When you look in the mirror, are you constantly staring at that double chin? KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injection to improve the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness. This product, made of deoxycholic acid, is injected under a patient’s chin to destroy fat cells in order to minimize the appearance of your double chin.* This procedure typically takes about two treatments, lasting about 20 minutes each.
How KYBELLA® Works
KYBELLA® has an active ingredient that aids in the destruction of fat cells.* This product is indicated for use to the area under the chin, called submental fat, and also, more commonly known as a “double chin.” Does this stubborn area bother you? If so, maybe it’s time to try KYBELLA®.
KYBELLA® should always be administered by a health care provider.
Before the Procedure: Prior to injections, your provider will mark the area for injections and apply a temporary grid to facilitate equal spacing between injection sites. In addition, ice packs may be used to help minimize any discomfort you may experience. Dr. Weiler’s Physician Assistants, and the staff at Weiler Plastic Surgery, will make your time with us as easy and comfortable as possible throughout the entire process.
The Procedure: At each treatment session, a series of small injections are administered under the skin to improve problem areas below the chin.* KYBELLA® is a simple, non-surgical treatment, and there is minimal recovery or downtime. Each treatment should be spaced at least one month apart.
After The Procedure
Immediately following injections, it is best to avoid strenuous exercise or alcohol. You may use ice around the injection sites. In addition, your health care provider may discuss avoiding using any NSAIDS, such as Motrin or ibuprofen, for a day or so to help reduce downtime.
Results are not immediate. The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness at the treatment site.
