What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is the first FDA-approved injectable used to improve the appearance of excess fat under the chin, clinically referred to as submental fullness. Traditionally, patients had to undergo surgery to get rid of this stubborn, exercise-resistant fat; now, a series of simple KYBELLA® injections can eliminate it safely and permanently.
How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® is made out of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that naturally occurs within the body. In the body, this compound aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat for digestion. When injected into the chin, it is able to break down the fat cells there in the same way, destroying them completely and expelling them from the body.
While traditional weight loss decreases the size of pre-existing fat cells, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Fat cells that have only shrunken in size can become large again, but fat cells that are destroyed decrease the patient’s ability to gain fat in that area. That’s why the results of KYBELLA® are long-lasting and effective.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
KYBELLA® treatments are fairly simple and well-tolerated by patients. Each injection session takes 15 minutes, with results becoming visible after 2-4 sessions. Injection appointments must be spaced one month apart from one another, and patients typically undergo no more than six injection sessions total. After receiving treatment, most patients experience some degree of swelling, pain, and redness at the injection site. Fortunately, these symptoms usually subside within a few days of treatment.
Am I a Candidate for KYBELLA®?
Nearly any man or woman with submental fat that is over the age of 18 and in good health is a candidate for these injections. However, patients that are pregnant or have a bleeding disorder won’t be able to undergo this treatment. It may also not be safe for individuals with other pre-existing medical conditions.
