What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
Even with a fitness routine, some patients have a difficult time losing weight around their chin also knows as a “double chin”. Until now, the only option was invasive liposuction in and around the face. While liposuction is popular, it also increases the chance for complications. KYBELLA® injectable is a filler that targets fat below the chin. Unwanted chin fat is now able to be corrected with a clinically proven, safe solution.
How Does KYBELLA® Get Rid of Double Chins?
Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for breaking down excess cholesterol and fat cells from the foods we eat. KYBELLA® is formulated with synthetic doxycholic acid works by breaking up accumulated fat cells found in double chins. This process decreases chin fold volume for a thinner appearance.
What is the recovery time after KYBELLA®?
After a KYBELLA® treatment you may have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin, but should be able to resume normal activities.
How Long Does KYBELLA® Last?
KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells which once destroyed cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
