WHAT IS IT?
KYBELLA® is the first injectable treatment that is FDA-approved to treat submental fullness, the clinical term for a “double chin.” Through a short series of injection sessions, patients can see significant improvements in the appearance of their chin fat without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
This product is made of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that naturally occurs within the human body to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once the refined acid is injected into the chin, KYBELLA® begins breaking down the fat there. Over time, this fat is removed from the chin, resulting in a sleeker, slimmer profile. Because the overall number of fat cells in the area is decreased, the results that patients get from KYBELLA® treatments last for years.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Each treatment takes between 15-20 minutes to complete and involves no period of significant downtime. However, it’s important to keep in mind that side effects like bruising, numbness, redness, and tingling in the treatment area are common. Most patients also experience some degree of swelling that can last for a week after each injection session. Patients need to undergo between two and six injection sessions to get the most out of their KYBELLA® treatments. This number varies depending on each patient’s unique condition and state of health.
