Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that is injected into your chin and neck area to dissolve fat cells. It is known to easily “melt” the extra fat away in these areas. Kybella was approved by the U.S. Food and Administration in 2015. 

The key ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. When this is applied to an area, it destroys the fat cells permanently so that those cells will no longer accumulate or store fat. If you’re interested in tightening up your chin and neck area, Kybella may be for you! Kybella can be done in as little as 15 minutes and is fairly painless and fairly easy. 

How Does Kybella Work? 

Deoxycholic acid is a type of bodily fluid that is essential to the digestive system for fat absorption. Once the deoxycholic is injected, the acid works to destroy the fat cells in the area so that the area can no longer store fat. 

What makes Kybella work so well is its medical-grade surfactant composition which essentially turns fat cells inside out. Kybella is a great option for people who don’t want to go through surgery, downtime, or aftercare in order to eliminate chin and neck fat. 

Who Is an Ideal Candidate

With Kybella, really anyone can be an ideal candidate! If you want a little more guidance on if you would be a good candidate for Kybella, here are a few traits that make a good candidate:

  • In good health and over the age of 18
  • Have a moderate amount of chin or neck fat
  • Want to avoid surgery that comes with downtime and aftercare
  • Haven’t been able to see results from diet or exercise. 

Although Kybella should be safe for pregnant women since it is a local injection, doctors still recommend waiting until after giving birth to get the treatment. Besides that, anyone who has enough fat in the area can be treated! 

How Many Sessions of Kybella Are Needed?

Kybella does not have instant results which means you’ll need a few sessions to see a difference. Kybella can usually be completed in 3-4 sessions with a month in between each. It is likely that you’ll see results after the second session.

How Long Do Results Last?

Although Kybella is described as permanent fat cell destruction, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll never come back. While the fat in the areas treated will not return, the remaining fat cells that were not treated may expand over time. The best way to avoid this is to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
