What is Kybella®?
Kybella® in Boston and Worcester, Massachusetts is the only FDA-approved injectable that diminishes the appearance of fat below the chin, also called a double chin or submental fullness. Kybella® is made up of deoxycholic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body to destroy dietary fat cells. Learn more about the History of Kybella in Dr. Hall’s blog!
How does Kybella® help fix double chin?
Because Kybella® is made up of deoxycholic acid, fat cells are permanently destroyed. For optimal results, two to four sessions are required, spaced at least four weeks apart. Dr. Hall will create an individualized injection plan based on the amount of correction desired.
When should I expect results?
Results are noticeable in as little as two to four treatments. Up to six treatments may be necessary to achieve your goals.
How long do results last?
Kybella® can last for years, and touch-ups should not be necessary. However, if a significant amount of weight is gained, fullness under the chin may return.
What should I expect during recovery?
There is no downtime associated with Kybella®. Patients will experience minor swelling and bruising after treatment, which should resolve within three days. Learn more about the recovery process in Dr. Hall’s Ultimate Guide to Kybella blog!
