KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment indicated to treat moderate to severe fat accumulation. Kybella is typically used for fat that has accumulated in the submental area (“double-chin”), however, Kybella can also be used to treat fat around the bra area, knees, abdomen and more.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat by breaking down cell membranes of fat cells. When injecting Kybella, the response is that fat cells are targeted to destruction. The dissolved fat then gets cleared by the lymphatic and circulatory systems, as any waste product in our bodies does. These target fat cells remove themselves gradually over the span of several weeks. As for the Kybella/deoxycholic acid, it follows the same path; It gets metabolized and broken down, and then excreted as waste.
The Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® offers a solution to diminishing or eliminating excess fat without invasive neck lift surgeries, and the following benefits:
- Eliminates double chin
- Permanent results
- Safe and effective
- Minimally invasive
- Quick and easy procedure
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Kybella®?
The ideal candidate for Kybella® has excess fat under the chin that creates a “double chin” and gives the illusion of being overweight even if the person is fit and healthy. Kybella® is chosen as a course of treatment to avoid invasive surgeries that require a lengthy recovery.
What Happens During My Kybella® Treatment?
Kybella® is injected into the targeted area under the chin and jawline with an ultra-fine needle. Once injected, the solution dissolves the fat using deoxycholic acid, revealing a contoured, slim chin. The body uses deoxycholic acid to process and digest that fat we eat in food. While the treatments are painless, it is common to require several injections to achieve the desired look.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Kybella® Treatments?
It typically takes about an hour for the appointment with most people needing two to six treatments. Each one is spread out about four weeks apart.
What to Expect After Kybella® Treatments
There is no recovery with Kybella® treatments. Patients may return to their normal activities immediately following their appointments. On top of that, once the desired look has been achieved, they are permanent. It is necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet to ensure a sculpted look is maintained.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients typically see results after just one Kybella® treatment. The full results may take up to four treatments scheduled about one month apart to achieve the desired look. Since the results are permanent, once they are revealed, no more treatments are necessary.
What Patients Are Saying
“I am by no means overweight, but I have always struggled with a bit of a double chin. I considered cosmetic surgery, but I didn’t want the downtime that comes with surgery. I went in to try Kybella at Rejuv a little over 2 months ago, and even after my first treatment I have seen great results. It has not made my double chin go away completely, but I have seen a significant difference in the way my chin looks. My provider was very upfront and did mention that I could possibly need a second treatment. I go in for that one soon!” – Anonymous Patient Since 2016
“Kybella is amazing. I have always been self conscious about my double chin, and this product gave me my self confidence back. The only down side was a little bit of swelling and it can be a little painful. BUT the results are worth it. No pain no gain, I guess! I did two sessions and it literally looks like I lost 10 pounds. Wish they had something like this for the rest of my body!” – Anonymous Patient since 2007
