If you are struggling to get rid of your double chin, and diet and exercise are not enough, you may be a good candidate for Kybella.  Kybella is an injectable treatment that can banish your double chin for good. One of the questions frequently asked by men and women considering Kybella is – How many Kybella treatments do I need.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment that has been FDA approved for moderate-to-severe submental fat, which is fat below the chin.

How Kybella works

Kybella consists of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and is used to metabolize dietary fat.  When Kybella is injected into the fat cells under the chin it breaks apart the membrane of the cells.  The treated fat cells are then naturally removed through the body’s lymphatic system.

Kybella treatment takes approximately 15-20 minutes, and consists of multiple injections.

How many Kybella treatments do I need?

The number of Kybella treatments needed varies, as it depends on the amount of excess fat you have below the chin, as well as your aesthetic goals.  However, patients can receive a maximum of 6 treatments. Kybella sessions are spaced at least 4 weeks apart.   Patients generally notice some improvement after 2-4 treatments.   

Doctors typically create a customized treatment plan for each patient based on their chin profile.

Are Kybella results permanent?

Yes, Kybella results are permanent, because the treated fat cells are removed from the body, and are therefore gone for good.
