosmetic procedures? In the year since the FDA approved it for the treatment of submental fat, Kybella has shown up on morning talk shows, in fashion and beauty magazines, and even in local news segments!

The truth is, we can’t stop talking about it, either. Just like the magnetism of every “It Girl”, there’s a reason for Kybella’s popularity. In a nutshell?  It works to melt fat and eliminate that dreaded double chin!

For some of our patients at San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, knowing it works is enough to convince them to schedule their Kybella procedures. But others want to know how it works.

So, for the curious, here’s how Kybella worksKybella before and after

Think of your fat cells as little tiny balloons filled with fat. They gather together and crowd up beneath your chin, giving you that extra little pouch of submental fat that we call the double chin.

Enter Kybella, a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that helps metabolize dietary fat.

When Dr. Parvin Mani injects the formula into the treatment area carefully and strategically, Kybella disrupts the membranes of the fatty cells, causing them to release their contents. As your body metabolizes the released fat…bye bye double chin!

A full course of Kybella treatment includes six sessions spaced one month apart, but some patients see results after just two sessions and don’t need to complete the full six!

Want more great news? Once broken, those cells are unable to accumulate and store fat. So, if you can maintain a proper diet and a healthy weight, you can say good-bye to your double chin for good!

Remember, though, no cosmetic procedure is a weight loss substitute for diet or exercise.

Kybella is the only FDA-approved treatment of its kind

For the first time, you can have beautifully sculpted facial contours – without surgery, and with no downtime. Each Kybella session lasts only 15 minutes, and you can resume your normal activities immediately afterward.

(It just keeps sounding better and better, doesn’t it?)

At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, Dr. Parvin Mani works directly with each patient to provide the best results possible. Schedule a consultation with her so she can help you decide if Kybella is good fit for you and whether or not to combine it with other procedures in order to achieve the results you’re looking for.
