Kybella is used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe fat under the chin, also known as submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella works to break down and destroy the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body over time. This can result in a reduction of the double chin and a more defined jawline.
- Kybella is specifically designed to reduce moderate to severe submental fat, also known as a "double chin."
- Kybella is a non-surgical alternative to procedures like liposuction, which require anesthesia and longer recovery times
- Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after Kybella injections, with little to no downtime required.
- Kybella injections can be tailored to the individual patient's needs, with the number and frequency of injections customized based on the amount of submental fat being treated and the desired results.
Patients typically require 2-4 procedures to reach optimal results. Up to 10 mL may be injected in a single treatment, but dosing depends on the patient’s submental fat distribution and personal goals. Kybella injections can be given every 4-8 weeks. Usually, this procedure takes 15-20 minutes. Possible side effects include: swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and some hardness in the treatment area.
Sessions are typically 20 minutes
