How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a one-of-a-kind cosmetic injectable that melts away the fat beneath your chin. Many people develop double chins because fat collects in that specific area, and gravity doesn’t help the matter. 

Within Kybella is a chemical called deoxycholic acid, which breaks down fat particles and naturally occurs in your digestive system. Similarly, it can break down the fat cells under your chin.

The team at AnneMarie Aesthetics carefully plans your Kybella procedures and places the injections strategically. They give you specific instructions to follow as you prepare for injections and instructions for later when you leave the office. 

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

Kybella only treats fat in your jawline and chin. If you have a double chin and are interested in getting Kybella, you should schedule a treatment consultation at AnneMarie Aesthetics to discuss your goals and expectations. 

The team goes over your medical history and can tell you if Kybella is a safe and effective option in your case. The treatment might be right for you if:

  • You’re unable or unwilling to get fat removal surgery like liposuction
  • You fully understand the treatment and its time commitment
  • You can maintain a healthy diet and exercise schedule
  • You have good skin elasticity
  • You’re generally healthy

If Kybella doesn’t align with your goals, or if you’re not medically a good candidate, the team at AnneMarie Aesthetics can offer alternative suggestions. 

What should I expect from Kybella?

After your consultation, it’s time to start preparing for your Kybella treatment. You should wash your skin thoroughly before the appointment, and avoid medications that increase bleeding like ibuprofen and acetaminophen. 

The team offers to numb your skin with options like ice or local anesthesia or both. After they numb the area under your chin and jaw, they mark the injection sites. A single Kybella session can involve up to 50 injections, and you may need up to six sessions to get the results you want. The team personalizes your care plan according to your goals. 

The results you get from Kybella are long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise to keep from gaining significant weight.
