Is the dreaded double chin a problem for you? It doesn’t have to be, because you can melt it away with Kybella. Kybella is a revolutionary non-surgical injectable treatment that dissolves unwanted fat below the chin. But how does it work, and how many Kybella treatments are needed to see results.

How Kybella works
Kybella is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule present in the body that helps to metabolize dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the pocket of submental fat (fat below the chin), it breaks apart the cell membrane, leading to the destruction of the fat cells. The cellular debris is then cleared from the body through the lymphatic system.

Patients will feel a burning sensation as Kybella takes effect, but the procedure is not painful. There may be some swelling post treatment that lasts for about 48 hours on average.

Kybella creates a shapelier, contoured jawline without incisions or downtime.

How many Kybella treatments are needed to see results?
It typically requires 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired results with Kybella, but some patients may need up to 6 treatments. The number of Kybella treatments needed varies depending on the size and depth of the area being treated, and the patient’s aesthetic goals. Physicians normally customize a treatment plan for each patient based on these factors.

A typical Kybella treatment consists of approximately 20 injections, and sessions are spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.

Kybella works best on men and women with good skin elasticity.
