What is KYBELLA®?
Clinically referred to as submental fullness, double chins can be extremely difficult to get rid of through natural means. KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of a double chin. In as little as three treatments, this injectable brings patients beautiful fat reduction results without the need for surgical or laser techniques.
How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® is comprised primarily of deoxycholic acid, a substance that naturally occurs within the body. Within the body, this compound breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When this substance is injected into the subcutaneous fat of the chin, it works in the same way, breaking down the fat there and creating a slimmer profile.
Because this treatment decreases the overall number of fat cells in the chin area, the patient’s ability to regain fat there decreases dramatically. This ensures that KYBELLA® brings patients effective, long-lasting changes to their appearances.
What can I Expect from a KYBELLA® Treatment?
Each KYBELLA® treatment takes a short 15 minutes to complete. Most patients see visible results within 3-6 treatment sessions. While patients usually don’t experience a significant period of downtime following treatment, social downtime due to swelling due to extensive swelling is common. While bruising, numbness, redness, itching, and tingling are also common, these side effects usually subside within a few days of treatment.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly anyone interested in improving the appearance of his or her submental fat is a potential candidate for KYBELLA®. Interested individuals must be over the age of 18 and in good health to undergo treatment. Unfortunately, people that are pregnant or have a bleeding disorder will not be able to receive these injections.
KYBELLA® is a great way for patients that are hesitant to undergo a surgical procedure to reduce their double chins for good.
