When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA®destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Treatment can only be administered by a Kybella-trained healthcare specialist like Judy. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes 15-20 minutes. Judy can help you determine how many treatment sessions you may need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal goals. Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 8 weeks apart.
A week before your procedure, it is recommended that you avoid taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs which thin the blood. This will reduce the risk of bruising at the injection site. You may not be treated if you are pregnant or nursing, have difficulty swallowing, nerve injury or weakness in the lower face, or an infection in the area. If possible, plan your procedure so that you can have 2-3 days before returning to work or attending any important social engagements.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
When injected into the area beneath your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment administered during an office visit. The injection process may take approximately 15 minutes. Judy will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.
Judy can help you determine how many treatment sessions you may need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.
Once the aesthetic effect is achieved, further treatment is not expected.
Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can impact a broad range of both male and female adults. Some possible causes are genetics, weight gain and aging. Sometimes, even with diet and exercise, the unwanted fullness may not go away.
