Kybella is a first-of-its-kind, FDA-approved, prescription injectable medication that is designed specifically for the treatment of submental (under the chin) fat, also called “double chin”. Patients have raved about the effectiveness and dramatic results they’ve seen after treatment with Kybella. Kybella can help you achieve a more defined facial profile.
Many people who have successfully lost body fat by diet and exercise are dismayed that this stubborn submental area still hangs onto fat. Kybella might be the finishing touch you need to look and feel your best.
Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid. This acid occurs naturally in the body and its role is to break down and absorb dietary fat. When this molecule is injected into the fat under the chin, it breaks down the fat cells. Then, the body’s natural process of autophagy gets to work clearing out and suttling away the now dead cells. The result is a visible reduction in volume of the under-chin area.
Kybella is an injectable medication. A trained Kybella specialist and aesthetic expert will first look at your chin and discuss your desired profile with you. This will help your aesthetician to know how many injections you will need and where to place them. Depending on your desired results, you may need anywhere from two to six treatment sessions spaced at least a month apart. Results are cumulative. A single treatment session should only take around 15 to 20 minutes.
Most patients begin to see results after 12 weeks or 2-4 treatment sessions. Results are cumulative and should be fully realized 6 months after the final treatment. Because Kybella destroys the fat cells themselves, these cells can no longer store fat in this area. After desired results are achieved, no further treatments are expected.
