What is Kybella?

An instant hit in the cosmetic world, Kybella was created and FDA-approved to dissolve excess fat when injected into the submental (under-neck) area. Its active ingredient is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is inside of our bodies to break down and absorb fat. When Kybella is injected into a submental fat cell, it causes such damage to the cell that fat cannot ever be stored there again. A couple of months after a Kybella treatment, the destroyed fat cells are flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system, and all that’s left behind is a beautifully contoured neck and chin area.

Key benefits of Kybella

  • Improved contour to the chin and profile
  • Boosted self-esteem and confidence
  • Non-surgical (no anesthesia, incisions, or recovery)
  • FDA approved since 2015
  • Treatments are convenient (15 to 20 minutes)
  • Minimal pain and little downtime
  • Long-lasting results (sometimes permanent)

Kybella treatment details

Before treatment, you will be given a topical anesthetic to numb your skin. This will help minimize any discomfort from the injections. Your skin will be marked with a dot grid to help guide your specialist, and then the injections will be administered. You will receive approximately 10 to 50 Kybella injections (there will be breaks between these injections). While you may feel some pressure and/or a mild burning sensation, the treatment is very tolerable.

Once the injections are complete, the treated area will be wrapped with a compression garment. Most patients get their desired results with 2 to 4 treatment sessions scheduled six weeks apart. Unlike most cosmetic injectables, Kybella does not require maintenance follow-up sessions.
