What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is one of the newest, most exciting recent breakthroughs in aesthetic treatment. This product is the only injectable that is FDA-approved to improve the appearance of submental fullness, or a double chin. Before KYBELLA®, patients had to undergo painful surgical procedures to remove excess chin fat. Now, they can slim and sculpt their ideal profile in as few as two injectable treatments.
How Does it Work?
The active ingredient of KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a chemical that naturally occurs within the human body. Within the body, this compound aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the chin, the deoxycholic acid works in much the same way, breaking down the excess fat there and aiding in its removal from the body.
Because KYBELLA® decreases the overall number of fat cells in the chin area, there is virtually no chance that the patient will regain their double chin after unless they gain a significant amount of weight.
What can I Expect from a KYBELLA® Treatment?
Each KYBELLA® treatment takes only 15 minutes to complete and features only a brief period of social downtime. While visible swelling in the chin and neck area is common, it usually subsides within a few weeks of receiving treatment.
The amount of treatments that each patient will need to undergo vary. Typically this number is between two and four, but patients with severe double chins may need to receive as many as six treatments. Because it takes time for the body to dispose of fat cells destroyed by KYBELLA®, patients results become more and more visible over time.
Am I a Candidate for this Treatment?
Nearly anyone that has excess chin fat that they would like to remove is a possible candidate for KYBELLA®. However, every man or woman that participates in the procedure must be over the age of 18 and in good health. It’s important for potential patients to keep in mind that this treatment targets fat, not loose skin. Individuals with excess skin on the chin will have to undergo a separate procedure to remove it.
