Kybella® The Fat-dissolving Injectable

KYBELLA is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness and has arrived at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Vernon Hills! KYBELLA is a substance identical to deoxycholic acid naturally produced in the body that will absorb fat in the double-chin– for good!   The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved the nonsurgical treatment for the double-chin and neck fat. A study performed by the American Society for Dermatologic last year reported that 68% of people were concerned with the extra chin or neck fat.

Master Trainer, Dawn Davidson, RN, has been hand-selected as one of the few injectors in the state that has undergone extensive Kybella® training by Allergan to achieve the best outcomes and minimal complications.


How does KYBELLA work?

KYBELLA is painlessly injected with a very tiny needle to the extra fat in your chin region; the treatment lasts 15-20 minutes. It is performed in a series of 2-4 treatments – the results are permanent! If a consecutive treatment is necessary, the treatment will take place 3-4 weeks post initial treatment.

Who can benefit from KYBELLA injectable?

Anyone who wants to eliminate fatty neck and double chin to enhance their facial structure.  This can be a safe alternative to surgical liposuction.

What can I expect from a series of KYBELLA  treatments?

People who receive a full correction of Kybella® injectable treatments can expect a younger, thinner appearance in the lower face region.  One may combine Kybella® with a skin tightening treatment using radiofrequency or ultrasound such as ThermiLift or Ultherapy to further aesthetic results.

At Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we have several options for double chin reduction with our expert doctors including Laser Lipo, Liposuction and Kybella®. Please call our office to determine which treatment is best suited for your needs at 847-367-8815.
