What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable medication that improves the appearance of fullness under the chin (submental fat) by improving the contour and laxity (looseness) in the treated area. Kybella is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring product in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. Once the cells are destroyed they can no longer accumulate fat and no further treatment is necessary.
How much Kybella or how many treatments you’ll need varies for each patient and your practitioner can help determine your specific needs at your consultation. Each treatment is performed one month apart.
The treatment only takes a matter of minutes and results are typically seen within a matter of weeks.
Side effects of Kybella are swelling, bruising, pain, redness, numbness, and area’s of hardness.
