How KYBELLA Works
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid 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 fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
How is KYBELLA Administered?
Our Nurse will create tiny injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
Will I Need Time to Recover?
After a KYBELLA treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin but should be able to go about your day. Swelling will gradually go down within a few weeks.
