KYBELLA is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells. Dr. Sasaki is excited to offer this cutting-edge nonsurgical treatment at the Nurse Injection and Device Center to target and remove submental fat for patients at his Pasadena medical spa.
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight changes, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
KYBELLA is an injection administered into the double chin area, designed to destroy fat cells to shape and refine the area along the jawline and neck. The destroyed fat cells are naturally absorbed by the patient’s body. The treatment is done in a series of injections to the targeted area. Patients may require up to 6 treatments to achieve the desired results.
WHAT TO EXPECT
KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”
You and Dr. Sasaki will design a treatment plan using KYBELLA tailored to help you improve your chin profile. During your treatment sessions, Dr. Sasaki, or his registered nurses will administer KYBELLA into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.

HOW IT WORKS
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
The doctor or his registered nurses will decide how many treatments you need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA, retreatment is not expected.
Before receiving KYBELLA, tell Dr. Sasaki or his nurse about all of your medical conditions, including if you: have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
