What is Kybella?

Kybella is a unique cosmetic injectable that reduces the unwanted submental fat tissues, i.e., the stubborn fat tissues under the chin. The excessive accumulation of fat under the chin leads to a “double chin,” which can severely affect your self-esteem and aesthetic appearance, making you look significantly older and heavier. Furthermore, submental fullness is almost impossible to remove through natural means, such as exercise and dieting, because those methods don’t target specific areas of fat. With Kybella, it only takes a few carefully-delivered injections to melt the fat away, thereby achieving a chiseled jawline.

The primary ingredient in Kybella is a naturally-occurring component called deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally-occurring molecule that facilitates the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats in the human body. Kybella treatment involves the targeted injection of synthetic deoxycholic acid into the submental region, focusing the body’s fat breakdown processes on the chin. Over time, the accumulated fat is destroyed, metabolized by the body, and subsequently expelled as waste. The results aren’t immediately apparent, but your chin starts looking more chiseled and slender over multiple treatment sessions.

What does Kybella Treat & what are its Benefits?

Stubborn pockets of fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness or a “double chin.”

Some of its benefits include:

  • Only available non-surgical treatment for the targeted removal of submental fat tissues.
  • Doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort during or after the treatment.
  • FDA-approved and clinically proven treatment without major complications.
  • Activates your body’s natural fat breakdown processes.
  • Produces natural-looking results without obvious signs of cosmetic work.
  • Concludes within 15 minutes with no downtime.

Preparation

  • Inform your nurse practitioner about your medication usage, lifestyle habits, and health history.
  • Avoid ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications before the treatment.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking a few days before the treatment.
  • Wash your face and remove all the makeup and cosmetic products.

Procedure

Your Kybella treatment starts with a personal consultation with the nurse practitioner, who carefully examines your facial tissues to curate the ideal treatment plan. They calibrate the dosage and mark the treatment spots on your chin. The Kybella injections are carefully delivered into the injection spots — the number of injections depends on your specific goals. You may also receive a topical anesthetic before the treatment to ensure optimal comfort.

Downtime

Kybella is a safe procedure without any downtime or extended recovery. Common side effects include swelling, redness, bruising, irritation, and itching around the injection sites. However, the side effects dissipate in a few days, and you can resume all your daily activities immediately after leaving the medical spa.

Results

Kybella produces lasting and permanent results as long as you maintain your weight. However, the results appear gradually over several months and treatments. It takes your body some time to break down and expel the unwanted fat, so you must be patient.

Frequency

According to clinical studies, 59% of all patients require 6 treatments spaced a month apart for optimal results. However, your nurse practitioner will recommend the ideal treatment frequency for your specific needs and goals.
