Kybella Treatment Massachusetts

KYBELLA® injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat). 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, so your results are permanent.

What causes a “double chin”?

There is a layer of fat that pads the area around the chin that keeps the chin protected. With age this area begins to increase. This often makes a person appear overweight or older, even when the rest of the body is sleek and toned. Aside from aging, submental fullness can be a result of lack of exercise, a poor diet, weak chin muscles, or genetics. Kybella is the only FDA-approved option that is non-surgical and capable of getting rid of a double chin, safely and effectively.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients require 2 to 3 sessions for optimal results. 2 vials are generally used per session. Each treatment is spaced out approximately 6 to 8 weeks. Results may vary and the exact Kybella dosage is patient specific and will be determined during consultation for best outcomes.

What are the side effects of this treatment?

The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
