Kybella is an innovative fat-reduction treatment that is safe, effective, and fast. At Skin Refine MedSpa in Sunnyvale, CA, our expert team is trained in delivering Kybella injections for optimal results. This article will discuss how Kybella works, what it treats, what to expect during the procedure, and the results that can be achieved.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella works by utilizing deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. This molecule breaks down and destroys fat cells, making it the perfect solution for targeting unwanted fat under the chin. When injected into the treatment area, Kybella destroys the fat cells, which are then naturally metabolized and eliminated from the body. This process results in a reduction of submental fullness, also known as “double chin.” Kybella is a safe and effective solution because deoxycholic acid is already found in the body, making it a natural substance for the body to process.

What Does Kybella Treat?

Kybella is specifically designed to treat submental fullness or the appearance of a double chin. The treatment is ideal for individuals seeking a non-surgical solution for this common cosmetic concern. It is essential to note that Kybella is not designed to target weight loss and works best in small treatment areas.

The Kybella Procedure

The Kybella procedure is simple and quick, typically taking only 15–20 minutes to complete. During the treatment, the injector will place the needle into various areas under the chin and along the jawline to deliver the Kybella solution. The number of injections varies depending on the type of fat targeted and the desired correction level. This is a minimally painful treatment but we can apply a topical numbing cream to help you feel more comfortable.

Kybella Results

Kybella treatment requires virtually no downtime or recovery. The only side effects you might have are mild swelling and bruising that will improve within a few days. It is important to note that results may vary depending on the individual. The treatments required will depend on the amount of fat targeted and the desired correction level. However, most patients expect a significant reduction in submental fullness after their first treatment, with optimal results achieved after 2–6 treatments.
