Kybella® May help improve your chin profile
Do you have some extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called submental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin.”
If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce submental fullness, also known as double chin, KYBELLA® may be right for you. KYBELLA® is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many Kybella® Treatment sessions will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your Refine aesthetic specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In some cases, the combination of CoolSculpting and KYBELLA® are used in conjunction to obtain optimal results. Based on your situation, we develop a customized treatment plan using either one or both modalities.
The most common side effects of Kybella® are:
Swelling, pain, numbness, bruising and/or redness at injection site, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. In some individuals the swelling can be significant and last for 5-7 days.
How soon will I see results with Kybella®?
Results of KYBELLA® may be visible at 4-6 weeks, but full treatment results will be seen at 4-7 weeks after your final treatment.
