KYBELLA ®  is the only FDA-approved injectable that destroys fat cells beneath the chin to improve the look of a “double-chin”. The injection of Kybella ® for the reduction of stubborn fat in the sub-mental area is becoming one of the most sought-after cosmetic injectable procedures; integrating this service into an already successful aesthetic business can benefit both existing patients and a practice’s success.

After fat cells are destroyed by Kybella®, the proprietary formula continues to prevent future fat cells from taking the former’s place. Deoxycholic acid, naturally produced in the body, is the active ingredient that helps break down fat cells. This safe and effective body sculpting formula is administered via multiple subcutaneous injections where it instantly begins working to break down fat cells.

This 3-hour course prepares learners to understand the anatomy, treatment techniques, and assessment skill required to safely inject Kybella® to achieve the outcomes sought by patients. A combination of classroom didactic, live demonstrations, and hands-on practicum offers a unique learning environment and platform to quickly expand the learner’s knowledge base.
