What Does Kybella Do?

If you would like to get rid of your double chin and restore a tighter, firmer appearance to your jawline without surgery, Kybella may be an appropriate solution for you.  Kybella is a revolutionary injectable treatment that targets the dreaded double chin.  But what does Kybella do?

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment designed to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe submental fat, which is fat below the chin that is often called a double chin.  It is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that helps with the digestion of dietary fat.  

What Does Kybella Do?

Kybella melts away submental fat by dissolving the membrane of the fat cells, causing them to release their content.  The body removes the resulting waste from the cells in the following weeks, resulting in a slimmer profile.  Once the fat cells are treated, they are no longer able to store fat.  

Kybella is an in-office procedure that takes about 15-20 minutes.  A single session consists of several injections into targeted areas below the chin.  Patients receive multiple injections in a single session.  

Some numbing medication can be administered before treatment to reduce discomfort.  Most patients need 2-4 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve maximum results. 

When Will You See Results?

The results of Kybella are typically seen about 4-6 weeks after treatment.  The results generally hold up well in the long-term when patients maintain a stable weight.   

Is Kybella Right For Me?

If you would like to remove your double chin non-surgically, and already follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen, Kybella may be the right treatment for you.  Kybella is also ideal for individuals with good skin elasticity.  

Kybella is an excellent way to reduce your double chin and create a defined, sculpted jawline.
