HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?
Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule already present in the body. This medication is administered by small injections into the treatment area. Injection of this medication aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Kybella targets and destroys the fat cells. Once they are destroyed, these cells cannot store or accumulate fat again.
DOES IT HURT?
Our office enhances the patient treatment experience by taking many steps to minimize patient discomfort. Our specially formulated topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment. Additionally, a local anesthetic may be injected to numb the area.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Anesthetic is applied to the site and the treatment area is outlined. Small injections are administered to this area. The smallest needles are used for decrease any discomfort. Patients may experience some side effects after treatment including swelling, bruising, redness, or numbness.
Most patients need two to four Kybella treatments to see a significant change in their chin profile. Each treatment is delivered 1-2 months apart. Results may vary and up to six treatments may be administered.
