Kybella Q&A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable to treat a double chin appearance in adults. The prescription medication destroys stubborn fat cells under the chin (submental fat) to improve the contours of your lower face.

Submental fat becomes more common as you age, especially if you gain weight. You may also be at increased risk for developing a double chin because of your genetic background.

The me.losangeles aesthetics team offers Kybella treatments in-office to eliminate a double chin. Your provider customizes a treatment plan to maximize your results and ensure they look natural.

When should I consider Kybella?

You might be a candidate for Kybella treatments if you're unhappy or embarrassed by excess fat deposits under your chin but aren’t ready for surgery.

Your provider at me.losangeles aesthetics may recommend Kybella if you’re close to your ideal body weight but can’t lose stubborn fat through diet and exercise.

They review your medical history and current health and discuss your expectations for results to ensure Kybella treatments are right for you.

What can I expect during Kybella treatments?

During your treatment, your provider injects precise amounts of Kybella into the area under your chin. Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella that breaks down dietary fat and helps your body absorb it fully.

As your body metabolizes the destroyed fat cells, the area under your chin begins to slim down, and the contours of your lower face improve. Once fat cells break down, they can no longer store additional fat, so you can maintain your results in the long term.

You may experience mild redness, swelling, and bruising in the area of your injections. These issues are resolved within a few days. It can take several weeks before your treatment results are noticeable, as it takes time for your body to metabolize and eliminate the destroyed fat cells.

The number of Kybella treatments you need depends on the amount of submental fat you have and your cosmetic goals. You may need up to six treatments spaced one month apart to achieve your desired results.
