KYBELLA Treatment

March 18, 2020

KYBELLA is a FDA-approved injectable treatment to destroy fat cells in the submental area under the chin to improve your profile.

KYBELLA Treatment

Kybella Is Right For You If:

  • You’re bothered (self-conscious, unhappy, embarrassed) by submental fullness
  • You feel that fat under the chin makes you look heavier or older than your actual age
  • You want to avoid surgery
  • You exercise and eat healthy, but double chin does not improve

How Kybella Works

KYBELLA contains synthetic deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. When injected in submental fat, deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells, resulting in reduction in double chin fullness. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store fat.

What To Expect With Kybella Treatment?

Before treatment, the dermatologist examines the chin area to determine if KYBELLA treatment is indicated for you. Your treatment regimen will be tailored according to severityof submental fullness and your aesthetic expectations.

How Is Kybellatreatment Administered?

In KYBELLA treatment, you receive multiple small injections of deoxycholic acid under your chin, and the entire process requires about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections depend on the amount of submental fat and your desired chin profile.

How Many Kybella Treatment Sessions Will I Need?

The number of sessions vary from patient to patient based on the distribution and amount of your submental fat and your aesthetic goals. Each KYBELLA treatment session is spaced at least one month apart, and not more than 6 treatments.

Will I Need Time To Recover?

You may have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin after KYBELLA treatment.

What Should I Tell My Doctor Before Treatment?

Before KYBELLA treatment, tell your dermatologist about your medical conditions, including:

  • Previous or planned surgery on chin, face or neck area.
  • Previous cosmetic treatments on your chin, face or neck area
  • Previous or current medical conditions in or around the neck area
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Bleeding problems
