What is Kybella®?
This injectable treatment is a prescription medication comprised of a synthetic deoxycholic acid that works to reduce submental fullness and sharpen your facial profile. Kybella® is often used to improve the appearance of a double chin and give the face a slimmer appearance.
How does it work?
The deoxycholic acid found in Kybella® destroys fat cells in the treatment area and prevents them from accumulating or storing fat, which reduces the fullness under the chin and sharpens the jawline.
Benefits of Kybella®
- Long-lasting results
- Short injection sessions
- Reduces fullness below the chin
- Little to no downtime
- Minimally invasive
What can I expect during a treatment session?
A typical Kybella® treatment session can be completed within 15 to 30 minutes and has little to no downtime associated with it. During your treatment session, we will use a fine needle to inject small amounts of Kybella® in various areas under the chin. The number of injections administered per treatment session may vary from patient to patient depending on the patient’s goals for treatment and the amount of fullness under the chin. Some patients may require multiple injection sessions in order to achieve their desired results.
What kind of results can I expect?
Most patients achieve long-lasting results with Kybella® treatments. Kybella® permanently destroys the fat cells in the designated treatments area and prevents the cells from accumulating or storing fat in the future. Extreme weight gain could reverse your results, but, with proper weight maintenance, the effects of Kybella® can be permanent.
Am I a candidate?
This injectable treatment has been approved for use in men and women 18 years of age and older who are interested in reducing submental fullness and improving chin contour. Kybella is most effective when being used to treat moderate to severe submental fullness. Prior to your injection session, we will review your general health and medical history and discuss your goals of treatment and determine if Kybella® is the right choice for you.
Are there any potential side effects?
Common side effects may include minor swelling, redness, tenderness, bruising, discomfort, and/or other injection-related side effects at or around the injection site. These are temporary side effects that should resolve on their own within a few days of your double chin treatment session.
