Kybella Q & A

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is a prescription medicine used to vastly improve the appearance of submental fat or fat that accumulates resulting in a double chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a bile acid that eliminates fat cells in tissue.

Targeted KYBELLA injections can provide lasting aesthetic benefits, such as restoring a double chin to a more balanced, appealing size.

How do KYBELLA treatments work?

KYBELLA injections are comprised of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in your body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. When your provider at Clinical Skin Therapeutics injects this into the fat below your chin, it destroys fat cells, causing a visible reduction in fullness under your chin.

One of the main benefits of KYBELLA is that after treatment, the destroyed fat cells don’t return. In most cases, you won’t need further treatment after your original procedure.

The providers at Clinical Skin Therapeutics are KYBELLA-trained healthcare specialists. At each treatment, they administer multiple small injections under your chin. In total, the injection process takes about 15-20 minutes.

The number of injections and total treatment sessions you need depends on factors such as the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired chin profile. Each KYBELLA treatment session takes place at least one month apart, and you shouldn’t need more than six treatments.

Your provider develops a personalized treatment plan for you to ensure that you achieve optimal results.

What can I expect after KYBELLA treatment?

After KYBELLA treatment, you only need minimal downtime. You will likely experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness at the treatment site below your chin. If anything more serious develops, such as muscle weakness or trouble swallowing, contact Clinical Skin Therapeutics right away.

How long do KYBELLA results last?

The results from KYBELLA treatment should be permanent. Since the injections destroy fat cells, they can’t accumulate under your chin anymore. After you finish the course of your personalized treatment plan, you shouldn’t need any further treatment.
