Goodbye Double Chin!
Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is an FDA approved injection lipolysis procedure used to treat submental fat to get rid of the “double chin.” Most patients have at least two treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, which is the typical duration of swelling.
Topical local anesthesia is used prior to treatment.
What it treats:
Minimal to none
Patients can have up to six treatments to the area under the chin. Your individual anatomy will determine your actual treatment plan.
There is no downtime, but patients may experience swelling, bruising, pain, redness and feel areas of hardness that typically soften with time. During the period of swelling the area can look fuller than it did before treatment, but as the fat cells are disrupted and the inflammation subsides, most patients see results by 6 to 8 weeks after a treatment.
