Dr. Doucet Receiving Kybella Treatment
Kybella (deoxycholic acid) Injection
The first & only non-surgical FDA approved injectible drug that improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness due to submental fat under the chin. The actual treatment is fast and takes about 20 minutes. The medication is injected directly into the fatty tissue and begins to destroy the fat cells immediately. Dosage required for effective treatment is determined through a precise tissue measurement and will be determined at the time of injection by Dr. Doucet. The average treatment requirements for desired results are approximately 2 -3 treatments spaced at 6 week intervals. The cost per treatment will vary depending on the amount and location of the fatty tissue.
