Kybella Treatments

Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the profile of someone looking to reduce the appearance of a double chin, or submental fullness. The Kybella experts at North Shore Aesthetics share the answers to some of the most asked questions regarding Kybella treatment.

Kybella Injections

If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce fullness beneath your chin, Kybella injections may be right for you. Kybella destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile and the appearance of a double chin, and it is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness. The active ingredient in Kybella injections 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 should not be necessary once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Kybella Recovery Time

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.

Each Kybell injection treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments. After Kybella treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.
