A game-changing product in facial aesthetics, KYBELLA helps men and women achieve a refined look by eliminating fat from the chin and neck line — without surgery. Also called the “double chin injection,” KYBELLA treatments in San Francisco from the Injectors at Mabrie Facial Institute are a simple way to treat one of the most stubborn concerns in the cosmetic enhancement industry. KYBELLA injections are a safe, effective tool to enhance your natural attractiveness.
What Is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA is the first and only injectable drug approved by the FDA to reduce fat beneath the chin — known clinically as submental fat but usually called a double chin. Although a double chin is a common cosmetic concern, it often goes untreated because it previously required a surgical procedure, such as facial liposuction. Patients who prefer a non-surgical alternative now have a choice with KYBELLA.
It’s formulated using a synthetic version of a chemical naturally produced by the body that helps absorb and process dietary fat. The chemical, deoxycholic acid, destroys fat when it’s injected in the area beneath the chin. The destroyed fat cells are flushed from your body over time, leaving you with a slim, contoured chin and neck.
What To Expect
Our Injectors customize treatments based on your unique anatomy. Your personalized consultation includes a discussion of your aesthetic goals and a thorough physical examination. Once they determine that KYBELLA is appropriate, your Injector creates a precise treatment plan.
Because each KYBELLA treatment session includes multiple injections, your Injector marks a detailed grid on your skin showing the specific injection sites. Most treatments include 20 to 30 quick injections, although up to 50 injections are possible. A topical anesthetic is applied to help maintain your comfort during the treatment.
Most patients begin seeing results after 2 to 4 treatment sessions, spaced about a month apart. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the optimal results. Because KYBELLA destroys the fat cells, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, meaning KYBELLA is considered a permanent treatment.
How Much Does KYBELLA Cost?
At Mabrie Facial Institute, KYBELLA treatment with Dr. Mabrie costs $1,000 per vial. With one of our Physician Assistant Injectors, the price is $900. Because each treatment is tailored to a patient’s specific needs, the cost of KYBELLA treatment varies. The number of injections performed during each treatment session and the total number of sessions needed to get the desired results affect the total cost.
Prices are subject to change, so please call our office for up-to-the-minute pricing.
Are There Side Effects from KYBELLA?
Throughout the multiple clinical trials leading to KYBELLA’s approval by the FDA, the most common side effects were the same as seen in most injectable procedures. Minor bruising, swelling, and redness are typical and diminish after a few days. Numbness, pain, and hardness in the area of the injections are other temporary side effects that may occur.
