How Kybella Works:
Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin”. The medicine used is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down fat and aids the body to absorb that fat. When injected into the area under the chin, this substance targets and eliminates fat cells, giving your chin profile a slimmer look. Once your desired chin profile is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
Treatment with Kybella:
Our Nurse Injectors will customize your treatment plan, with each session normally taking 15 to 20 minutes. Sessions consist of a series of injections underneath your chin and doesn’t require any surgery.
Kybella double chin-reducing injections are a safe and effective treatment that a trained provider will tailor specifically for you to improve your chin profile. Once you’ve achieved the look you want, re-treatment is not expected. This treatment has been tested in clinical trials and is Health Canada approved. Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in these customized injections, has been known to stimulate the production of collagen in your body as well. Over 90% of patients had similar or improved skin laxity after treatment. Injections are administered over multiple treatments so that results are gradual over time.
How many Treatments will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile varies, the number of treatments is different from patient to patient. Your
healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the distribution and amount of your submental fat (double chin) and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
What to expect:
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, redness, or numbness under your chin. This can last a few days or longer, depending on how much solution is used during treatment. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.
