Kybella Q&A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a prescription medicine that’s injected into the moderate to severe fat beneath your chin, reducing your “submental fullness.” This fullness isn’t necessarily a result of being overweight. It can be present even if you diet and exercise regularly.

Whether you’ve had this “double chin” your whole life due to genetics or it has developed with age or weight gain, Kybella can help to improve your appearance and profile.

How does Kybella work?

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid naturally exists in your body, and it helps to break down and absorb your dietary fat. Once injected, Kybella destroys the fat cells under your chin, resulting in a noticeable reduction in its fullness.

What should you expect from a Kybella treatment?

First, Dr. Modlin examines the area under and around your chin. Once he has assessed your profile, he customizes a plan to meet your aesthetic goals and achieve your desired profile.

During the actual procedure, Dr. Modlin administers multiple small injections under your chin. The exact number of injections you receive depends on the amount of fat being treated.

It’s common to experience a little swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treatment area following the procedure.

How many treatment sessions does Kybella require?

The number of treatments you’ll need varies based on your specific condition and aesthetic goals, but you should never need more than six sessions. Typically, your treatment sessions last about 15-20 minutes each and are spread a month apart.

Once Dr. Modlin achieves your desired look, you won’t require further treatment; after Kybella damages the fat cells under your skin, they can no longer store or accumulate fat in the future.

Submental fullness can be just as bothersome as unwanted wrinkles around your eyes. Now is the time to boost your confidence and get rid of your double chin once and for all — call Dr. Modlin or schedule an appointment online to discuss your treatment options.
