Kybella Q&A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that eliminates fat cells underneath your chin to tighten it and make you look younger. Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat. 

Once destroyed, fat cells underneath your chin no longer accumulate and store fat, so the results are permanent if you maintain a healthy weight.

Is Kybella right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for Kybella injections, your doctor examines the area underneath your chin. They review your medical history and desired outcome. You’re likely a good candidate for Kybella if you:

  • Are at or near your ideal weight
  • Are bothered by excess chin fat
  • Feel self-conscious
  • Don’t want to have surgery
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Get regular exercise

Your specialist tailors each treatment to give you the best outcome based on your aesthetic goals.

What should I expect during a Kybella treatment?

When you arrive at IMAC Med Spa for a Kybella treatment, you relax in a comfortable chair. Your provider can first numb the treatment area if you’d like. 

They administer multiple small injections in the skin underneath your chin. The number of injections you require depends on the amount of fat present in the treatment area. Each procedure might last about 15-20 minutes.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After a Kybella treatment, you can expect temporary bruising, swelling, redness, or numbness underneath your chin. Ice the area as needed to reduce swelling. However, there’s no downtime after the injections, so you can resume normal activities right away.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Your provider might recommend multiple Kybella treatments to give you the best outcome. Every patient is different, so the number of treatments needed varies based on your goals and the amount of fat present under your chin. 

Your IMAC Med Spa specialist personalizes your treatment with regards to your treatment goals, which might consist of up to six sessions spaced at least one month apart.
