Kybella


Introducing KYBELLA – the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of excess chin fat or “double chin.”

Kybella uses deoxycholic acid – a substance that is naturally occurring in the body – to destroy fat cells. Once those fat cells are destroyed, they are unable to store or accumulate fat.

Kybella treatments are usually less than 30 minutes in length and since there is no downtime for most patients, you can resume your normal activities immediately. (See FAQ: “What is the downtime?” for more information.)

Patients usually experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat (aka “submental fat”) below the chin.

The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

How do I know if Kybella is right for me?

Not everyone is a candidate for Kybella. If you are bothered by a double chin, call Facial Aesthetic Concepts today to schedule a free consultation to help determine whether Kybella can help you.

How many treatments will I need?

Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. However, not all patients are alike. During your free Kybella consultation at Facial Aesthetic Concepts, an assessment will be performed to determine how many sessions you will need. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered, spaced no less than one month apart.

How much does it cost?

Because the number of treatments varies by patient, we recommend a Kybella consultation to determine your actual investment.

How much testing has been done?

KYBELLA® has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA.

Does it hurt?

Before administering Kybella, we will numb the area so that there should be no pain or discomfort during the treatment.

What is the downtime?

For most patients, downtime occurs most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities but are likely to have some swelling in and around the treated area.

Is Kybella OK for men?

Yes. Many men are opting for Kybella to reduce the moderate to severe fat below their chin.

What are the side effects?

Though it is unlikely that you will suffer from any serious side effects, the most common are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. KYBELLA ‘s more serious side effects include trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness. These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA. To learn more about Kybella’s side effects, contact our office.

How is Kybella administered?

Kybella is injected under the chin, in and around the areas of excess fat that you would like to have reduced.

What results can I expect?

Kybella helps reduce moderate to severe fat below the chin. Results vary from patient to patient. However, 79% of people treated with Kybella had improved satisfaction with the appearance of the area beneath their chin (compares with 34% of people treated with a placebo) 12 weeks after their last treatment.

How long will the results last?

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA is not expected.
