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, KYBELLA® 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.
For all patients interested in Kybella, here at Millefiori, we schedule a complimentary consultation. You will be evaluated by our Physician Assistant and owner, Iris. She will determine if it is right for you. Iris will customize a treatment plan specific to your needs. After the Kybella injection, you will likely have swelling, bruising, numbness or tingling in the injection area. These symptoms are temporary and last from a few days up to 2 weeks. If you have any special events coming up, such as a wedding, be sure to discuss the timeline with your injector.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your injector will help determine how many session you will need based on the amount of submental fat and your treatment goals. Each Kybella treatment is done at least 1 month apart. This allows time for the medication to work and swelling to subside. The average number of treatments patient receive is between 2-4. The max you can do within 1 years timeframe is 6 treatments.
