Kybella is an FDA approved injectable that is minimally invasive and non-surgical to treat submental fullness. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps break down the cell membranes of fat cells. The target fat cells get dissolved and removed gradually in a course of several weeks and will eventually get cleared by the lymphatic and circulatory systems, then excreted as waste products.

The treatments are given through a series of small injections with a very thin needle to the treatment area. The procedure takes about 30 minutes with very minimal discomfort. The results can take a few weeks to develop but they are permanent.

The procedure is suitable for adult men and women who have undesirable fullness in the submental area. However, if you are pregnant, nursing, taking a blood thinner medication or have an active infection in the area, it is advised not to receive Kybella treatments.

Kybella | Frequently Asked Questions

Swelling, redness, bruising, pain, and numbness are all common side effects with Kybella. Very rarely, Kybella can cause temporary asymmetries in the movement around the corner of the mouth or changes in swallowing sensation through its effects on nerves. These are temporary, and usually resolve in a few months.

Generally most patients will need 2-4 sessions, with 2-3 vials of Kybella per session. A minimum of two treatment sessions is necessary to achieve optimal results, spacing 4-6 weeks in between sessions.
