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 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 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 is very safe. Common side effects include redness, swelling and tenderness that resolves over several days to a week.
How long can Kybella Injections last?
Kybella destroys the submental (under chin) fat cells. So the results are long-lasting. Once acceptable results are obtained, no further treatments are necessary.
Kybella is sold by the vial. Each treatment session may require 1-3 vials, so fees may be $800-$1,000 per session. This may seem costly, but surgery is more expensive, requires an operating room and has more downtime. In-office Kybella treatments are far less expensive, safer and easy to repeat.
