What Is Kybella Chin Treatment?

Kybella is a medical treatment that targets fat cells in the chin area, causing them to slowly dissolve over time. Kybella utilizes an acid that is injected into the fatty tissue beneath the chin to destroy fat cells. Since there are no other medical options within the United States for removing fat from this area, Kybella offers an effective alternative to surgery.

After the first injection, it can take up to two months for the results to become noticeable. You may see your double chin begin to shrink after the first treatment, but it may continue reducing over time as your body naturally processes out those fat cells. The majority of patients at our medical spa require more than one session.

The results you see will depend on the amount of Kybella injections given and how much fat is present in your chin area. After multiple Kybella injections, any remaining fat under the chin will be completely gone

Preparing For Kybella Chin Treatment

Before you begin the Kybella chin treatment, it is important to talk with a medical professional to ensure that you are a good candidate for this procedure. Here are a few things you should discuss:

  • Discuss your Kybella chin treatment options with an expert at our med spa

  • Have a healthy diet and avoid smoking prior to your treatment

  • Tell your healthcare provider if you have difficulty swallowing or any bleeding problem

  • Postpone treatment if you are nursing or pregnant, or planning to become pregnant

Otherwise, as a non-surgical procedure, there is little preparation that you need to do before your Kybella treatment beyond washing your face!

What To Expect After Your Kybella Treatment

Kybella chin treatments involve the injection of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally created molecule that can break down fat cells. Due to this process, you will likely experience an injection sensation for about one minute before feeling normal again. You may also notice transient redness or swelling that typically resolves without medical attention within 1-2 days.

Kybella chin treatments typically require between 15-20 minutes, depending on how many injections are needed for your medical condition. Kybella can be administered almost anywhere on the body where fat is present and medical spas often offer this treatment for areas such as double chin reduction. Our medical spa offers Kybella for double chin reduction in the La Mesa area.

Most people require more than one treatment to reach their goals, and it typically takes around six sessions. Once the acid destroys fat cells in the targeted area, no further treatment is needed.

Risks And Side Effects Of Kybella Chin

Kybella has been approved by the FDA. However, medical experts have not fully studied it yet, so you should know that medical experts are aware of the possible side effects associated with this medication.

Common side effects are swollen areas under the chin or neck, bruising, and redness. However, the recovery process is generally short and minor side effects like these typically subside in about one to two weeks.

However, it's important to note that some serious side effects have occurred, and, like any medical procedure, there are risks associated with Kybella. In rare cases, patients have had facial muscle weakness, trouble swallowing, or nerve injury. If you experience any of these side effects, contact a medical professional immediately.
