Kybella ®

Kybella is first and only non-surgical FDA-approved cosmetic injectable for the permanent destruction of submental fat (the fat cells under your chin). You can think of Kybella as surgery in a syringe. With just a few quick treatments in our office, you can experience life-changing results and look your best — permanently.

After the recommended amount of treatments, the results are entirely permanent. It destroys fat cells and gives you the kind of change you might have thought was only possible with expensive surgery.

    How does Kybella work?

    Kybella is developed through a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into targeted fat pockets under the chin, Kybella causes the rapid destruction and absorption of fat cells while also preventing future fat accumulation. After treatment, the fat that is cleared from the area is processed by the body’s natural metabolic process. Kybella only targets fat cells; all other cells and tissue remain unaffected.

    How is a Kybella treatment performed?

    Kybella is administered to the fat under the chin through a series of injections. Because each person is unique, a custom treatment plan is tailored for each individual patient.

    The procedure is non-invasive with minimal downtime or recovery required. Most treatments last between 15 and 20 minutes. Lidocain (a topical numbing anesthetic) can be used to minimize discomfort.

    Are multiple Kybella treatments required?

    Depending on each patient characteristics and goals multiple treatments may be necessary. Most patients experience visible results within two to four treatment sessions. Treatment sessions are spaced about a month apart.

    How long does Kybella last?

    Once the aesthetic response is achieved no further treatments will be required unless submental fullness redevelops.

    Who is a good candidate for a Kybella treatment?

    Kybella is limited to the treatment of fat under the chin. It does not treat excess or loose skin, nor can it treat fat in other areas of the neck or face. However, there are other treatment options for these issues, such as Eurothread Lift and Trusculpt ID treatments.

    I go to Chrissy for anything that requires a needle and I will never go to anyone else. The first time I saw her, I asked her what she did to herself and she was an open book. I was nervous for my first Dysport treatment and she did an amazing job explaining the process and what to expect. She takes a consultative approach based on your unique needs/wants and will advise you of the most financially responsible way to achieve those results. Also, she’s tested nearly everything on herself so she can give you a play-by-play on experience and recovery.

    I absolutely love Chrissy and her team! You feel as though you’re walking into a long-trusted friend’s home. Chrissy is one of the sweetest, most down-to-earth people you’ll encounter. She’s also knowledgeable, caring, candid and professional. I’ve received multiple services (Pelleve, Kybella, Dysport) and whole-heartedly trust Chrissy. My motto is to age gracefully by looking like the best version of myself without looking overly done and I feel that Skin Savvy helps me get there.

    I have been with Patty’s since 2015. She is the only person I will let touch my face. She is professional, truthful and talented. She is an expert in her field as a nurse injector. She only uses quality products. She recommends what you will benefit from. I can only give her positive praise. She is one of the best in Austin. I follow her wherever she goes.

    I always love coming here. Chrissy is beautiful and down to earth. You know you’re at the right place when the people who work there look NORMAL. If you walk into a place and people look plastic, turn around and walk back out the door! You want a natural look, and that is what Chrissy and her team will give you. I’ve been in to seem them about 3-4 times and each experience was nothing but pleasant. I don’t think I’ll ever go anywhere else unless I move to another city.
