What is KYBELLA ®?
KYBELLA ® is derived from deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in the body. It is indicated for the improvement in 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 areas can be injected?
KYBELLA ® is only FDA approved for the submental region. The safe and effective use in other areas of subcutaneous fat is not recommended.
Am I a candidate for KYBELLA ®?
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 contraindicated in pregnant and lactating women and in the presence of infection at the injection site.
What is the treatment like?
KYBELLA ® is a quick treatment and can be performed in just a few minutes. Small injections are administered into the fat of the submental region under the chin. Minimal discomfort is experienced. Results can be seen at one month after the treatment. Maximum effects from one treatment are seen two months after the treatment.
How often will I need injections?
Multiple treatments spaced one month apart are typically required.
What are the side effects?
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.
How much does a treatment cost?
Each treatment is individualized to every client. Therefore, the cost of the treatment will vary from person to person. Complimentary consultations are available to discuss the estimated amount of KYBELLA ®needed and a general estimate of the treatment cost.
