How Does KYBELLA Work?

KYBELLA contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by the body to absorb fats. When injected deep into the skin of your submental area, it completely eliminates those annoying submental fat cells. The released fat is then naturally reabsorbed by your body. The result is a noticeable, permanent reduction in fullness.

Who Should Receive KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is recommended if:

  • You’re bothered by submental fullness or submental fat under your chin.
  • You feel that your double chin makes you look older or heavier than you are.
  • Diet and exercise aren’t solving your problem.
  • You don’t want invasive cosmetic surgical procedures.

Note that you are not a suitable candidate if:

  • You have a significant loss of elasticity in your skin.
  • You have difficulty swallowing, or have a previous nerve injury in the chin area.
  • You’re currently pregnant or nursing.

KYBELLA Before and After Treatment

Preparing for Your Treatment

  1. At your initial consultation, your accredited KYBELLA specialist assesses your chin profile and tailors a personalized treatment. You’ll need multiple treatment sessions (typically 2-6), a month apart.
  2. Please inform us if you’re taking antibiotics, blood thinners, or other medications, or if you’ve had previous surgery or procedures on the lower face and neck.
  3. Avoid non-steroidal medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, for 5 days before your procedure.
  4. We recommend taking 1g of paracetamol 1 hour before treatment to reduce discomfort, as several injections are required.

KYBELLA Treatment Aftercare

  1. KYBELLA is non-invasive and there is no significant downtime after your treatment—you may return to your normal activities.
  2. Any minor redness, swelling or bruising will resolve in 1–2 weeks. Opt for a scarf or other neck covering if you have any unavoidable social engagements.
  3. An antihistamine will soothe any itching of the treatment area after your procedure.

What Are the Risks and Benefits of KYBELLA?


The Risks Are Tiny

Although the side effects of KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid)  are minimal, reactions around the injection sites are common. These include swelling, redness, bruising, itchiness, and tingling. Your chin skin may feel hard and tight. These reactions to deoxycholic acid treatment usually resolve within a few days to a couple of weeks. Side effects of Kybella are typically localized to the injection site treatment area. Most patients experience mild discomfort as a result of the deoxycholic acid injection, but these are usually brief.

The Benefits Are Great

KYBELLA is a safe, gentle treatment that destroys chin fat cells without injuring skin or other tissues. You’ll get pleasing results without having to go under the surgeon’s knife. Expect a visibly smoother chin-neck transition, giving your face a leaner, more youthful look!
