Kybella FAQs

What is submental fullness?
Submental fullness under the chin (often referred to as a double chin) is a common issue that concerns nearly 68% of adults in the U.S. according to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. A double chin often disrupts facial symmetry and results in an unwanted older and heavier look.

Submental fullness affects men and women of all ages and is caused by a variety of issues including weight gain, genetics, and natural aging. It is not limited to individuals who are overweight. Unfortunately, double chins are often extremely resistant to diet and exercise.

What is Kybella?
Kybella is developed through a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into targeted fat pockets under the chin, Kybella causes the rapid destruction and absorption of fat cells while also preventing future fat accumulation.  After treatment, the fat is cleared from the area by the body’s natural metabolic process. Kybella only targets fat cells; all other cells and tissue remain unaffected.

Kybella is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. It is geared toward people looking for an improved chin profile.

How is a Kybella treatment performed?
Kybella is administered to the fat under the chin through a series of injections. Each persons unique treatment plan is tailored to their specific concerns.

Most treatments last between 30 and 45 minutes with Lidocain (a topical numbing anesthetic) being used to minimize discomfort.

Are multiple treatments required?
Depending on each patient characteristics and goals multiple treatments may be necessary. Most patients experience visible results within two treatment sessions.  Treatment sessions are spaced about a 6 weeks apart.

How long does Kybella last?
Once the aesthetic response is achieved no further treatments will be required. The fat cells are killed in the area and the treatment is permanent.

Who is a good candidate for a Kybella treatment?
Kybella is for the treatment of fat under the chin on any skin type or aged person.  Even though it is not deigned to treat excess or loose skin, it has shown a tighten effect in the treatment area after the fat is destroyed.

What are the common side effects after a Kybella treatment?
There are no long term side effects seen after a Kybella treatment. Swelling and redness in the area are the most common side effects and can last 3 – 5 days. Other side effects are rare but can include bruising, numbness and areas of hardness, all of which resolve easily on there own.

Is it safe to drive after having Kybella procedure?
At the laser clinic we treat clients with Kybella from Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Torrance, Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills and Los Angeles and there is no problem for them to drive after the procedure.

How much does Kybella cost?
Kybella price is dependent on the number of treatments the patient would need to get their desired result. For example, a small neck area would be a single vial, costing $600. The nurse injecting the Kybella will discuss exact cost specific to your concern.
