KYBELLA® MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
You don’t want to have surgery
You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
ALSO USED TO TREAT
Inner knee fat
Lower buttock fatty folds
Lower belly bulge
The general rule of thumb: if you can pinch it, you can treat it.
How KYBELLA® works?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH KYBELLA®?
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
HOW IS KYBELLA® ADMINISTERED?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
HOW MANY KYBELLA®TREATMENT SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including
Nerve injury in the jaw (which can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness)
Injection site problems including: bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area
THE MOST COMMON SIDE EFFECTS OF KYBELLA® INCLUDE:
Swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
These are not all the possible side effects of KYBELLA®.
