KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. 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. KYBELLA® is the procedure of choice for double chin treatment in Miami.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How is KYBELLA® administered?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained medical practitioner. 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 many KYBELLA® treatment sessions will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your medical practitioner 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.
Will I need time to recover?
After a KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your medical practitioner if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or injection site problems, such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your medical practitioner if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.
