KYBELLA® is an extremely effective non-invasive way to reduce the appearance of fat under the chin. KYBELLA® injections are not only safe and highly effective, but once you have achieved your desired result there is no need for additional injections to maintain your new look.
In clinical studies, 79 % of patients treated with KYBELLA® had improved satisfaction with the appearance of their face and area beneath their chin 12 weeks after last treatment, compared with 33.6% of patients treated with placebo.
How KYBELLA® Works
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® disintegrates fat cells; the result is a dramatic slimming effect under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
What To Expect Before and After KYBELLA®
Before starting treatment, your certified healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will customize your treatment to your aesthetic goals. The amount of treatments needed varies from patient to patient based their desired results. You can expect a dramatic decrease in the amount of fat under the chin and a more streamlined profile.
How is KYBELLA® Administered?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. The process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and the desired look you want to achieve. There is no recovery time and you will begin to see results within the first few treatments.
