Meet Kybella! Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is the freestanding non-surgical treatment for submental fat, or “double chin”. When injected into this area, it slowly dissolves or melts away the fat. A series of two to four treatments over several weeks can destroy fat cells. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes, and results are permanent.
Is Kybella right for you? It may be if:
- You’re bothered by submental fullness
- Surgery is not an option for you
- You feel the condition makes you look unattractive
- You eat well and exercise but still have a “double chin”
How is Kybella administered?
After “numbing” the area with lidocaine, a series of small injections are made directly into the fat.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on the desire of fullness. The average number is 2-to 4.
Is there downtime?
There is some swelling and redness first treatment session.
Will I experience side effects?
The most common side effects are bruising, swelling, tenderness, numbness, redness, and area of hardness post-treatment. These symptoms resolve over time.
