What is Kybella?
Kybella is the only FDA- approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the “double chin” area. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that can help break down fat. Injecting Kybella causes the fat cells to be destroyed, taking a few weeks for the body to expel the fat. Once destroyed, the cells will no longer be able to accumulate and store fat. Further treatment is not expected once the desired aesthetic result is achieved.
How many Kybella treatments do I need?
Since everyone’s profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Our healthcare specialist will determine how many sessions you will need based on the amount and distribution of your supplemental fat and your personal goals. Kybella treatment sessions are given about 1 month apart.
Common side effects of Kybella?
Common side effect of Kybella treatments may include swelling, pain, numbness, redness and possible bruising
