Kybella is an FDA approved injectable (deoxycholic acid) that permanently destroys fat cells. It is administered by a medical provider to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat under the chin, otherwise known as submental fat.
After your initial evaluation, Kybella will be administered by a medical professional. The injection process takes roughly 10 minutes. The number of treatments varies from patient to patient, but the average is anywhere from 2-4 treatments. Some patients are satisfied with their final results after just the first treatment. If multiple treatments are needed, they will be spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Most patients describe the injection as a slight sting, but nothing painful. After your Kybella treatment, you can expect some swelling and possible minor bruising.
