Can I use Kybella with other procedures?

Kybella may be used in combination with other procedures to enhance the neck and jawline. Kybella may be used in some patients as an alternative to liposuction. As Kybella eliminates unwanted fat in the submental area, it may be combined with other neck rejuvenation procedures to produce a more pleasing jawline and neck. For example, Forma (non-invasive radiofrequency) may provide additional skin tightening and lifting to complement the contouring effect from Kybella. Skin resurfacing treatment options such as RF Microneedling may be used to further improve fine lines and wrinkles of the face, neck, and jawline. A Photofacial or Lumecca IPL may be used to improve sun damage or brown spots of the face, jawline and neck to complement the fat reduction properties of Kybella by evening out skin tone. As a premiere provider of Kybella NYC has to offer we look forward to working with you on a treatment plan.

What is Kybella (deoxycholic acid)?

Lisa Hartman - Soignez-Vous Med Spa New York

Kybella injection, also known as ATX-101, is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat. Treatments will reduce a double chin and contour the jawline with minimal downtime.

Kybella is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells when injected in their general area. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat contents. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Kybella is not expected.

To avoid potential tissue damage, Kybella should not be injected into or in close proximity (1-1.5 cm) to the marginal mandibular nerve, salivary glands, lymph nodes and muscles.
