You don’t want to have surgery
You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
What You Need To Know About KYBELLA® Treatments
KYBELLA® is one of the FDA-approved prescription medications, designed for improving frustrating deposits of fat under the chin, better known as a double chin. KYBELLA® contains deoxycholic acid which is effective in destroying the walls of fat cells. Once the walls are destroyed they are unable to store or hold fat.
When injected under the chin, KYBELLA® is a cosmetic treatment that destroys the walls of the fat cells that causes a common condition known as a double chin. The debris of the cells is then converted into waste. The body then metabolizes this waste and washes it out through the blood and lymph system. Deoxycholic acid is a salt that occurs naturally in the body. Found in bile, this is the salt that assists with digesting fat. KYBELLA® is also a deoxycholic acid in a synthetic form. This means it was produced in a laboratory.
How Does KYBELLA® Treatments Work?
KYBELLA® is a unique and innovative approach for the treatment of submental fullness. It is not a gadget or device that doesn’t work or having to exercise or follow a frustrating eating plan. The active ingredient, known as synthetic deoxycholic acid destroys and targets fat cells under the area of the chin. When injected into the fat cells, the cells that have formed the double chin are destroyed, which means they are unable to accumulate or store fat.

Common Problems That KYBELLA® Can Solve
While it is possible to get rid of submental fullness (a double chin) with surgery, these surgical solutions are not only invasive but also outdated. KYBELLA® is a non-surgical, speedy, and safe solution to get rid of your double chin.
Scarring is the main risk that accompanies most surgical solutions. Injections, on the other hand, have no or very limited chances of forming a scar. KYBELLA® treatments use the natural molecular processes in the body to dissolve unwanted pockets of fat beneath the chin without causing scarring.
Exercise and diet can contribute towards reducing your double chin, yet these efforts cannot destroy fat cells permanently as KYBELLA® does.
As with all prescription-strength treatments, there are a few side-effects associated with these treatments. While very rare, allergic reactions can occur, which may manifest as swelling, difficulty breathing, or hives.
KYBELLA® is a treatment that is not recommended for everyone. If you are pregnant or nursing, you should not be using KYBELLA®. At the same time, if your double chin is not caused by the accumulation of fat, for example, you have loose skin under your chin, or you have a small chin or jaw bone, then a KYBELLA® treatment is not right for you.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate?
KYBELLA® treatments are regarded as safe injections for most people. However, there are a few factors that are used to determine whether a patient is an ideal candidate for KYBELLA®:
The patient is healthy and over 18 years of age
The patient has moderate amounts of fat under the chin
The patient has not experienced any results from exercise or diet
The patient prefers to avoid a surgical procedure
What Is The Downtime After A KYBELLA® Treatment?
Unlike plastic or cosmetic surgery treatments that usually involve going “under the knife”, the non-surgical procedures will mean you are in and out of a doctor’s office relatively quickly. KYBELLA® treatments typically take only 20 minutes, allowing you to return to work or home.
How Long Will It Take To Notice Results After A KYBELLA® Treatment?
t takes up to 6 weeks after your first treatment to notice desirable results. In most cases, you will need between 2 and 4 treatments to achieve optimal results. The sessions often depend on the person. Some people are able to remove all the fat in their neck in a single treatment, while others may need up to 4. If you are required to return for a second session, the next treatment should be done 8 to 10 weeks apart.
