WHAT IS KYBELLA?
Kybella is an injectable that destroys fat cells in order to remove excess skin under the chin, otherwise known as a "double chin". This injectable is the first and only FDA approved non-surgical option that targets fat under the chin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Kybella is a manmade version of a substance that our bodies produce in order to absorb fat. This substance, Deoxycholic acid, works by destroying fat cells at the site of injection which decreases the appearance of excess fat hanging underneath the chin. Subsequently relieving signs of the "double chin".
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Kybella requires multiple sessions in order to start seeing results. However, as every patient is unique, the exact number of sessions needed will vary based on your case. Kybella treatments are always scheduled as least one month apart and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. Once fat cells have been destroyed by treatment, they will no longer be able to store fat. You shouldn't need any other surgeries or injections after your Kybella treatment.
IS IT PAINFUL?
As Kybella is actively destroying fat cells, it is common to experience swelling, bruising, or soreness at the injection site. You can request an anesthetic cream to numb the injection site.
