Kybella Double chin Removal

by | Mar 14, 2019 | Kybella, Procedures

What is Kybella?

Kybella (deoxycholic acid) distributed by Allergan, the company that makes Botox and Juvederm, is a prescription medicine injected in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” Kybella may also be used to improve the appearance of bra fat found on the side of the underarm.

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.

How Does It Work?

Kybella is injected into the fat beneath your chin, where it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The procedure takes about 10 minutes to perform and the results are visible by 6 weeks after. A total of three treatments is usually necessary.

What are the Side Effects?

The most common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area

Mina Notes: Kybella can be used for the fat around the belly button as well as love handles. It depends on how loose the skin is. However, it does tend to tighten the skin a little bit. Viora can also tighten skin so see viora on the website or online.
