Say hello to your stunning jawline! Contour your face with no surgery. Plus more areas if you ask the doctor.
Newport Aesthetics is excited to offer you KYBELLA. This is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells where it is injected. This results in permanent loss of those fat cells and a slimmer you! It is revolutionary and is currently the latest trend in non-surgical liposuction. Well, technically there are small needle pricks involved (the size of Botox needles). If you absolutely prefer no needles, check out SculpSure (the world’s fastest – shortest treatment time – FDA-approved permanent fat elimination laser). We are very proud at Newport Aesthetics to offer SculpSure treatment if KYBELLA is not for you.
The above two treatments, KYBELLA (injectable) and SculpSure (laser) are part of a new area of Medicine called body contouring. They both improve the appearance of stubborn subcutaneous fat (fullness) and the fat loss is permanent! Almost any area on the body with fat can be targeted but you have to ask the doctor first!
KYBELLA WAS FIRST APPROVED FOR SUBMENTAL FULLNESS – WHAT IS THIS?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact both men and women.
Causes may include:
1. Aging (it may naturally develop as you age) 2. Genetics (it may be part of your DNA) 3. Weight Gain
Where else can KYBELLA be used?
Practically ANYWHERE where there is, unwanted fat – UNDER the skin. Kybella does not go deep so it is used a body contouring tool.
Think triceps, bra fat (chicken wings), inner thighs, and keep imaging! Soon, the FDA will approve more areas but for now, the double chin is the only true FDA indication. Talk to Dr. Mai and her clinical team to learn more.
Remember, Botox is currently only approved for crow’s feet and lines between the brows (glabella).
However, we certainly know that it is being used on foreheads and elsewhere – all NOT FDA-approved yet!
HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid. This is 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 (submental fat), KYBELLA causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The result is a more contoured profile!
79% of patients treated with KYBELLA reported satisfaction with the appearance of a thinner face and chin. After being treated with KYBELLA, patients reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger, based on their chin profile, as well as feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight, and less bothered by submental fullness

Other Treatment Areas
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” There is no surgery involved and small needles the size of Botox needles (30 gauge, 1/2 inch) are used to deliver the medication.
Studies are in progress for other areas besides the double chin so stay tuned for FDA-approved indications. Consult with Dr. Mai to hear the latest since she has the inside scoop!
How does KYBELLA® work?
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 (submental fat), KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. These fat cells are forever gone!
Is KYBELLA® right for me?
Please consult with Dr. Mai and her clinical team to decide if KYBELLA® is right for you.
How many people have been treated with KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA®.
Will I experience any side effects?
The safety profile of KYBELLA® is well studied. Here is what the manufacturer says and we will add notes in parentheses:
The most common side effects are swelling (the more the merrier actually), bruising (rare), pain (only initially and very well-tolerated and managed), numbness (expected and makes follow-up treatments even easier), redness (initially) and areas of hardness around the treatment area (rare). KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness. (None of these are permanent!)
These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®.
Contact Newport Aesthetics at (949) 660-9972 if you experience any of these.
How many treatments will I need?
At your consultation we will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions.
During the actual treatment sessions, Dr. Mai (and/or her clinical team) will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections (each poke is the size of an insulin needle injection). There is a maximum of 6 treatment sessions spaced no less than one month apart. You number of sessions will be discussed in advance.
In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥1-grade composite improvement were 8% (1 treatment), 28% (2 treatments), 43% (3 treatments), 55% (4 treatments), 66% (5 treatments) and 72% (6 treatments)
In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥2-grade composite improvement were 0% (1 treatment), .2% (2 treatments), .8% (3 treatments), 3.5% (4 treatments), 3.9% (5 treatments) and 15% (6 treatments)
59% of subjects in the clinical trials received all 6 treatments.
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.
Can KYBELLA® be used in other places?
Now you’re thinking! The short answer is YES.
There is no FDA indication at the moment for any areas outside the “double chin” area but the manufacturer is currently studying the “chicken wings” area and many more!
