KYBELLA® is a prescription injectable medication that works to reduce moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. KYBELLA uses deoxycholic acid to break down the fat cells in your body and produce the desired results. Deoxycholic acid is produced naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When provided as a medical treatment with KYBELLA, it works to destroy fat cells and prevent the ability of the cells in the treated area to store fat. This means that you will not need to return to our office for further treatment after completing your treatment sessions.
Our dentist will carefully examine the area under and around your chin before providing treatment and discuss your esthetic goals with you. Once we have created a treatment plan, we will begin your KYBELLA injections. Your treatment sessions will occur at one-month intervals. Each session will take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Most patients require two to four sessions, and you should not receive more than six total treatments. You can expect to see visible results from your KYBELLA treatment after about four to eight weeks.
You may experience some numbness, swelling or bruising under your chin after your treatment. These effects are temporary and will dissipate within a few days.
