What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved, submental fat reduction treatment that uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to diminish double chin size. The acid compound found in Kybella is made of the same naturally occurring molecules found in the human body. These molecules aid in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the chin, this treatment can make a significant difference in the appearance of submental fat.
How Does Kybella Work?
As mentioned, Kybella is made up of 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 chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness.* Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goals.
What Does Kybella Treat?
A double chin occurs when the layer of fat around your neck sags and causes a wrinkle. The size of your double chin is often impacted by certain genetic and environmental factors. For example, hormone imbalances that lead to weight gain can combine with natural aging and cause your double chin to become larger and more noticeable. In addition, stubborn fat areas like under the chin simply release fat more slowly than other areas due to density. Double chin fat reduction is nigh impossible through traditional means due to the fat’s troublesome location. Therefore choosing this treatment may be the most effective way of reducing submental fat.
What to Expect During Kybella Treatment
When you come in for your fat reduction treatment, a member of our dedicated staff will administer the Kybella treatment via multiple injections under the chin. The total number of injections is dependent on your specific patient needs, but treatment time usually takes about 30-45 minutes. Up to six treatments spaced at one month intervals each have been shown to deliver the best results.
Results of Kybella Injections
Following your Kybella treatment, you may experience some mild side effects. These include swelling, bruising, and numbness under the chin. These side effects typically last for about three days. After the side effects subside, you will see a dramatic improvement in your profile and skin tightness.* Most patients begin to see the effects of Kybella after three treatment sessions, but up to six may be needed for best results.*
