Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment that targets and destroys unwanted or hard-to-lose fat cells below the chin and jaw. It comes in the form of an injectable that the team at Amélie places beneath your chin at multiple injection sites.

The active ingredient in Kybella is called deoxycholic acid, which is a bile acid. Your liver produces the same acid to help break down fat from your diet in your intestines. Similarly, Kybella injections help break down stored fat beneath your chin. The fat cells that Kybella destroys can no longer store fat at all, so the results are permanent. 

What does Kybella treat?

Kybella treats double chin fat and the fat that contributes to your jowls. Fat in the chin area is often particularly difficult to lose even if you follow a healthy diet. This is because chin fat usually develops because of your genes, posture, age-related skin laxity, and other factors that have nothing to do with your weight. 

How many treatments with Kybella will I need?

If you choose to get Kybella injections for your double chin, the Amélie team tells you how many rounds of treatments you’ll need to see a significant reduction. In most cases, a single round of Kybella injections involves 20-50 individual injections. You’ll start noticing a difference after 2-4 treatments, but you may need up to six treatments in total. 

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

Before adding Kybella to your aesthetic transformation, you should consult with a member of the team at Amélie about your goals and health history. They might decide that you’re a candidate for Kybella injections if you:

  • Are 18 or older
  • Feel uncomfortable with your chin fat
  • Have never had facial surgery
  • Aren’t pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Exercise and eat healthy foods
  • Don’t want to undergo surgery

If you and your provider decide together that Kybella is right for you, they tell you what you can expect during your treatment and how to prepare for a successful appointment.
