What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable prescription medicine that can be used to improve submental fullness and reduce fat under the chin. This injectable treatment can be administered in a quick, 15 to 30-minute injection session and has little to no downtime associated with it. Many of our patients are able to immediately return to their daily routines following their injection session.
How does it work?
Kybella® is comprised of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid that targets and destroys fat cells under the chin to prevent them from further accumulation of fat. Once the fat cells have been destroyed by Kybella®, they can no longer store fat, which results in an improvement of the facial profile and chin contour.
Benefits of Kybella®
- Quick injection sessions
- Long-lasting results
- Non-surgical treatment
- Little to no downtime
How many treatments do I need?
We typically recommend a series of two to three treatment sessions spaced about four weeks apart, but the number of treatments required in order to achieve maximum effectiveness can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of submental fullness and the patient’s desired results.
What kind of results can I expect?
The results of Kybella® injections are intended to be long-lasting, if not permanent. Once the fat cells have been destroyed by the deoxycholic acid in Kybella®, they can no longer accumulate or store fat. Extreme weight gain could potentially reverse your results, but with proper weight management, your results can be permanent.
Am I a candidate?
Patients aged 18 years and older who are interested in reducing fullness under their chin and improving the appearance of a double chin are potential candidates for Kybella® injectable treatments. Before your first injection session, we will discuss your goals for treatment and review your general health and medical history to determine if this injectable treatment is right for you.
What are the potential side effects?
Common side effects include mild swelling, redness, discomfort, bruising, tenderness, and/or other injection-related side effects in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and typically subside on their own within a few days of an injection session.
