Kybella Q & A


What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that contains clinical-grade ingredients designed to destroy fat buildup underneath your chin and jawline, known as submental fullness. This in-demand injectable is made up of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which targets fat cells.

Deoxycholic acid breaks stubborn fat cells apart so your body can no longer use them. All fat particles absorb and pass out through waste over time. Any chin fat you lose with Kybella is gone for good — unless you gain weight in the future. 

How long does it take for Kybella to work?

Kybella starts working immediately upon injection, although it takes time for you to see results. You should notice an improvement in your profile and a more defined jawline within as few as 3-4 weeks, with more dramatic results after several months. For optimal results, a series of Kybella treatments from West Derm Center is necessary. 

How many Kybella treatments do I need?

During each Kybella session, you receive up to 50 injections. To ensure each Kybella injection is spaced equally apart for even results, your dermatologist at West Derm Center uses a stencil to mark targeted areas. 

Your dermatologist then carefully administers your Kybella injections in an organized pattern. An entire Kybella service takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes and, with no downtime necessary, you can go about your normal activities afterward. Minor redness and swelling are common for a short period.

For optimal results with Kybella and to effectively melt away your double chin, the dermatologists at West Derm Center usually recommend about 2-4 sessions. You can safely undergo up to six Kybella treatments.

Are Kybella injections painful?

The thought of getting multiple injections may seem daunting, especially in a sensitive area like under your chin and throughout your neck. But the needles are tiny and cause little discomfort. To minimize any stinging, your dermatologist at West Derm Center could recommend arriving early to apply a topical numbing medication. 

You can undergo a Kybella submental fullness treatment at West Derm Center and enhance your jawline without surgery. Book your Kybella session online or by phone with any office today.
