How long does Kybella last?

Are you so fed up with the excess fat below your chin that you’re thinking about getting Kybella?   If so, it’s important to get informed, so that you understand how Kybella works, and how long it lasts.

Kybella for submental fat

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment for submental fat, which is the excess fat below the chin.  The main ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, and is used to break down fat in the diet.

Kybella works by destroying the membrane of the fat cells, causing the cells to die.  The cells are processed and removed from the body over the course of several months, so there will be a noticeable reduction in chin fat.

How long does Kybella last?

Kybella results should last for years, because the fat cells that are destroyed are gone for good, and are no longer able to store fat.  However, in order to maintain the results, patients should follow a regimen of healthy eating and regular exercise.  

Most patients need 1-3 Kybella sessions to achieve a dramatic reduction in under chin fat.  Several injections are made into the submental fat during a single Kybella session, and the fat is gradually reduced with each treatment (click here).  The results of Kybella will be evident about 4-6 weeks after treatment.

A double chin can be difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise, but Kybella can remove the excess fat safely and effectively (read more).
