Kybella is a fast-acting, injectable treatment that eliminates your double chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. When Kybella is injected, deoxycholic acid stimulates the fat, causing it to dissolve. After just 2 to 4 treatments, most patients see visible results.
How Does Kybella Work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that is naturally found in the body. When injected into the fat underneath the chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells. When these fat cells are destroyed, they do not return. The cells that are destroyed simply get flushed out of the body naturally.
Is Kybella FDA Approved?
Yes. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that temporarily reduces and eliminates the appearance of fat beneath the chin. When injected, Kybella dissolves fat. The body then removes the fat through natural processes.
Kybella has been FDA approved since 2015. This injectable is effective at treating moderate to severe fat beneath the chin.
Benefits of Kybella
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that permanently destroys fat cells in the submental area under the chin. The results from Kybella are permanent, which means the results are long-lasting without the need for ongoing, time-consuming treatments.
While Kybella targets fat cells, it also contours the body. The cosmetic benefits of Kybella include a smoother, more contoured submental area. Patients love the natural, healthy appearance that results from Kybella.
- Minimizing submental fullness
The Kybella injections can reduce the appearance of submental fullness, or “double chin.” The repeated injections of Kybella gradually dissolve the unwanted fat cells and allows them to be flushed out of the body naturally. Kybella offers patients an all-natural, non-invasive solution to their double chin.
- Non-surgical alternative to liposuction
With Kybella, patients can achieve a slimmer profile without the risk of surgery.
Another major benefit of Kybella is that it offers natural-looking results. Kybella dissolves fat cells, but it leaves other tissues intact. This means that it won’t affect the fullness of your face, and you won’t have to worry about any facial sagging.
- Minimally invasive procedure
Kybella is administered in-office by a trained medical professional. The injections are relatively painless and don’t require anesthesia. When administered by a professional, side effect and bruising are minimal. Most people report that the injections can be almost relaxing.
