What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that uses a powerful ingredient to target and remove fat cells clustered underneath the chin. Kybella is an excellent treatment option for patients who already follow a healthy lifestyle, but can’t seem to lose their double chin despite their best efforts. The end result of Kybella is a minimized double chin, as well as a more contoured jawline.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella’s main ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound that effectively eats away at stubborn submental fat cells. What’s most notable about Kybella (besides its results) is the fact that it leaves surrounding healthy cells intact. As soon as Kybella is injected underneath the chin, this acid gets to work dissolving fat cells underneath the chin and around the jawline. Afterward, these damaged fat cells are removed via the body’s natural metabolic processes.

Am I a Good Candidate For Kybella?

You’re a good candidate for Kybella if you have a double chin that just won’t respond to diet and exercise and do not want surgery. Ideal candidates will have good skin quality and already follow a healthy lifestyle, as Kybella cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

A typical Kybella injection takes about 20 minutes to perform. The injection itself is usually placed underneath the chin and around the jawline to deliver the best results.

What Results Will I See?*

Kybella results can be exciting, especially for patients who may be frustrated by a persistent double chin. These results include less fat underneath the chin and a more contoured jawline.

Most patients require 3 or more treatments to achieve dramatic results. Results are typically visible about 8 to 12 weeks after a Kybella treatment. Some patients may need more than one Kybella injection to achieve their ideal results.

Is There Any Downtime?

There’s no need for time off after a Kybella injection. However, many patients feel a slight burning sensation for the first few days after their injection; this is a sign that the deoxycholic acid is getting to work. Other side effects include slight swelling and bruising at the injection site. Massage and wearing a chin strap can help with discomfort.
