Kybella is a non-surgical injectable, approved by FDA for the reduction of fat in submental area – below the chin (commonly referred to as “double chin”).
It contains deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally present in the body, which helps the body to absorb fats.
When injected into the fat tissue, Kybella destroys the fat cells, which are then removed naturally through the lymphatic system. It is used only for the reduction of fat (moderate-to-severe) below the chin.
There is little or no downtime – the patient can resume daily activities immediately, although there will be some swelling in the treatment area for 3-5 days.
After the completion of the treatment plan, which may take up to six treatments, the fat elimination is permanent – those cells can no longer accumulate or store fat.
If improperly injected it can also destroy other cells, therefore injections with Kybella only should be performed by an experienced, licensed professional.
Kybella has many advantages: it’s minimally invasive, non-surgical, with short treatment sessions and permanent results providing a youthful, defined jawline and neck area. It’s the first and only injectable approved by FDA for treatment of the “double chin”.
Consultation with an experienced, licensed professional will help you understand whether injections with Kybella will be an effective and safe treatment option for you.
The treatment plan can include up to 50 injections in a single treatment, and up to six procedures performed no less than one month apart.
There are, of course, some instances when the use of Kybella is contraindicated.
Only licensed and certified professionals are to be trusted with this treatment.
