What is Kybella? Is Kybella Safe?


Kybella is the first and only injectable treatment to treat double chins. Kybella’s active ingredient is a synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected in the chin, Kybella destroys those fat cells. Kybella is extremely safe when administered under a professional injector.

How Many Kybella Sessions Should I Get?


Ultimately, it depends on how your chin is, and the results that you want. Most Kybella recipients typically get around 6 treatments. Each treatment should be at least one month a part. The recommended maximum amount of treatments is 6 treatments. After treatments end, the results are permanent with constant exercise and good dieting.
