What is the Kybella Treatment and How Does It Work?

No longer are invasive treatments the only option for getting rid of fat in hard to treat places. As technology used in cosmetic procedures continues to improve, so does the type of treatment you can receive. Double chins have been one of the hardest areas to treat, typically requiring liposuction. An incredible alternative treatment called Kybella has been gaining traction over the years. The Kybella Treatment is an injectable treatment that avoids the more invasive procedures of surgery and liposuction for a quick and easy procedure.

How Does the Kybella Treatment Work

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable that uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring chemical found in our bodies, to break down the fat cells in your chin. Once the cells have been broken down, your body will absorb them, leaving you with a younger looker chin. The injection can easily be done in our offices and is a less invasive approach than liposuction and other procedures.

Number of Treatments

Similar to other injectable treatments, the number of Kybella treatments will vary by each individual. Most patients will see the best results with multiple injections made during each session. The number of injections needed is typically around 12 to 20 injections with at least two or three sessions needed. Each session should be scheduled at least a month apart for optimal results. Kybella works quickly, with patients seeing results within as little as two treatment sessions.

No Recovery Needed

One of the best parts of Kybella treatment is that most patients will not require a recovery period. Some patients may experience uncommon side effects that are temporary, including pain, swelling, skin firmness, and minor numbness. These symptoms typically last for only a few days and should not be a cause for concern. Keep up your busy schedule with the easy treatments of Kybella.

Combine with Other Treatments

Another popular treatment for the chin area is tightening the skin. While Kybella does not provide skin tightening itself, it can easily be combined with other cosmetic treatments for the best possible results.
