Kybella® is an FDA approved treatment which reduction fat beneath the chin—also known as a double chin. Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath chin, also known as submental fullness, Kybella targets fat cells for removal.
Most patients receive multiple treatment sessions—given at least 1 month apart. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments. Swelling can be significant for the first 48 hours after the procedure. The deoxycholic acid works over time and you should not expect to see results immediately. A month after the procedure, most people have definite reduction in fat tightening of the skin in the treated area. This continues to improve over the next 3-5 months. Swelling tends to be milder with each subsequent treatment.
