Do you have a double chin that is bothering you, but don’t want to undergo surgery to treat it. You don’t have to, because Kybella injectable treatment can provide the relief you need and melt away that double chin. But how many Kybella treatments are needed for optimal results.

What is Kybella
Kybella is the first FDA approved injectable treatment for submental fat, so it is completely non-surgical. Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and is used to metabolize dietary fat.

When Kybella is injected into the subcutaneous fat under the chin it breaks down the membrane of the fat cells. During a single Kybella session multiple injections are made in the area below the chin.

There is generally some swelling after Kybella treatment and this normally takes 5-7 days to resolve, but it may be longer in some cases.

How many Kybella treatments are needed for optimal results?
The number of Kybella treatments needed will vary for each patient, as it depends on the amount and distribution of the fat below the chin, and their personal aesthetic goals.

However, most patients may need 2-5 Kybella treatments to see optimal results. Sessions are spaced about 1 month apart. It is important that patients complete the recommended number of treatments, so that they can achieve the expected results. The effects of Kybella treatment are long-lasting, because the fat cells that are treated are gone for good.
