What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a prescription medicine that consists of an injectable form of synthetic deoxycholic acid and can be used to reduce fullness beneath the chin and improve the appearance of a double chin. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally within the body and helps break down dietary fat so the body can absorb it. The deoxycholic acid in Kybella® targets the unwanted fat cells under the chin and permanently destroys them so they can no longer store fat, which results in reduced submental fullness and improvement in the contour of the chin.
What can I expect during an injection session?
Kybella® is injected under the chin in small amounts using a fine needle. The number of injections can vary from patient to patient depending on the condition of the treated area and the patient’s desired results. Injection sessions typically take between 15 and 30 minutes. Multiple injection sessions may be necessary in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.
How long will my results last?
The results of this treatment are intended to be long-lasting. The deoxycholic acid found in Kybella® permanently destroys the targeted fat cells in the treatment area, making it impossible for the cells to continue to store fat. Weight gain can potentially reverse the effects of Kybella®, but with regular weight maintenance the results of this treatment can be permanent.
Are there any side effects?
Some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, or discomfort at the injection sites. These side effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days of an injection session.
Who is a candidate?
Kybella® has been FDA-approved for use in adults 18 and up who are interested in reducing the appearance of double-chin. This treatment is most effective when used to treat moderate to severe submental fullness.
