What is KYBELLA ®?
KYBELLA ® is derived from deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in the body. It is used to improve moderate to severe submental fullness, also known as a “double chin”. For most people, the double chin is a difficult area to get rid of, even when losing weight. KYBELLA ® is a great alternative to invasive procedures such as liposuction, because the procedure is quick, non-invasive, and requires no downtime.
What are the Treatment Areas?
KYBELLA ® is only FDA-approved for the submental region (chin and neck). The safe and effective use in other areas of subcutaneous fat is not recommended.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
KYBELLA ® is a quick treatment that can be performed in just a few minutes. Small injections are administered into the fat of the submental region under the chin, and only minimal discomfort is experienced.
How Many Treatments are Recommended?
Typically, multiple treatments spaced one month apart are required. Complimentary consultations are available to discuss the estimated amount of KYBELLA ® needed, as well as a general estimate of the treatment cost for your individualized treatment.
What Should I Expect After the Treatment? How Long Will it Take to Recover?
The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, tenderness, numbness, and redness. These side effects can be reduced through the application of ice packs prior to and immediately after the procedure. Results from one treatment can be seen one month after the treatment, but maximum effects are seen two months after the treatment.
Am I a Candidate?
KYBELLA ® is a safe treatment for both men and women over the age of 18 who do not have excessively-loose skin in the neck and chin area. It is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women, or if there is an infection at the injection site.
