What is Kybella and how does it work?

Kybella is a non-invasive injection designed to target fat cells under the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which 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 destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these fat cells can no longer store or accumulate fat so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

How many sessions will it take to get rid of my double chin?

Kybella treatment requires some patience, because it does take a few months to accomplish all the benefits. Your Nurse Practitioner will decide on the right number of injections for the area where you desire treatment, whether that be under the chin, bra line area or below the buttock, and will communicate this to you during your consultation. Most clients require about 2-6 sessions in order to appreciate a change. Sessions should be spaced out at least 4 weeks.

What should I expect after the treatment?

Some patients may experience mild tingling, redness, numbness or swelling after their injection. These side effects are perfectly normal and they will begin to subside usually within the first week. Ice packs and/or ibuprofen usually provide comfort and peace of mind. Minimizing post-procedural exercise is a good idea, as this can help keep swelling down. You will be able to fully visualize your results within the first two weeks, but this varies from client to client.

The treatment is relatively painless and our nurse practitioners will make sure you are comfortable prior to the procedure with the application of a topical numbing agent.
