Are you always trying to avoid your profile because of your double chin? Do you eat well and exercise but still can’t seem to shake it? Enter: Kybella®! Kybella® is a series of injections administered under the chin, destroying the fat cells. It’s a gradual process, so the body removes the fat cells over the course of a number of days to a few weeks. The kicker? The fat cells do not return!
Most people will need 2 to 4 treatments that are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The number of vials of Kybella® a person needs per visit will also differ from person to person. Most people will need 2-4 vials per treatment, and with subsequent treatments will need less vials. This is because of the reduction of fat from the previous treatments. After your Kybella® treatment, it is normal to have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin that may last for a few days.
Kybella® is first and only FDA approved treatment of its’ kind and was awarded the 2015 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award. The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with the breakdown and the absorption of dietary fat. Since Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat once they are destroyed. Once you’ve reached your desired result, no further treatment is needed!
