Aesthetics Hawaii is one of the first practices in Honolulu to use Kybella™. Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for submental fullness (double chin) that can significantly improve chin contouring without the invasiveness and downtime of surgical options. Kybella was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2015 for the reduction of submental fat.

Kybella is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by our body and used to break down and absorb dietary fat. When properly injected in the chin area, it has been shown to dissolve submental fat (which causes double chin) and result in significant cosmetic improvement by creating a more streamlined contour along the jawline.
