What Is Kybella?
As you age, you may notice that the area beneath your chin and around your upper neck may have developed what many classify as a “double chin.”
This fatty area can be frustrating to eliminate on our own.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable for submental fat loss under the chin.
The main ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that is naturally occurring in the body and, when injected, breaks down fatty areas.
Once the fat has been destroyed it is depleted from your body through your natural metabolic process.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Kybella?
This is an ideal treatment for those with fullness under the chin and along the top of the neck.
Who Is Not a Good Candidate for Kybella?
Kybella is not able to address excess or loose skin below the chin.
How Long Do Kybella Treatments Take?
You can expect your treatment session to last around 20 minutes.
How Many Kybella Treatments Do You Need?
Most patients require between two and four treatments to achieve desired results.
When Will Results Show?
Most patients can see noticeable results from their Kybella treatments after two to four treatment sessions.
Is Kybella Permanent?
Kybella is permanent. Once the fat cells are targeted and treated with a Kybella injection, they are destroyed.
New fat cells can form, but the same fat cells that have been destroyed with Kybella injections cannot return.
What Are the Side Effects?
The most common side effects of Kybella are mild swelling, bruising, or numbness at the injection site.
These side effects are normal and should resolve on their own within a few days.
Kybella requires zero downtime and most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following their treatment session.
