Put Your Best Chin Forward With Kybella®
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile-whether you have a moderate amount of chin fullness or a bit more.
A cost-effective alternative to liposuction, Kybella® can help you achieve similar results without surgery and with little to no downtime. Say goodbye to your double chin and enjoy a more sculpted, youthful profile in as little as two treatments.
How Kybella® Works
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, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
What To Expect With Kybella®
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if Kybella® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under your chin and your aesthetic goals.
How Is Kybella® Administered?
Treatment can only be administered by a Kybella®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. The injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend upon the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare 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.
Will I Need Time To Recover?
Following your Kybella® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. This may last for a few days, and then these effects should subside.
