Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a product made from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile acid that your body uses to break down fat. Kybella is a synthetic version of this bile acid, and when injected into fat cells, it destroys them, meaning your body can’t store fat under your chin anymore. The acid takes effect and gradually kills the fat cells, and they are then absorbed back into your body.

FDA approval for Kybella only applies to treat fat from the submental region, that is, under the chin, and isn’t appropriate for other parts of your body. Make sure you consult a clinic that has qualified staff with experience in applying the treatment. The specialists at American Beauty Medi Spa in Lake Forest are fully trained and have completed many Kybella procedures for their patients.

What happens during the procedure?

Your practitioner marks the area to be treated and puts an anesthetic gel or cooling pads on your skin to keep you comfortable and then injects Kybella into the area they’ve marked. Each treatment consists of a series of injections, from 20 up to 50, depending on how many fat cells need treating.

You’ll probably need more than one treatment session to make sure all the fat cells have been destroyed. You schedule these follow-ups at no less than monthly intervals, up to a maximum of six treatments.

Is Kybella safe and effective?

Kybella injections are the only FDA-approved treatments of their type for under-chin fat. They’re used successfully and safely in multiple cases with very few problems. Providing you make sure you use a qualified practitioner, such as the team from American Beauty Medi Spa in Lake Forest, to administer your treatment, you have nothing to worry about.

As the treatment permanently destroys fat cells, once you’ve completed your course of treatment the effects will last for the rest of your life. That means you won’t be bothered by any double chins in the future, so you won’t need to return for further treatment sessions.
