Kybella® Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved prescription injection for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fullness, which is the stubborn pocket of fat under the chin. 

Kybella contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. Your body makes deoxycholic acid to help emulsify and digest fat. When injected into the fat under your chin, the deoxycholic acid  breaks down the fat cells. Your body then removes them from the area, leaving you with a slimmer profile.

Am I a candidate for Kybella?

Ms. Salarda conducts a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you’re a candidate for Kybella injections. If you have extra fat under your chin and you’re looking for ways to get rid of the fat without surgery, then Kybella might be right for you. 

Kybella is only recommended for adults 18 years of age and older. You may not be a candidate for the injection if you have an infection, a bleeding disorder, you’re pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant, or you’re breastfeeding.

What happens during Kybella injections?

Ms. Salarda reviews the details of your Kybella injections at your consultation. Injections usually take less than 30 minutes. However, she may administer several injections of Kybella under your chin during your session.

There’s no downtime following Kybella injections, and you can resume your usual activities after your treatment. 

However, you may have some pain, redness, and swelling under your chin following the injections. Ms. Salarda may suggest you wear a compression garment under your chin to minimize swelling.

Ms. Salarda may recommend a series of injections to get the best results. For maximum results, she may suggest up to six treatments set at one-month intervals. However, some people get good results after two sessions.  

What type of results can I expect from Kybella?

You may start to see improvements in your profile about two to four months after starting your Kybella injections. With the cosmetic injection, the skin under your chin tightens, and the fat slowly disappears.

Once the fat cells are gone, they won’t come back. Your Kybella injection results are permanent.
