KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable product containing a sterile, synthetic deoxycholic acid. This substance is naturally occurring in our bodies where it breaks down and dissolves fat from our diets. Kybella is approved for injections of the fat below the chin.
Who is a good candidate for Kybella treatments?
Kybella is ideal for men and women with excess fat under the chin which makes them look heavier or older than they are and who do not wish to have surgery for it.
How many Kybella treatments will I need?
Each patient is unique so an initial consultation can answer that question. Typically, most patients will need 2-4 treatments to achieve their desired effect and final results. The treatments need to be spaced 4-6 weeks apart to allow time for the tissues to heal and not damage the new collagen the body will produce in the healing process.
How long does Kybella last?
Once the fat cells are destroyed by Kybella, the results should be permanent. The treatments are done as a series but once the series is completed, no further treatments are anticipated.
What does Kybella cost?
Kybella is dispensed by the vial and the cost of treatments will depend on the number of vials for each treatment as well as the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the desired effects. Signing up for the series may offer some discount in addition to the Allergan Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program. Your consultant can give you an estimate of cost for your personalized treatment plan.
What are the side effects of Kybella?
The side effects commonly seen after Kybella injections include, localized pain and swelling. There may also be some redness, bruising, tenderness, numbness or hardness at the treatment site. These effects will resolve over the next few days or up to a few weeks post-treatment.
