How Effective is Kybella®?
Many of us feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about the appearance of a double chin, also known as submental fullness. Some people inherit the tendency to have a double chin, while others develop one as fat naturally accumulates in this area over time. Regardless of where it came from, Kybella® can help make your double chin go away.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® uses deoxycholic acid, a molecule that breaks down the membranes of fat cells. Our body uses this molecule in our digestive system to help us break down fat. When injected into the submental area, Kybella® targets fat cells, breaking them up. Over time, the body removes these fat cells, leaving the area slimmer and more contoured.
How Effective is Kybella®?
Over a series of treatments, Kybella® is very effective. In one study, over 80% of people reported that they saw a significant improvement in their appearance. Other studies report similar results, with over 70% of people experiencing significant benefits. The benefits increase over the course of several treatments, with most people needing up to six sessions for maximum fat removal.
What Results Will I See With Kybella®?
You will see results within about twelve weeks of your first session. Results continue to improve for up to a year as the body continues to remove fat cells and your skin adjusts to its new contours. You will see a significant decrease in submental fat and a shrinking of your double chin, giving you a more contoured neckline, firmer jaw, and more youthful appearance.
Because fat cells do not grow back, Kybella®’s results last indefinitely. We recommend that you maintain your general weight to keep your results looking the same. However, fat removed by Kybella® has disappeared, and you will not see it again.
How Long Will the Swelling Last With Kybella®?
Swelling occurs for most people who get Kybella® treatments. This occurs as the treatment goes to work on the fat cells. Swelling often lasts about a month. Other effects, such as bruising and redness, will also fade within a few weeks. We recommend at least four weeks between Kybella® treatments to allow the treatment time to do its work and for the swelling to go away.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
Most people can have Kybella® treatment. If you have submental fullness or a double chin and want a non-surgical treatment, consider Kybella®. You may not be a good candidate if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or plan to be. People planning to have any type of facial surgery should discuss this during their consultation.
