What is Kybella? Kybella is a fairly new injectable technique that targets the double chin. This technique is atraumatic and is relatively painless. In FDA approved clinical trials, Kybella has been shown to have a permanent result. The fat cells, otherwise known as adipocytes, do not grow back once they are killed. The double chin, also known as sub mental fullness is a facial aesthetic condition that can be caused from aging, genetics, and being overweight. Men and women are both affected by this and it can lead to an aged or heavier look. Kybella for the Double Chin comes from deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring acid in the human body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. Depending on the severity of the sub mental fullness, the patient can expect to see significant results between 2-4 sessions of Kybella injections, each spaced 6 weeks apart. The maximum amount of treatments a patient can receive is 6. When the patient has come to a pleasing aesthetic effect, there is no need for future re-treatment. However, if one is to gain back weight, you will not see as much fat in the area treated as there aren’t many adipocytes in the given area. How long is each session? Each treatment is roughly 15-20 minutes and results are noticeable within a few months of the initial treatment. What are some side effects? Some possible side effects of a Kybella treatment are bruising, swelling, pain, nerve injury, numbness, redness, hardness, and dysphagia. Can Kybella be used on other parts of the body? Although not FDA approved for other parts of the body, Kybella can still be injected. However, by injecting anything other than sub mental fullness with Kybella, results are not guaranteed.
