How precisely does KYBELLA break down fat cells? Discover the answer below.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to reduce moderate to severe fat below the chin, commonly known as a double chin.  It contains a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a chemical the body naturally produces to help break down and absorb fat from food.

How KYBELLA Works?

KYBELLA breaks down fat cells when injected into the fat beneath the chin, resulting in a discernible decrease in fullness. Below is a summary of the steps involved in the procedure:

  • Injection: A qualified healthcare provider administers KYBELLA injections directly into the targeted area below the chin.
  • Fat Cell Destruction: Deoxycholic acid, the active component of KYBELLA, causes fat cells’ cell membranes to burst.
  • Metabolism and Elimination: Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body naturally metabolizes the fat and eliminates it through the lymphatic system.
  • Multiple Sessions: Most patients require multiple treatment sessions for optimal results. Typically, patients receive two to four sessions spaced four to six weeks apart.
  • Gradual Results: Over the following weeks and months, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in the contour of your chin.

Is KYBELLA Right for You?

KYBELLA may be an ideal solution if you’re bothered by the appearance of a double chin and are seeking to enhance your facial symmetry without undergoing surgery. However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if KYBELLA is suitable for you based on your medical history and aesthetic goals.
