What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a prescription medicine used to reduce submental fullness and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of a double-chin. Kybella® is made of a synthetic deoxycholic acid that permanently destroys the fat cells found under the chin. Kybella® is an effective method of treatment because once the fat cells have been destroyed by the deoxycholic acid they can no longer accumulate or store fat. Kybella® is injected in small quantities in various areas under the chin with a fine needle. Once you have achieved your desired results, you should not need further treatments with Kybella®. Excessive weight gain could potentially reverse the effects of Kybella® treatments.
How long do injection sessions last?
Injection sessions typically last between 15 to 30 minutes. The length of an injection session can vary from patient to patient depending on the number of injections required to treat the submental area. Multiple injection sessions may be required in order to achieve your desired results.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of Kybella® treatments required to achieve results can vary from patient to patient. Most patients need between two and four treatments spaced four weeks apart to achieve optimal results. You may require less or more treatments depending on the severity of your submental fullness and your aesthetic goals. Our staff will create a customized treatment plan to fit your specific needs and help you achieve your desired results.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects associated with Kybella® injections include some mild redness, bruising, swelling, numbness, or discomfort at the injection sites. These side effects are temporary and usually resolve on their own. These side effects should subside within a week of an injection session.
