What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved non-surgical in-office treatment designed to destroy fat cells beneath your chin. Submental fullness sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet under the treated facial aesthetic condition that affects both men and women. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68 percent of people said they are bothered by their double chin. No matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away, making you look older and heavier than you actually are. The treatment is typically given in a series of injections and once the desired aesthetic outcome is achieved re-treatment is not typical.
How does KYBELLA™ work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
What can I expect during my KYBELLA™ appointment and how many treatments will I need?
You and Diane Sanchez, LPN injector will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. She will give you a series of injections at each treatment session, which are spaced a month or more apart. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to 6 treatments may be administered.
Will I experience any side effects with KYBELLA?
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness around the treatment area.
Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.
Sometimes serious side effects can occur, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies).
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the permanent destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA™ is not expected.
