What is Kybella and How Does it Work?
Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. Naturally found in the human digestive system, the acid begins to slowly dissolve the casing of fat cells after being injected. The cells are then gradually eliminated by the body. Approved by the FDA in 2015, the technique has produced outstanding results for patients who wish to get rid of their double chins without the need for plastic surgery.
-Approximately 2-6 treatments are required for good results, depending on the amount of submental fat.
-Ultimate outcomes compare favorably with liposuction, without the inherent risks of a surgery.
-Kybella is a “lunch time” procedures that takes as little as 20 minutes per treatment to administer.
-Since swelling and tenderness are normal immediately after a treatment, there is some brief downtime associated with Kybella.
-Improvements are gradual and can continue for months following the treatments.
-Serious side effects are rare and not life-threatening.
-Kybella should never be injected when the area underneath the chin is infected.
