Kybella™ is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of fat beneath the chin in men and women. If you are unsure about fat reduction surgery, such as liposuction, Kybella™ may just be right for you.
How does Kybella™ work?
The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid— a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through you body’s natural metabolism.
Kybella™ destroys fat cells. Once those cells are destroyed they cannot store or accumulate fat.
What areas of treatment?
Kybella™ works on areas where it is very difficult to lose weight. For example, it will reduce the double chin, which is often an hereditary trait. It will also reduce the area around the “baby fat” armpit as well as back bra bulge.
What to expect?
Kybella™ is given by your licensed health care provider in the office. The process takes about 15 minutes. An individual may need up 6 treatments which may be administered at 6 week intervals.
At the time of treatment, the area will be numbed with a topical cream. Once injected, the normal sensation feels like a temporary burn.
For some patients, the most downtime occurs after the first treatment. One should be able to resume normal daily activities. However, one should expect a little swelling so keep social and work commitments in mind when scheduling treatments.
The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, numbness, redness and areas of hardness.
How long do the results last?
Those targeted fat cells have been destroyed! You will never gain fat in those areas again. However, it is always important to be mindful of one’s diet and health. And new fat cells just love to get plumper.
