KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of mild to moderate fat below the chin (submental fat). KYBELLA® is similar to a natural occurring molecule in the human body, deoxycholic acid, that assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat.
After you achieve your desired results with KYBELLA®treatments, those fat cells are destroyed and gone for good.
Most people are candidates for KYBELLA®. Those who are in good health, but have mild to moderate submental fat can reap the benefits of the non-invasive cosmetic treatment.
With KYBELLA® treatments, recovery is generally quick and uneventful. A patient can expect minor bruising and swelling that only lasts a few days. There can be mild discomfort at the injection sites, but is easily treated with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Most patients see noticeable results after 2-3 treatment sessions. The number of treatments required will depend on the amount of fat being eradicated.
Clinical trials have proven that once you achieve your desired results with KYBELLA® treatments, those fat cells are destroyed and gone for good.
You may be eligible to combine other treatments with KYBELLA®, but it is generally recommended to wait a few months between procedures.
