Keep reading to learn more about this treatment or give us a call and schedule your consultation.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for dissolving fat under the chin. It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule the body uses to break down dietary fat. When injected under the chin, this substance destroys fat cells so they can no longer accumulate fat. This means permanent fat reduction in the treated area.
Most patients will need 2-4 Kybella treatments to see their optimal results. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes. Retreatment is not expected once we achieve your intended results.
The Benefits of Kybella
If you want to reduce fat under the chin without surgery, Kybella may be the treatment option for you. Here are a few of the many benefits of Kybella:
• Non-Surgical- No cuts, incisions, or stitches needed.
• Minimal Downtime- You can return to work and other activities as soon as you’re ready, often the next day.
• Lasting Results- Fat cells don’t regenerate in adults. Once the fat is gone, it is gone for good.
• Visible Results- Kybella results are noticeable and impressive in just a few treatments.
What Should I Expect from a Kybella Treatment?
Kybella treatments are performed in our office. The treatment typically takes 20-30 minutes. You can leave as soon as your treatment is complete. During the treatment, you’ll receive a series of injections that tighten the neck and destroy fat cells. After treatment, you can return to work or rest, depending on how you feel.
After Kybella you may experience bruising, swelling, redness, and numbness in the treatment area. These symptoms typically resolve in just a few days. We’ll give you more information about potential side effects before your treatment.
