KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
HOW KYBELLA® WORKS
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
This treatment was developed for clients with moderate fat beneath the chin. Your professional medical provider will determine your candidacy for this treatment at your consultation.
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15-20 minutes plus 30 minutes for a topical numbing cream before beginning. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
Since everyone's chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from person to person. Your provider will help determine how many sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each session is given at least 4 weeks apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
The results are permanent.
The most common side effects of Kybella include swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
