Kybella® Q & A

The Beauty Medics

What causes a double chin?

You may have a double chin due to aging, weight gain, or genetics. Traditional fat-loss methods of diet and exercise can’t target the chin directly. In the past, the only way to deal with a double chin was through surgery. KYBELLA offers a nonsurgical solution to your submental fullness, or chin fat.

 

How does KYBELLA work?

KYBELLA is a quick and minimally invasive way to get rid of your double chin and excess chin fat. It destroys the fat cells at the injection sites. Your body naturally disposes of the destroyed fat cells through your lymphatic system. The result is a better chin profile.

KYBELLA contains the active ingredient, deoxycholic acid. This acid occurs naturally in your body and aids in the breakdown of fat.

 

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

If you’re bothered by the appearance of fullness under your chin, consider KYBELLA treatments. The excess fat may age you, or make you look heavier than you are. KYBELLA is especially effective in people who eat well and exercise, but can’t seem to reduce their double chin.

 

What should I expect at a treatment session?

A treatment session takes just 15 minutes. The team at The Beauty Medics examines the area under and around your chin to determine if the injections are right for you. They also tailor a treatment plan for you, depending on the amount of excess fat you have under your chin and your profile goals. Many people need multiple treatments.

Dr. Bokhari and his team administer multiple injections under your chin, placed specifically to get you the results you desire.

 

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you need depends on your aesthetic goals and the amount of excess fat you have under your chin. People report seeing a notable difference after just two to four treatments, while the majority of patients undergo about six treatments to get optimal results.

 

What are the side effects of KYBELLA?

The most common side effects are temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the areas that received the injections. You may have numbness and hardness around the treatment areas, too. These symptoms should resolve within a few days.
