Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin for a gradually improved profile, and more defined jaw – whether you have a moderate amount of fullness, or a bit more.
How does Kybella work?
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.
What is the Treatment Time?
Kybella is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, treatment time in office will range between 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of treatment area. The number of treatments varies from patient to patient.
What does it feel like?
Some patients may experience a slight burning sensation during injections, with a feeling of numbness in the injected area of up to 6 weeks.
Is there any downtime?
After Kybella treatment, you may have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. This is normal and should subside within one to two weeks after treatment.
When will I see results?
Most patients will start to see results in 4 to 6 weeks, with gradual improvement up to 4 months. When injected into fat under the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired result, further treatment is not expected.
