Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that reduces fat underneath the chin, it takes 15 to 20 minutes per session and uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. The process is to inject deoxycholic acid into the area to destroy fat cells. The best candidate for this procedure is someone over the age of 18 with moderate to severe fat beneath their chin. If you plan to have facial surgery or have a medical condition near the injection site, it is not recommended to have the procedure. Other hindrances to having the procedure done are if you have trouble swallowing, are pregnant, or are nursing. Even though the procedure is non-invasive it is still good to speak to your family doctor and discuss your medical history and see if it is right for you. There is very little preparation, schedule the procedure well before any major events and wash your face properly to help prevent infection. It is also advisable to not take any ibuprofen or acetaminophen which can prevent post-treatment bruising.
Depending on your needs, most people do require more than one treatment conversing with your doctor will help design a specialized treatment plan. Most people see visible results after two to four treatments, once the deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells no further treatment would be required as the fat cells can no longer store fat. It is a permanent solution to no longer storing fat underneath your chin.
