How Does Kybella® Work?
The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, one of the secondary bile acids secreted by the liver to metabolize fat from food. Purified and concentrated for cosmetic use in Kybella®, this same acid first breaks down and then emulsifies fat underneath the chin, allowing for the body’s natural process of reduction to remove the deposits and restore a firm and contoured appearance.
It may take two to four treatment sessions for results from Kybella® to be fully realized. When needed, Dr. Peña can administer as many as six treatments over the course of several months.* How many treatments you will require depends on various factors unique to your makeup and can be discussed in detail during your initial Kybella® consultation. Once treatment is completed, your results will be lasting. Fat cells destroyed through Kybella® injections cannot come back.
Is Kybella® Safe?
Kybella® is FDA-approved for the reduction of fat deposits underneath the chin, but may not be right for every patient. While the safety and efficacy of this nonsurgical treatment are well-documented, some side-effects are possible. Most Kybella® side-effects are temporary, but serious issues such as nerve damage are possible. Dr. Peña will openly and honestly discuss these and other potential risks during your initial consultation, enabling you to make an informed decision about your health and your appearance.
Is Kybella® Right for My Needs?
Kybella® is a nonsurgical injectable double chin treatment. It has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of submental fullness, more commonly known as double chin. While there are various factors that can lead to the more rounded or oblique appearance caused by this condition, there is little-to-nothing that can be done by way of diet and exercise to completely be free of the problem. In the past, this has made surgical treatments such as liposuction the best option for men and women with submental fullness, but Kybella® has changed that by offering a nonsurgical, yet highly effective way to target the double chin and produce a more contoured and youthful look.
