How It Works
Kybella is a form of deoxycholic acid which destroys fat cells and inherently prevents the surrounding tissue from creating and storing additional fat. This allows your body to gradually destroy the fat in the injected area.
What Problem It Corrects
Kybella is most often used to non-surgically correct a double chin. The term “double chin” refers to fat deposits that accumulate in the area under your chin.
How It Feels
Because it involves multiple injections, most people prefer to have it performed under local anesthesia.
How Long It Takes
Including the administration of local anesthesia, it takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
How Many Sessions Are Recommended
It can take anywhere from 1 to 3 treatments to achieve the result that you want. At the time of your consultation, we will discuss how many sessions we feel will be necessary to provide you with optimal results.
What To Expect After The Treatment
With Kybella, there is no downtime. You should expect some swelling that will last a few days and some bruising that can take anywhere from 10 days to 2 weeks to resolve. During that time, you can use makeup to cover any bruising and feel free to go about your normal daily activities.
