Kybella® is an FDA-approved injection used to remove submental fat in the chin area, often referred to as a “double chin.” The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin Kybella® targets fat cells for removal.
How Does Kybella Work? When Will I See Results?
Kybella® is administered through a series of injections; the total treatment time takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The number of injections you’ll need depends on the severity of the chin fat. Most patients won’t need more than six injections (each spaced one month apart) to see ideal results. This means results are not immediate. It can take 6 months or more to see full results. However, many patients do start to see some results after the second treatment. On the bright side, results, once seen, are long-lasting. Fat cells that are removed will not come back.
Trials showed that nearly 80 percent of those treated with Kybella® noticed a reduction of their submental fat and thus had improved satisfaction about their appearance.
