What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment for the appearance of moderate to
severe submental fat (double chin). Kybella destroys the fat cells that
accumulate in the neck then naturally eliminates the fat slowly over a few
weeks. Once the cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat.
What should I expect at my appointment?
Appointments last no longer than 30 minutes, with ice being applied to the area
to numb for 15-20 minutes. Kybella injections cause minimal discomfort. You may
feel a slight stinging or burning sensation. Best of all, you can return to
your daily activities right after your treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Your treatments will be based on your desired look. Most patients experience
results in 2-4 treatments, spaced 1 month apart. Once your desired look is
achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects of Kybella may include bruising, swelling, numbness, areas of
hardness, or redness in the injection site. Kybella injections can also cause
tingling, itching, skin tightness and headache. These side effects typically
resolve within a few days.
