KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH KYBELLA®
Before starting treatment, we will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
HOW DOES KYBELLA® WORK?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
HOW IS KYBELLA® ADMIINISTERED?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
HOW MUCH DO KYBELLA INJECTIONS COST?
The price for the first 2 vials is $600 each, and $400 for each additional vial.
HOW MANY KYBELLA TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
WILL I NEED TIME TO RECOVER FROM KYBELLA®
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. This is generally mild and does not keep you from continuing your day to day activities.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include:
Swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
These are not all the possible side effects of KYBELLA®. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
