BOTOX® is everywhere and you’ve recently read up on the magic that is HydraFacial®, but what in the world is KYBELLA®?
We’ve got the lowdown on this fat-fighting treatment including answers to your most important questions.
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA is an injectable compound containing deoxycholic acid, a molecule your body already makes to help breakdown and improve the absorption of dietary fat. Used therapeutically, those same compounds can be used to target submental fat, also known as a double chin.
Am I a good candidate for KYBELLA?
Only your doctor can decide if you would benefit from KYBELLA, but generally speaking we look for patients to meet these minimum requirements:
- Have a desire to reduce submental fat
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Be in good overall health
Does KYBELLA really work?
There are a lot of crazy treatments out there promising even crazier results, but KYBELLA comes backed by scientific evidence in the form of more than 20 clinical studies encompassing 1600 patients. An impressive 68.2% of patients in two of those studies say they saw some or moderate improvement in the appearance of their double chin while 16% say they experienced a great deal of improvement.
How long will it take to see results?
Depending on how quickly your body responds, you may see the results of your KYBELLA treatments in as little as two to four sessions. Some patients see results even sooner. Check out the KYBELLA before and after gallery to see this non-surgical fat-reduction option in action.
My double chin is gone! Is it going to come back?
Anything is possible, but in this case it’s unlikely your double chin is going to make a reappearance. That’s because KYBELLA permanently destroys the fat cells it touches and those fat cells are no longer able to store fat. No fat storage, no double chin! Even if you gain weight, the impact to your chin area should be minimal.
