Kybella Q & A

Beja Aesthetics

What causes double chins?

Both men and women may suffer from the condition that has no adverse physical effects but can undermine confidence in one’s appearance. Also, it’s a spot on the body that resists attempts to change despite diet and exercise. A 2015 dermatologic study found that as many as 67% of survey respondents felt bothered by fat under their chin. While expensive surgical procedures can address submental fullness, there’s now a minimally invasive, non-surgical way to eliminate excess chin fat using deoxycholic acid in a product called Kybella.

How does Kybella work?

Deoxycholic acid is a substance found naturally in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. Kybella is composed of a synthesized version of this acid. It’s injected into the submental region to target the cells under the chin that hold fat deposits. Kybella won’t tighten or remove loose hanging skin. But it will target those cells that hold fat and prevent them from accumulating in this area in the future. That means once a patient reaches his or her desired aesthetic with Kybella treatment, that profile should be long lasting. 

What can I expect from a Kybella treatment?

The injection process takes about 15-20 minutes for each treatment. Multiple small injections are administered through the treatment area. The precise number depend on the size of existing fat stores and the results desired. The number of treatments also depend on the size of the treatment area and the desired end profile. Kybella is well tolerated and doesn’t require anesthesia. Most patients begin to see results after the first session. There is no downtime and side effects for Kybella are minimal, consisting mostly of redness, swelling, bruising, pain, or numbness in the injection area.
