Kybella

Kybella is a non-surgical, injectable treatment, that helps improve profile appearance and reduce moderate to severe submental fullness, commonly known as a “double chin.”

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which aids in the breakdown of fat, and permanently destroys the fat cells upon injections.

FAQ

The deoxycholic acid helps stimulate the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the submental tissue, it destroys fat cells, which are broken down and eliminated through the lymphatic system.

Kybella is only FDA approved for the unwanted fat tissue underneath the chin. Often times it is used off-label for bra fat, underneath the buttocks tissue, and stubborn abdominal fat.

Kybella is only FDA approved for the unwanted fat tissue underneath the chin. Other frequent treatment areas include unwanted bra fat, inner thighs, and stubborn abdominal fat.

Typically, a series of 2-3 Kybella treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart are required. The number of vials used in each treatment session will vary depending on the amount of submental fat present. It is possible that up to 6 treatments are necessary in more severe cases.

The results can be seen as soon as 4-6 weeks after your first treatment, but optimal results are seen after completion of the recommended sessions. Deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells completely, providing you with permanent results.

Common side effects of Kybella include soreness, mild bruising, and numbness at the injection sites. Significant swelling has been noted to last for a few days to a couple of weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 3 days following the procedure. It is recommended to sleep with your head elevated for the first two nights to minimize swelling.
