Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that reduces the appearance of double chins by eliminating fat cells. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that occurs naturally and helps the body absorb fat. Kybella is a synthetic version of this substance. Treatment with Kybella is quick, has very little recovery time, and best of all – permanently eliminates fat cells.
The membranes of the cells that store fat are destroyed by Kybella. This means that they can no longer store fat after being damaged. In just four to six weeks as the body’s natural healing and removal mechanisms take over these fat cells are dissolved and removed from the body, never to be seen again!
Even individuals who gained weight after receiving Kybella injections did not see a recurrence of their fatty areas, according to FDA-approved clinical trials.
The majority of people may have injections of Kybella without any issues but check with your doctor or schedule a free consultation with one of our trained nurse injectors to see if you would be a good candidate. Only adults 18 and older are permitted to use Kybella. You must also follow all proper aftercare instructions and commit to completing your series of treatments.
Many clients see marked improvement in their fat deposits after the second treatment. Typically, 3-4 treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results. These treatments are spaced a minimum of 4-6 weeks apart. Each session will require 2-4 vials of Kybella. For this reason, treatments are ordered in package to ensure optimal results. Payment plans are available through Cherry, see pricing tab for payment plans and to get preapproved with Cherry. A free consultation is required prior to booking treatment series and a minimum of 50% treatment package deposit is due to book first treatment session.
Frequently Asked Qestions
Kybella is an injectable medication that physically dissolves fat cells. It is currently FDA approved for use in the submental (chin) area.
The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella actually destroys fat cells. Once they are destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile. Effectively eliminating the “double chin”.
Injections are not completely pain free, but in our studio, we offer multiple options for anesthetic. You can choose from injectable lidocaine, topical anesthetic cream or a combination of both.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area.
Other rare, but more serious side effects can include injection site problems such as hair loss, open sores (ulcers), tissue cell-damage or death (necrosis) around the injection site, trouble swallowing or nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
Approximately 45-60 minutes each session. Most clients require 2-6 sessions to achieve optimal results.
Currently the only FDA approved location for Kybella treatment is for submental fat (under the chin).
Immediately you will see swelling for up to 2 weeks. The noticeable decrease in fat accumulation will occur after 2-3 treatments. This is why it is extremely important to adhere to your proposed treatment plan and schedule.
Kybella is a permanent dissolving of fat cells, so additional treatments are not necessary once optimal results are achieved.
The ideal candidate is someone with enough submental fat under the chin but not too much, has good skin turgor and is at least 18 years old, not pregnant or breast feeding. Prior to any Kybella treatment you will have a full consultation with one of our trained nurse injectors to ensure you are a good candidate for optimal results.
