What is the Target Area for KYBELLA®?
Currently, the KYBELLA® procedure can only be applied to get rid of the fat beneath the chin. In fact, it is the only FDA approved procedure for chin fat reduction.
How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® makes use of the natural components produced by your body that helps in reducing fat from your body. Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid which is naturally produced by your body to absorb fat. KYBELLA® injection aims to administer a synthetic form of this acid into your body. Once injected, this acid can destroy fat cells beneath the chin so that it cannot store fat anymore. However, apart from destroying the fat cells, deoxycholic acid can also cause harm to normal cells. Hence, make sure that you consult an expert for KYBELLA® injections.
Prior to the procedure, your doctor will mark the injection spots with the help of a marker and also administer you with a topical numbing agent for your ease. Generally, at least 20 to 30 injections are administered under the chin. In some rare cases, the number can also get to 50 injections. The acid injected will gradually kill fat cells that are being metabolized by the body after the treatment.
Do note that the procedure is not done in one sitting, and you might need more than one sitting depending on the size of your fat stores. You can receive up to six treatments with a gap of one month in between. Our experts will guide through every step to simplify your journey.
