How does KYBELLA Work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, 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 physically destroys fat cells, making them unable to accumulate or store fat. Once destroyed, fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through the body’s natural metabolic mechanisms.
KYBELLA is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys stubborn double chin fat, improves your chin and neck profile in quick, non-surgical procedures, and defines and contours your face for a more youthful, healthy-looking appearance
What Is a KYBELLA Cosmetic Treatment Like?
Injected over a series of office visits, KYBELLA is a safe, effective way to remove unwanted fullness beneath the chin which can cause you to appear older or heavier than you actually are. The injection process takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes here in our state-of-the art office.
- Pre-treatment recommendations: Please let us know about all of the medications you take, including prescriptions and any over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements—especially if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine). If you have any questions, contact the office for clarification or consult with your pharmacist.
- Post-treatment recommendations: Keep your head above your heart for a minimum of 12 hours or until the following morning; sleeping on two pillows is recommended. When bending over, it is important to bend at the knees and keep your head up. Refrain from exercise or any activity that increases your heart rate or blood pressure.
