Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella® is a cosmetic injection that contains a synthetic form of bile, which is a substance made in your body that helps you digest fat. The synthetic bile, known as deoxycholic acid, targets the unwanted fat cells under your chin and lower face and permanently destroys them so they can no longer store fat, which results in a more contoured look.

The fat under your chin, referred to as submental fat, is a stubborn pocket of fat that may not improve with weight loss. But with Kybella, you can get the profile that matches your body shape.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

Your specialist at All About Me Medical Day Spa determines if you’re a good candidate for Kybella when you come in for a consultation. The experienced aesthetic team takes a patient-focused approach to care and develops plans that help you achieve your goals safely and conservatively.

In addition to Kybella, All About Me Medical Day Spa uses truSculpt® 3D to permanently destroy submental fat. This treatment uses radiofrequency energy to get the desired results.

What can I expect during treatment with Kybella?

Kybella injections use very fine needle points. However, you may experience some discomfort during your treatment.

You may need several injections during your session, depending on the condition of your treatment area and your ultimate aesthetic goals. Your Kybella injection session takes about 15 minutes. To get the best results, you may need 2-3 treatments set at six-week intervals.

You may experience some swelling and numbness at the injection sites, but these side effects should resolve within a week. You should see the results of your injections three months after your final treatment.

How long do results last with Kybella?

Because the synthetic bile found in Kybella injections permanently destroys the fat cells under your chin, the results should last for the rest of your life. However, the injection may not destroy every fat cell under your chin, and you may experience some changes in the fullness of your face if you gain weight.

Thanks to advances in cosmetic treatments, you no longer have to live with extra fullness under your chin, even after you’ve lost weight. To learn more about Kybella and how it can help you, call All About Me Medical Day Spa today.
