What Does Kybella® Treat?

Kybella® is an injection that is used to treat excessive fat around the jawline and underneath the chin, sometimes known as submental fullness. 

Kybella® works by dissolving fat underneath the chin with basic injections. Once the fat has disappeared, it has gone forever, resulting in a better and more profile. Kybella® is used for the area under the chin and the jawline, but it is also now being used on the body.

While Kybella® is well-known for its ability to reduce fat below the chin, some doctors are now using it ‘off-label’ to treat fat bulges on other areas of the body. It is often used off-label to reduce armpit pooches, bra fat, and love handles.

What Kybella® is Made Of

Kybella® is made from a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule to metabolize dietary fat in the intestine. 

As deoxycholic acid is already present in the body and is the body’s way of absorbing fat, Kybella® is a more concentrated amount of deoxycholic acid that can improve the appearance of severe fat below the chin.

Kybella® is a pioneering treatment in the fact that this naturally occurring molecule can remove stubborn double chins forever, but it’s just using what you already have. 

Kybella® Results and Recovery

It takes a few weeks to see the full results of Kybella®. If you have poor skin laxity, it may take longer to see the results. If you don’t see the results you expect, you may also need to combine your treatment with an extra skin tightening solution. 

But the great thing about Kybella® is that the results can be permanent, as long as you follow a healthy lifestyle, which includes a good skincare routine, a healthy diet, exercise, and adequate hydration.

Benefits of Kybella®

Kybella® can bring many different benefits. When you compare Kybella® to other cosmetic treatments, Kybella® provides noticeable results that stay permanent with the right care. 

Your jawline is more defined, resulting in a more youthful appearance, but without the need to “top up” your injections like other procedures. 

With long-lasting and noticeable results without needing surgery, it gives you the results you need after one treatment. 

Compared to invasive treatments, Kybella® is virtually pain-free, so you experience very little pain and discomfort.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?

You are a good candidate for Kybella® if you have jawline or chin fat that is not considered as “excessive.” For example, if you have a double chin that you are self-conscious of, you can be an ideal candidate for the Kybella® procedure. 

The ideal candidate for Kybella® is a patient who has good or moderate skin laxity, which means your skin bounces back upon the removal of fat tissue.

Kybella® is an amazing treatment that can get rid of unsightly double chins forever. If you are looking for a treatment to bring about the end of chin fat or an unsightly jawline, Total Dermatology provides this pioneering treatment.
