What is Kybella?
Kybella® is a nonsurgical way to reduce double chin
Kybella® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat under the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.
How does Kybella® work?
The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How many treatments will I need?
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 Kybella® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
How long will results Last?
When injected into fat under the chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
What are the possible side effects of Kybella®?
The most common side effects of Kybella® includeswelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
These are not all of the possible side effects of Kybella®.
