What is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment used in to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called double chin. It is not known if KYBELLA is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
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 destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Our nurse injecting specialists will customize your Kybella treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile.
What should I expect after a Kybella treatment?
Swelling can take place from a few days to a week after the treatment session. Mild discomfort may be experienced at the injection sites. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness around the treatment area.
