Kybella® is a popular cosmetic treatment that can eliminate stubborn fat cells underneath the chin. It is an FDA-approved injectable treatment containing synthetic deoxycholic acid, one of the body’s naturally occurring molecules that aid in the digestion and absorption of fat. When injected into the fat cells beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys them, resulting in a more contoured, defined jawline. The treatment is non-invasive, meaning that it requires no surgery or downtime, and is suitable for anyone looking to improve their facial profile without undergoing invasive procedures.
The results of Kybella® treatments are typically visible after two to four treatment sessions, spaced at least four weeks apart. The number of Kybella® fat dissolving treatments required will depend on the degree of fat accumulation and the individual’s desired outcome. In some cases, patients may require up to six treatments in order to achieve their desired result.
Before starting treatment, your specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then we will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of fat underneath the chin, also known as submental fat.
Since the fat cells are permanently destroyed, the results of Kybella® are usually permanent.
The number of Kybella® treatments you will need depends on the amount of fat you are looking to reduce. Typically, patients will need between 2 and 4 treatments spaced at least one month apart.
Common side effects of Kybella® include bruising, swelling, pain, numbness, and redness.
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. 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 patient to patient. Your specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments. Average is 3-4 treatments.
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin.
