Kybella™ is an injectable treatment designed to reduce double chins. It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that is able to destroy fat cells. When injected into the skin, Kybella™ is designed to destroy fat cells so they are unable to store or accumulate more fat.
Before starting your Kybella™ treatment, Dr. Graivier will examine the area around your chin to ensure it’s the right treatment option for you, and to tailor your treatment. Different amounts of fat can be targeted to meet your own aesthetic goals. Dr. Graivier will customize your treatment plan based on your chin profile and desired outcome.
The treatment plan requires a varying number of sessions depending on the amount and distribution of fat around the chin area and your goals. Treatment sessions are usually spaced at least one month apart, and you should not receive more than six treatment sessions total. The procedure involves several small injections under your chin during each session.
This procedure does not tighten or reduce loose skin. It only targets destruction of the fat cells. Most patients will need at least six treatments, spaced one month apart. Each treatment will normally take less than 30 minutes.
Kybella™ is a non-surgical treatment and patients receive multiple injections at one time. Some patients will experience swelling, bruising, limited pain and some redness around the injection sites. For most patients, the recovery time is brief and the results are long-lasting.
Many patients begin to see optimal results after three to four treatments.
