How does it work?
Kybella is an amazing, non-surgical solution to permanently firm and reshape your chin. Kybella is our number one recommendation to tighten a double-chin and give you a more pleasing profile. Your body already makes deoxycholic acid to break down dietary fat. Kybella is simply a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid and when it is injected, it dissolves fat so that your body can absorb it.
What is the procedure like?
Kybella is injected directly into the pad of fat beneath your chin in a series of small injections that take about 20 minutes. You may need six treatments to achieve optimal results. There may be temporary redness and soreness at the injection site, but you can resume normal activities immediately.
What are the results?
In four to six weeks, you will have a better-defined chin and profile—and the best news? Kybella is permanent! The fat cells Kybella destroys are gone forever, although your body can make new fat cells, and you can “regrow” a double chin if you gain a significant amount of weight.
Anything else I should know?
Kybella is for adults over the age of 18 who want to banish a double-chin. Kybella is not recommended for pregnant women.
You should avoid all NSAIDS (aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil) for 5 days prior to procedure to minimize any possibility of bruising. Eating pineapple, taking Bromelain or Arnica supplements is also helpful.
