Nothing ages you more than a double chin. For some of us it’s a turkey neck that runs in the family. For others it’s due to weight gain and/or age. No matter the reason, its unsightly and can make you look older and tired. In the past, the only way to deal with a double chin was surgery. Surgery is very effective but carries risk, expense and recovery. Kybella injections offer a convenient, in-office procedure with less downtime and expense.
Kybella is a synthetic form of a naturally occuring chemical produced by the body. This chemical, deoxycholic acid, is a bile salt that helps to digest fats. When injected into the area under the chin, it appears to cause the removal of fat cells. This leads to a visible reduction in submental fullness, also known as a double chin.
The Kybella injection sites are carefully mapped out before starting the procedure. During the 15-20 minute procedure, multiple small injections are made into the area under the chin. After the procedure is completed, your are free to return to normal activities.
Yes, but it depends on how much fat you have and the results you desire. Kybella treatments can be repeated every month for up to 6 treatments. Of course, with more treatments you get more results. Patients who have more fat will require more kybella treatments.
Kybella is an injectable drug administered in office. It is FDA approved for moderate to severe submental fat (double chin). In an approximately 15 minute procedure, a series of small injections are made into the double chin fat. Kybella consists of a naturally occurring compound, deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is manufactured by the body to help digest fat. When injected into fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. After 2-3 treatment sessions spaced at least a month apart, visible reduction of submental fat can be noticed.
When administered properly, Kybella injections are very safe. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. These are not all of the possible side effects of Kybella. Most of these Kybella side effects resolve over several days to a week. Usually, Kybella recovery takes about a week as the swelling resolves.
The main side effect many patients will experience is Kybella swelling. Kybella swelling usually peaks after 24 hours and resolves after 48 hours. Some patients that have received more Kybella injections, may experience swelling for a longer period of time. Although you make look worse for a while, the Kybella swelling shows that it is working.
