FDA approves Kybella!

Posted on:

The world of aesthetics is constantly evolving and WDC does our best to be on top of up and coming treatments, which is why we are so excited about the newly FDA approved, Kybella by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals.

The time has come to finally get rid of that daunting double chin without going under the knife and we couldn’t be more excited! Kybella is approved for the improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe fullness associated with submental fat in adults (which is the fat underneath your chin).

As you may know, submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults including both women and men and can be caused by aging, genetics and weight gain.

How does it work?

Kybella is identical to the deoxycholic acid that is produced in the body. Deoxycholic acid produced in the body helps the body absorb fats. Kybella is administered as an injection into the fat tissue in the submental area. When properly injected into submental fat, the drug destroys fat cells

What’s the recovery like?

It takes two or three days to heal, where patients may incur some redness, bruising, and numbness.

We’re hoping to see Kybella be available later in the summer and can’t wait to see the amazing results first-hand!
