How Does Kybella® Work?

It’s no secret that many cosmetic treatments are available that promise double chin reduction. However, one of the leading cosmetic treatments that produce excellent fat reducing results is Kybella®.

Kybella® is an injectable product offered by Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead’s expert team. Learn more below about Kybella® and how it works.

Glendale Kybella

What Is Kybella®?

Kybella® targets moderate to severe submental fat below the chin. It’s a  non-surgical and minimally-invasive injectable treatment that reduces the “double chin” effect that some people experience.

Kybella® is also FDA-approved for your peace of mind, and it does an excellent job of destroying unwanted fat cells. A few weeks after the treatment, the body naturally absorbs the targeted fat cells.

It’s a cost-effective treatment that enables patients to have a more defined jawline and youthful appearance. Kybella® contains a synthesized version of deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the human body that absorbs fat.

How Kybella® Works

The Kybella® treatment works by breaking down unwanted submental fat at the injection sites. Each injection gets completed using a tiny needle, and only a minute amount of Kybella® gets injected.

When the targeted fat cells get destroyed by the deoxycholic acid in Kybella®, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Further treatment sessions aren’t required once you reach your desired cosmetic goal.

The number of treatment sessions you need will depend on the severity of your submental fat. Each session gets conducted approximately one month apart, and you won’t need any more than six treatment sessions in total.

Benefits of Kybella®

The most significant benefit of Kybella® is that it’s a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. Each treatment session only takes a few minutes to complete, and you’re free to continue with the rest of your day after your treatment.

Another advantage of Kybella® is how there is no downtime. That means you won’t need to spend time recovering at home or book time off work because there is no surgery involved. Kybella® is only an injectable treatment.

Lastly, Kybella® is a safe treatment for all adults aged 18 years or older. Anyone experiencing a “double chin” can consider Kybella® as a viable cosmetic solution to the problem.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?

You could be an excellent candidate for Kybella® if you’re an adult experiencing excess submental fat under your chin. It’s a safe, FDA-approved injectable treatment that boasts minimal to no side effects for most people.

Kybella® is likely a good treatment option for you if unwanted fat under your chin shows no signs of diminishing despite leading an otherwise healthy lifestyle such as eating a balanced diet and doing lots of regular exercise.

You should avoid Kybella® if you have an infection at the injection site, have had surgery or cosmetic treatments to your face, neck, or chin, are pregnant, or are nursing.
