Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”
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 aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
How does it 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, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
What should I do or expect post Kybella treatment?
Immediately after the injections, you will feel a burning sensation that will dissipate after a few minutes. You will want to keep applying cooling packs to the area to help with swelling. You will swell and possibly bruise, depending on how you respond. Swelling may last for days, so do not get this treatment before an event.
How many Kybella treatments do I need?
Everyone is different, so depending on the goals you are trying to attain, the number of treatments will vary. Many clients need between 2-4 treatments for optimal results, but some may need as many as 6 Kybella treatments. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart.
