KYBELLA™ is the ﬁrst and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. The treatment destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin.
Treatments here at Florida Skin Center take generally about 15-20 minutes, minimizing the impact on your schedule. For most patients, downtime was minimal and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. The most common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
Many patients treated with Kybella experienced visible contouring of the their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
How Does Kybella Work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
