What is Kybella?
Kybella is a prescription injectable medication used to reduce the appearance of submental fullness, or double chin. It is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb fats. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella causes the fat cells to be destroyed and absorbed by the body, resulting in a slimmer, more contoured appearance of the chin and neck area. Kybella treatments typically involve a series of injections over a period of several weeks or months, with results becoming more visible over time.
What Does the Kybella Process Look Like?
The Kybella treatment process typically involves a series of injections administered by a healthcare provider in a medical office setting. The number of injections and treatment sessions will depend on the amount and distribution of fat under the chin and your desired aesthetic outcome.
Before the treatment, your healthcare provider will clean the area under your chin and mark the injection sites. The provider will then inject Kybella into the marked areas using a fine needle. The injections may cause some discomfort, but they are usually well tolerated.
After the treatment, you may experience swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, or redness in the treated area. These side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella?
A good candidate for Kybella is someone who has excess fat under the chin, also known as a "double chin," and is looking to reduce the appearance of this fat without undergoing surgery. They should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the treatment. Kybella is not suitable for people with skin infections or allergies to any of the ingredients in the treatment. It is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
