Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the only treatment of its kind: An FDA-approved injectable that improves the appearance of submental fat, commonly called a double chin. With a series of Kybella injections, you can selectively destroy fat cells to enhance your forward and profile views dramatically. 

Kybella’s active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which duplicates a substance that you produce naturally. Deoxycholic acid helps break fat down in your body. When it’s concentrated and placed precisely in fat cells, it destroys the target cells permanently. 

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

If you have a double chin or fullness in your chin area, and you’d prefer to avoid surgery, you’re likely an excellent candidate for Kybella. Kybella patients must be 18 or older. 

What do Kybella injections feel like?

Dr. Straface applies a topical numbing agent before Kybella injections to keep you comfortable. You might experience some mild stinging and pain during treatment, but most patients tolerate Kybella injections quite well because your provider uses a very fine needle.

How many Kybella treatments do I need?

Feel Ideal 360 recommends a specific treatment plan for your needs. Most patients have between two and four treatment sessions, but you could need up to six treatments. Your treatments are at least one month apart. 

What can I expect after Kybella treatment?

Unlike surgery, Kybella doesn’t require major downtime. It’s normal to have swelling and mild bruising in the treatment area for several days, but ice application and over-the-counter pain relievers resolve these issues effectively. 

It takes around 4-6 weeks for the fat cells to break down, so you might not see significant fat reduction until after your second Kybella treatment. 

How long do the results of Kybella last?

Kybella permanently reduces the fat in your double chin. After it destroys your fat cells, they become waste that you eliminate through lymph fluids and blood. Of course, if you gain significant weight, other fat cells could potentially grow and expand into the under chin area. So, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight to prevent this.

To delete your double chin without surgery, Kybella is the perfect solution. Book your appointment online, or call Feel Ideal 360 to arrange your Kybella consultation now.
