Kybella Q & A

Kybella EncinoWhat is Kybella®?

Kybella® is a cosmetic injection made from deoxycholic acid and is the first injectable treatment approved by the FDA which can contour and improve the appearance of submental fullness, more frequently called a double chin. Patients can work with the doctor’s at Dr. A. Spa to create a treatment plan which is tailored to the specific patient’s desired chin profile. During the Kybella® treatment sessions, your doctor will inject Kybella® into the fat beneath the chin. Usually, multiple injections will be needed. Several patients experience visible results in about 2 to 4 treatments. Up to 6 treatment sessions can be used and should be spaced out at least a month apart from each one another.

How does Kybella® work?

The active ingredient used in Kybella® injections is deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally-occurring molecule found in the body and it helps with the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. When the medication is injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® eliminates the fat cells found there. Once these cells are eliminated, they can no longer absorb or store fat.

How many treatments will I need?

Your doctor at Dr. A. Spa will work to tailor the Kybella® treatment program for your desires and this will determine how many injections are needed. This will be based on the patient’s current and desired chin profile. Two to four treatments are the standard though for some more injections may be scheduled. If the patient wants a more dramatic change, more injections and more appointments may be necessary. Your doctor will advise you on how many sessions and injections will be needed to get the best outcome.

How long will the results last?

When injected into the fat underneath a patient’s chin, Kybella® terminates those fat cells. This means that they have expired and they will not come back. After the physical outcome is seen, using the Kybella® injections again is usually not needed. For more information, contact Dr. A. Spa to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of the expert physicians.
