Double Chin Reduction with Kybella in Rancho Cucamonga
With a few expertly placed injections of Kybella, our experienced providers at Ahava Medspa can help you ditch your double chin
Kybella® is the first FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment for moderate to severe fat below the chin. Also known as submental fat, this problem area is a common concern for 68% of consumers according to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. Fullness of the chin can be caused by genetics, weight gain and aging. Reducing fat in this area provides a slimmer neckline, helping you to look younger and healthier.
The Kybella Difference
What makes Kybella unique is that it is administered by injection into the fatty area below the chin. The main ingredient in Kybella actually mimics deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps your body absorb fats. After treatment, the fat is liquefied, absorbed, and naturally flushed out of the body. Kybella is a long-lasting solution because the targeted fat cells are actually destroyed.

Your Treatment With Kybella
Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment with minimal side effects. After treatment, you will likely experience some swelling, possible bruising and numbness after the procedure, but these effects should be mild and will resolve within a few days to weeks. The advantage is that the procedure is done in the office without the need for anesthesia, and the results are long-lasting.
Kybella does take multiple treatments, with most patients being pleased with their results after two to six treatment sessions. Your treatments will take between 15-20 minutes and will be performend a month or more apart. Results can be seen within weeks as the body naturally processes and removes the destroyed fat cells. Patients can usually return to regular activity after the procedure with little to no down time.
