What is Kybella®?

Kybella, also called deoxycholic acid, is an injectable treatment that targets and dissolves small pockets of fat. It’s FDA-approved to treat submental fat, which collects beneath the chin.

While the dreaded “double chin” — a notoriously difficult area to lose fat from — is Kybella’s most popular treatment area, it can also help reduce fat in the arms, knees, and other areas of the body. Kybella offers men and women the opportunity to achieve a more sculpted, defined jawline without the pain or downtime of cosmetic surgery.

How does Kybella work?

When injected into the treatment area, Kybella breaks down the membrane that holds fat cells together, effectively dissolving and destroying them. The cells break down into small enough particles that the body can naturally metabolize and eliminate them through its lymphatic process.

Do Kybella injections hurt?

Most clients find Kybella injections to be tolerable, but Betsy may administer a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Injections take only a few minutes. Many people experience a mild burning sensation that lasts for 15-30 minutes after the injection.

How many Kybella injections will I need?

The number of Kybella injections you need depends on the amount of submental fat you have and your treatment goals. Most people need about 1-4 treatments, spaced one month apart, to achieve their desired results. Betsy can give you a better idea of how many treatments you may need at your initial consultation.

Will Kybella change my face shape?

While Kybella can’t change your face shape, it does enhance your jawline and chin by removing unwanted fat from the submental area. If you’re unhappy with the shape of your jaw, Kybela can deliver a more sculpted and chiseled appearance that looks sleeker and more refined.

Does Kybella ever wear off or are my results permanent?

The fat cells that Kybella destroys can’t return, so your results may be permanent. However, you can gain new fat in the area. Kybella treatments are especially effective when combined with consistent exercise and a healthy diet.

Kybella offers a safe, effective, and easy solution for fat loss. If you’re interested in learning whether Kybella is right for you, Call Blush and Bloom MedSpa today or schedule an appointment online today.
