What is Kybella?
Kybella is the only injectable treatment approved by the FDA to help improve the appearance of a double chin (a.k.a. submental fullness) in adults. Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and helps break down and absorb dietary fat. This molecule essentially causes the fat cells to rupture, which then prompts your body to break them down naturally!
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.
What else should I know about Kybella?
If you’re not convinced yet, how does a 95% satisfaction rating sound? Kybella treatments have been safely performed in rigorous tests involving thousands of volunteers. The treatment is only cleared for use under the chin, and not other areas of the body. You should consult with your doctor before receiving the treatment to make sure that the fullness under your chin is actually fat and not something more serious, such as an enlarged thyroid. Common side effects of a Kybella treatment include soreness, redness or swelling at the injection area—similar to receiving a vaccination.
