What is Kybella?

KYBELLA is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”

Kybella FAQs

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment containing deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, used to reduce moderate to severe submental fat, commonly known as a double chin.

Kybella works by destroying fat cells in the treatment area. Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient, breaks down the fat cell membrane, leading to the gradual reduction of submental fat over several weeks to months.

Good candidates for Kybella are individuals with moderate to severe submental fat who desire a non-surgical solution to improve the appearance of their chin profile. Candidates should have realistic expectations about the results of the treatment.

Kybella is administered through a series of injections directly into the submental fat area. The number of injections and treatment sessions required depends on the individual's anatomy and treatment goals.

Discomfort during Kybella injections is typically mild and manageable. Some individuals may experience temporary stinging or burning sensations at the injection site, which usually subsides shortly after the treatment.

Common side effects of Kybella may include swelling, bruising, redness, numbness, and mild discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve on their own within a few days to weeks.

The results of Kybella are permanent, as the destroyed fat cells are naturally metabolized and eliminated from the body. However, individual results may vary, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help prevent the accumulation of new fat in the treated area.

The number of Kybella treatments needed varies depending on the individual's anatomy and the severity of submental fat. Most people require 2 to 4 treatment sessions spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

There is typically minimal downtime after Kybella injections. Some swelling and bruising in the treatment area are common, but these side effects usually resolve within a few days to weeks.

Kybella is currently FDA-approved for the treatment of submental fat only. It should not be used to treat fat in other areas of the body.

Yes, the results of Kybella are noticeable, with a gradual reduction in submental fat and improvement in chin contour over several weeks to months following the treatment.

Kybella is FDA-approved and considered safe when administered by a qualified and experienced healthcare provider. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks, and it's essential to follow the provider's instructions for optimal results and safety.

Yes, Kybella can be combined with other cosmetic treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, or laser skin tightening to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation and contouring. Your provider can recommend a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and goals.

While some individuals may begin to see results after the first treatment session, the full effects of Kybella usually become apparent over several weeks to months as the body metabolizes the destroyed fat cells and the skin tightens in the treated area.
