What Is Kybella?
Kybella is the first injectable procedure FDA-approved to improve the appearance of a double chin. Clinically referred to as submental fullness, excess chin fat can be one of the most frustrating and difficult aesthetic problems to correct without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure. With Kybella, patients can tone their chin area without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
How Does It Work?
Kybella is primarily made of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that naturally occurs within the human body. Within the body, deoxycholic acid aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. When injected into the fat underneath the chin, it works in much the same way, causing the fat cells in the area to break apart and helping the body remove them from the chin area over time. Because it can be difficult to target all of the excess fat cells in the chin over the course of one injection session, multiple treatments are typically needed for patients to achieve ideal results.
What Can I Expect From the Treatment?
Most Kybella injection sessions take mere minutes to complete. The injection process is usually well-tolerated by patients. The number of treatments that each patient needs to see substantial improvements in their submental fullness varies depending on the amount of excess fat in the area prior to treatment and other factors. Results also vary from patient to patient.
While the side effects and downtime associated with Kybella are significantly better than those associated with more invasive procedures, it is important for patients to keep in mind that there may be a brief period of downtime associated with the injections. Following treatment, some patients experience temporary swelling in the chin area. Side effects like bruising, redness, and burning in the treatment area are also common.
