How KYBELLA Works
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring secondary bile acid that enhances the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the body.
When injected under your chin, KYBELLA targets and breaks down fat cells, visibly reducing the fullness associated with double chins. When destroyed, these fat cells can no longer store fat. This means that you don’t have to return for additional treatments once you’ve met your desired aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
Before starting your KYBELLA fat reduction journey Dr. Tammy Jones, carefully examines the areas under your chin to determine if you’re a fitting candidate for KYBELLA. If you’re allergic to any of KYBELLA’s ingredients, our doctor may recommend alternative treatments. Individuals who have an active infection at the treatment site are also likely to be directed to other alternatives.
Please let our doctor know if you’re undergoing any other cosmetic treatments, are on any medications, or have ongoing health issues. Patients who arebreastfeeding, pregnant, or planning to get pregnant are encouraged to share this information with our doctor.
On the day of treatment, the doctor delivers multiple small injections under your chin. The number of injections depends on the amount of fullness under your chin and your desired outcome. The entire injection process lasts approximately 20 minutes. The number of treatment sessions required also depends on the patient’s chin profile and their desired treatment goals. Please note that KYBELLA treatment sessions are administered at least one month apart, and you shouldn’t receive more than six treatments.
Some swelling, numbness, and bruising are to be expected after KYBELLA treatment. These should resolve after a couple of days, after which you’ll be free to resume your daily activities.
