How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella is a specialized injectable procedure designed to remove fat under the chin and jowls. Instead of using surgical techniques like liposuction, our board-certified dermatologists can expertly inject the treatment solution into the fat with precision, and melt it away over time.

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is naturally present in the human body and plays an important role in breaking down fats. When used in Kybella, this acid works to safely break down the membranes and contents of fat cells. As these cells are removed, the body’s natural processes expells them from the treatment area indefinitely.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

A typical Kybella treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes to perform by our board-certified dermatologists. The use of ice packs, ibuprofen and lidocaine make the procedure comfortable.

What Results Will I See?*

It takes a minimum of 2 treatments to appreciate results. Most patients will achieve their desired results within 3 months after their 3rd or 4th treatment. Treatments are performed about 8 weeks apart.

Is There Any Downtime?

All patients should expect swelling in the treated area. This is most dramatic in the first 3 days after the first procedure. Swelling will steadily decrease but may still be subtly noticeable weeks post-treatment. Tenderness and numbness in the treated area are very common and can last weeks. Redness and firmness in the area are also common. Bruising is possible and will generally resolve in a week.
