Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to eliminate fat cells under your chin with just a series of simple injections. There’s no need for anesthesia, invasive procedures, or incisions.

Fat cells are located throughout your body, including the area beneath your chin, which is called the submental area. When you gain weight, your fat cells expand, and when you lose weight, they shrink.

Submental fat cells are notoriously stubborn, however, and often fail to shrink even when you are adhering to a strict diet and exercise regimen. That’s where Kybella can come in; treatments can permanently eliminate those cells, creating lasting changes in your profile.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is created using a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in your body. Deoxycholic acid works to help you break down and absorb fat in the foods you eat. The synthetic version performs those same tasks, only in the fat cells present under your chin.

Once Kybella damages the structural integrity of the targeted fat cells they can no longer store fat, and your body absorbs and processes them the same way as any other non-functioning cells. The end result is a permanent elimination of fat under your chin, which can give you a more defined, sculpted profile.

Some men and women achieve their goals after only one treatment session, while others require multiple treatments to eliminate a larger volume of fat cells. It’s important to note that while the cells eliminated through treatment will not regenerate, it’s still possible for your remaining fat cells to expand, which could alter your results. Be sure you’re at a stable weight prior to pursuing Kybella treatments.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

Many men and women can benefit from this exciting new treatment option, but there are certain conditions that could limit the safety or effectiveness of Kybella injections. Some of those conditions include:

  • Certain medications, especially blood thinning drugs
  • Previous cosmetic procedures on your chin, neck, or face
  • Previous or planned surgical procedures near the treatment area
  • History of bleeding disorders
  • If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Certain medical conditions that affect your ability to swallow

Be sure to discuss your full health history with your provider at Naturally You Med Spa during your initial appointment. When you’re ready to get started, call to schedule a visit or book online.
