What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment for submental fullness, i.e., excess fat tissues underneath the skin. With a few simple injections, we can dissolve excess fat cells underneath your chin to eliminate a double chin, making your chin and jawline look more chiseled. If you are self-conscious about your double chin, Kybella injections might be the appropriate treatment. Cohen Medical Aesthetics provides highly personalized Kybella treatments to eliminate a double chin and improve your facial contours.

Kybella corrects the following:

  • Excess fat cells under the chin
  • Double chin or submental fullness

Kybella: eliminate excess fat cells under the chin

Kybella is a cosmetic injection with synthetic deoxycholic acid as the primary ingredient. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring and biodegradable substance that facilitates the dissolution and absorption of excess subcutaneous fat cells in your body. When injected under the chin, Kybella encourages your body to kill the unwanted fat cells, following which they are expelled from the body as waste. The entire fat absorption and expulsion process takes time, so the results appear gradually over several months.

Kybella: side effects and recovery

Kybella produces minimal post-treatment side effects, such as mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites. You may experience a little more discomfort if you receive a high volume of injections in one session. The side effects usually dissipate within a few days. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a few days.

Kybella: onset and longevity of results

Kybella stimulates natural fat dissolution and resorption, so the results appear gradually over several weeks and months. Your chin will start looking slimmer after a few weeks, but most patients need several sessions for optimal results. Depending on your condition, you may need 3 to 6 Kybella sessions spaced a month apart. The final results will appear a month after the final session. The results are permanent.
