Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment for submental fat under the chin, known as a double chin. Through repeated treatments, fat cells are destroyed to eliminate the appearance of a double chin. When clients come to James Christian Cosmetics, they often have a few questions about the treatment, and we wanted to answer them here.
Am I a candidate for Kybella?
Kybella is not right for everyone. The following are what can help you understand whether it’s right for you.
- You’re bothered by the fat underneath your chin.
- You believe your double chin makes you look older or heavier.
- You’re not interested in having surgery.
- Despite eating a healthy diet and exercise, your double chin still exists.
What is in Kybella?
The formula is made up of synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally occurring and breaks down and absorbs fat. When this is injected directly under the chin, fat cells are destroyed. With a reduced number of fat cells in that area, it becomes smaller revealing a more prominent chin.
How many treatments does it take?
Only a specialist can assess and identify the number of treatments needed to eliminate the submental fat under the chin. Treatment can be administered up to 6 times with a month in between treatments.
Most people see results after two to four treatments, depending on how much fat is under the chin.
Are there any side effects?
Bruising, hair loss, open sores, damage to the tissue and cell death are possible but are rare. All side effects resolve on their own within several days.
The most common side effects are redness, pain, numbness and bruising at the injection site.
How long will the results last?
The treatment eliminates fat cells, and once they are gone, they are gone forever.
How much does it cost?
The full price of Kybella depends on the number of treatments needed to achieve the client’s desired results. James Christian Cosmetics often has specials on the treatments, so check the promotions page often if you’re interested in taking advantage of the savings.
