What is Kybella?

Kybella by Allergan has seen a surge in interest since Allergan [the makers of Botox] started promoting it heavily in Houston before the commencement of the summer season.  Often patients will express that one of the most desirable facial features on any man or woman is a well-defined chin and jawline. The face facial area can usually be divided into three equal thirds of the brow, mid-face, and the jaw line. Submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin” in Houston, is a common facial aesthetic condition that can impact both women and men. Using Kybella injections, MD Aesthetica can help patients eliminate the fat cells under their chin for a better-defined chin and jaw.


How is Kybella Applied?

Kybella™ is applied in a series of injections directly into the targeted area to reduce the fat that causes double chins called submental fat. Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid which specifically kills fat cells.
