How does Kybella work?
Kybella contains an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells. As a result, the cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
How many treatments are needed?
Most patients treated with Kybella experience improvement of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. As individual results may vary, some patients will require up to 6 treatments to achieve the desired results. Treatments are typically administered 6 to 8 weeks apart.
Once the chin profile has improved, you may not need to be treated with Kybella again.
Will I experience any downtime or side effects with my treatment?
For most patients, downtime was minimal and occurred more after the first treatment. As with any injection, a patient can experience swelling, bruising, numbness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
Prior to treatment, our medical providers may apply ice packs to help make you more comfortable. Any concerns or questions will be addressed in your complimentary consultation as well as a complete list of post treatment instructions.
