Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella®?

Many people are discontent or embarrassed by submental fullness — the gathering of excess fat underneath the chin. It can be related to genetics, aging, and weight gain.

Kybella is a prescription medicine that’s FDA-approved to decrease the profile and appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin.

Kybella is an injection that targets and destroys the fat cells, with its main active ingredient being synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid naturally occurs in your body and aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella destroys fat cells so they can no longer accumulate or store fat, significantly reducing excess fullness under the chin.

Dr. Dang-Vu creates personalized treatment plans based on the profile of your chin at your initial consultation, where she explains the treatment process and helps you prepare. You’re also encouraged to discuss your expectations and goals in detail at this meeting.

At each quick, in-office treatment, Dr. Dang-Vu administers small injections under your chin. The number of injections you receive depends on the amount of fat you have under your chin and the look you’re trying to achieve.

For optimal results, some people might require multiple treatments — up to six treatments can be administered, spaced about two months apart.

After your treatment, you might experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin, but this is tolerable and subsides quickly.

What are the benefits of Kybella?

Countless patients have experienced impressive results with Kybella injectable treatments. In clinical trials, high percentages of patients had improved satisfaction with the appearance of their face and under the chin just 12 weeks following their last treatment.

Kybella is quick and doesn’t involve surgery or downtime. The in-office treatment only takes around 15-20 minutes.

Kybella destroys the fat cells under your chin and once destroyed, the cells can never store or accumulate fat again. No further treatment is needed once you receive your desired results.

Patients report feeling happier and looking younger based on their improved chin profile.
