Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Once those fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer continue to accumulate or store fat. Each treatment, inserted into the fat under your chin, typically takes just 15-30 minutes. You can go back to what you were doing the same day!
Kybella results vary by client. While some may see improvement with as little as one treatment, others require 2-4 sessions spaced at least one month apart for optimum effect. Up to a total of six Kybella treatments may be given.
For most clients, there is minimal downtime. You may notice swelling, numbness, redness, bruising or the formation of small areas of firmness for up to a week after treatment. You can easily manage this by applying ice.
