Kybella treats the dietary fat under the chin. This is a revolutionary treatment that can help change the lives of those who are affected by this problem area.
Kybella is a FDA approved, synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies, which works to break down and absorb dietary fat. We also use it in other areas with small amounts of fat. It is a great alternative to surgical procedures such as liposuction for removing fat in the chin.
The treatments take less than 20 minutes and there is minimal downtime compared to surgery. There will be swelling for a few days for some this means taking time off, but for others, a beautiful scarf or turtleneck and they’re on their way!! Bruising and headaches are the most common side effects associated with Kybella, though numbness for up to 30 days has been reported.
The number of syringes will depend on the area of the fat treated and the number of treatments will be determined by you and your provider according to your desired outcome. The average number of syringes per treatment is 4 and average number of treatments is 4.
