What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA® is the first and only injectable that is FDA approved to tighten and tone the skin of the chin, correcting submental fullness and giving patients a sleek, sculpted profile. Submental fullness is the clinical term for a double chin. Previously, patients that wanted to correct this problem had to undergo painful cosmetic surgeries to see results. Now, there’s KYBELLA®.
How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® is able to eliminate chin fat without cutting, surgery, or extensive downtime because of its primary component — deoxycholic acid. This compound naturally occurs within the human body. There, it aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When refined and injected into the chin area during KYBELLA® treatments, deoxycholic acid works in much the way, breaking down and destroying fat. As these destroyed fat cells are removed from the body, patients gradually begin to see their chins become slimmer.
What Should I Expect from Treatment?
Each KYBELLA® treatment takes a short 15 minutes to complete. While most patients need to undergo between 2-4 treatment sessions to achieve visible, beautiful results, others may have to undergo as many as six treatments.
Following each injection session, there is a short period of social downtime. For the first week after injections, many patients experience fairly significant swelling in their chin area. While most people return to normal daily activities during this time, they may not want to schedule any important events.
Am I a Candidate for KYBELLA®?
Nearly any man or woman who is interested in getting rid of submental fullness is a potential candidate for KYBELLA® treatments. These injections are safe for people of all skin types and ethnicities. Keep in mind that individuals that are pregnant or have a bleeding disorder will not be able to undergo this treatment.
