KYBELLA® is the first and only deoxycholic acid injection that is used to reduce submental fullness, or “double chin”, in adults.
What is Kybella?
How long do the results last?
*With optimal treatment, results will last for many years.
How does KYBELLA® work?
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in KYBELLA® is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that assists in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. *When injected properly into the treatment area, the fat cells are targeted, preventing them from storing or accumulating fat any longer.
How long is the recovery process?
*KYBELLA® provides quick results with no downtime. Immediately after the treatment, you may experience edema/swelling, hematoma/bruising, pain and numbness. *Most side effects will diminish in 7 days or less.
How long does a treatment take?
The length of treatment depends on the submental fat distribution and the patient’s individual aesthetic goals. *A typical treatment takes 15 – 20 minutes, but follow up appointments may be necessary.
Are there any risks?
As with any injection procedure, there is a small risk of infection. We take great care to ensure that this risk is minimized.
Is it painful?
While our team will help ensure that you are comfortable, some patients may experience some discomfort depending on their pain threshold.
