Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment for reducing fat under the jawline, commonly known as a "double chin." This customized treatment naturally breaks down fat for improvement in the contour of your chin, without the risks of surgery.
How does Kybella (deoxycholic acid) injection 10mg/mL work?
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.
Who should not receive Kybella?
You should not receive Kybella if you have an infection in the treatment area. It is not known if Kybella is safe and effective for children less than 18 years of age.
What can I expect before treatment?
An office staff member may take your photo to track your results over time. Your healthcare specialist may use cold packs or local anesthesia to help make you more comfortable.
How long is a Kybella treatment session?
The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes.
What are the possible side effects?
Sometimes serious side effects can occur, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies).* Side effects are usually temporary and resolve on their own.
The most common side effects in the treatment area include:
-Areas of hardness
What actions should I take before my Kybella treatment?
Book your treatment around your busy schedule. Consider your social plans and work commitments after each treatment, since side effects are likely. Plan your treatment to help ensure you are ready for a special event, such as a birthday or anniversary. To maximize appointment time, ask if you can schedule your Kybella treatment during an existing appointment for another aesthetic treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
Although you may be excited to see results right away, it’s important to be patient. Allow your body time to process the fat cleared from the treatment area after each visit.
