What is Kybella®?
Hate your double chin?? Kybella® can help!
Kybella® is an injection used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called “double chin.” Kybella® is made of artificial deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat. Kybella® does not eliminate loose neck skin or prominent neck ligaments.
What should I expect when getting a Kybella® injection?
The injection is a quick in-office procedure that takes 15 to 30 minutes. During the treatment, some may experience mild temporary warmth or discomfort. Swelling is common and may last up to a few weeks. This is due to the fat cells rupturing and being naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body. A cold compress is recommended for the first 24 hours following the injection. Most people typically require a series of 2 to 6 injections, spread out every 4 to 6 weeks, to see maximum results. Once Kybella® destroys fat cells, they are gone forever meaning the treatment is permanent. However, maintaining a healthy weight is important to achieve long-lasting results.
