What You Should Know About Kybella

double chinPatients are often self-conscious about the appearance of a double chin. This is properly termed submental fat. A double chin can often be noted as a key cosmetic concern. Submental fat occurs when fat cells are stored under the chin, it often doesn’t respond to dieting and exercise. While weight gain is a common cause of submental fat, it may also result from genetics or the aging process. 

As an aesthetic practitioner, being able to eliminate submental fat will help you give your patients the appearance that they desire. Kybella, a non-surgical submental fat treatment, makes this possible. 

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable to eradicate excess fat under the chin. This unparalleled aesthetic treatment has become highly desired among patients as it creates a slim, elegant, and youthful profile. 

What You Should Know About Kybella

If you’re interested in adding Kybella to the treatments available at your aesthetic practice, you should know that:

  • Kybella uses the naturally occurring molecule deoxycholic acid. 

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally occurring in the human body, and its function is to break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella harnesses the fat-processing abilities of this molecule to eliminate submental fat, which gives patients a defined jawline. 

  • After Kybella injections, fat can never be stored in the treatment area again. 

Once Kybella has been injected under the chin, the body will no longer be able to store fat in that area. This is because this injectable’s specialized formula kills the fat cells in the targeted area. So, Kybella is a permanent solution to submental fat. 

  • Kybella takes about 15 to 20 minutes to administer. 

Like many other injectables, Kybella takes just 15 to 20 minutes to administer. So, even for your patients who struggle to fit appointments into their hectic schedules, Kybella is a quick and convenient treatment.
