KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Before starting your KYBELLA® treatment, we will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if this treatment is right for you. Then, we will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies. The specialists at Conway Women's Med Spa
will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat along with your personal treatment goals. Each treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. After your treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Contact us
