Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment that utilizes synthetic deoxycholic acid to break down stubborn fat in the neck area, reducing the appearance of a double chin. The injected solution dissolves the fat, which is gradually eliminated by the body's natural metabolic process.
Optimal results are achieved through a series of injections administered at 3-4 weeks apart, typically requiring 2-4 sessions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Kybella and how does it work?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment specifically designed to reduce submental fat, commonly known as a double chin. It contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down and absorb fat cells. When injected into the targeted area, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline.
How many Kybella treatments are required to see results?
The number of Kybella treatments needed can vary depending on individual factors, including the amount of submental fat and desired results. In general, multiple treatment sessions are required, typically spaced four to six weeks apart. Your healthcare provider will assess your specific needs and create a customized treatment plan to achieve optimal results.
What are the potential side effects of Kybella?
Common side effects of Kybella include temporary swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness in the treated area. These side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days to a week. It's important to discuss your medical history and any potential contraindications with your healthcare provider before undergoing Kybella treatment. They will provide you with detailed information about the procedure, including the risks and benefits specific to your case.
