What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is made from Deoxycholic Acid, a chemical naturally produced by our bodies and used to absorb fats. When injected directly into the tissue, it destroys the walls of fat cells. As the fat cells slowly dissolve, the body safely absorbs it, providing a visibly slimmer and more sculpted appearance to the treated area.
Coolsculpting® Elite and Scarlet RF® are also treatments that can be used submental area (double chin) reduction. Speak to one of our experienced Medspa Nurse Injectors for more information on the conjunction of these therapies.
What Is a Kybella® Treatment Like?
Kybella® is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA to eliminate submental fat. Having an Allergan Trainer on our team allows our experienced nurse injectors to safely inject Kybella® into other off-label areas.
The number of vials, injections, and treatments needed depends on the number of fat cells present in the area. However, a series of two to six Kybella® sessions are required to see the best results. Patients have reported a mild to moderate pinching, burning, and sensation of pressure during the injection.
What is Recovery Like After a Kybella® Treatment?
Results of Kybella® can be seen within six to eight weeks of treatment. Subsequent treatments can be performed every eight weeks. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness should be expected post-injection, and in some cases, can last four to six weeks. Generally, at the three-week post-injection mark, swelling begins to subside. More vials of Kybella® injected in a session may lead to more swelling of the area treated.
A full feeling in the area is normal post-procedure and, in some cases, can last up to four weeks. Each patient is different, and results can vary on a case-to-case basis.
Am I a Good Kybella® Candidate?
A double-chin, or submental fat, can be the result of many factors such as genetics, weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and the normal aging process. If you are looking for a noninvasive procedure that can help eliminate or reduce the double chin, then Kybella® may be for you. You may be a great candidate for Kybella® if you:
- Have excess submental fat (double chin)
- Are over the age of 18
- Would like to have non-surgical chin contouring improvement
- Have a realistic expectation for a non-surgical treatment
- Accept that you may require a series of treatments and vials of Kybella® to get the best results
- Understand that swelling will occur post Kybella® treatment
- Are looking for a treatment that provides real, noticeable results along with no surgery or recovery time
