How Long Does Kybella® Last?

If a double chin makes you feel self-conscious, you are in good company. A double chin or submental (under the chin) fullness bothers many people, but not everyone feels ready for an invasive procedure like liposuction. Now there’s Kybella®, the first injectable treatment for submental fullness. With Kybella®, you can achieve a slimmer neck and more sculpted chin.

What is Kybella®?

At FACE Skincare~Medical~Wellness, we pride ourselves on being one of the first providers to offer Kybella® in the United States. FDA-approved in 2018, Kybella® offers a noninvasive option for removing your double chin. Before Kybella®, options for improving this area included liposuction and neck lifts, but Kybella® involves no incisions and minimal recovery time. Since up to 68% of people feel self-conscious about their submental fullness, Kybella® can be a valuable new tool for restoring self-confidence. 

How Does Kybella® Work?

Kybella® is injected into your double chin area. Its active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, also occurs naturally in our bodies as part of fat digestion. It works by disrupting the membranes of fat cells, causing them to break down. The body will remove the fat cells over a period of several weeks. Since deoxycholic acid targets fat cells, it causes no damage to the skin or other tissues. 

How Long Does Kybella® Last?

Our bodies do not continue to grow fat cells after a certain age, so fat removal means those fat cells are gone for good. Most people will not need any further treatments after they finish their series of Kybella® injections. However, the fat cells remaining in the area can change if your weight changes, so avoiding weight fluctuations can help maintain your results. 

What Results Will I See From Kybella®?

Most people need between two and four Kybella® treatments to see maximum results. We will space your treatments a month apart. Results start to become visible after three to four weeks as the body filters away the fat cells. They will continue to improve after each treatment session. You will see your double chin fade away, leaving you with a slimmer neckline and more contour around the chin and jawline. 

Is There Any Downtime After Kybella®?

You will experience some swelling that can last for several weeks. Soreness and numbness also occur. All of these will resolve on their own. You can go back to your usual routine immediately after treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?

If you have submental fullness or a double chin, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you will need to wait to have Kybella®, and you should review all your medications and health issues during your consultation.
