KYBELLA

KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection 10mg/ml is an FDA approved prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you are left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLAis synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. KYBELLA comes from the Allergan family, the creators of Botox, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus.

What to Expect

During the initial consultation, Dr. Stepanyan will examine your problem area and customize the treatment plan according to your needs. At this point, any questions or concerns will be addressed.

The treatment consists of small injections being placed under the chin and takes around 15 to 20 minutes. The amount of injections and sessions will be based on each patient’s specific needs. According to the FDA, patients are able to receive up to 50 injections in a single treatment. Up to six single treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart. Dr. Stepanyan will help you determine how many treatment sessions will be needed based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.

After the treatment session, the chin may have temporary swelling, bruising or numbness.For most patients downtime occurs most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment.

Prior to your treatment session, our office staff will apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. We may also suggest you take an over-the-counter pain reliever before your appointment.

Recovery time and results will vary with each patient. Dr. Stepanyan will schedule a check-up appointment after your treatment to further examine your healing process.
