A non-surgical solution to treat unwanted fat!

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injection that is used to treat mild to moderate amounts of fat storage on the face & body. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, which has a preference for fat, and it will permanently breakdown fat cells which are then naturally eliminated by the body. Kybella is best for people who want to avoid surgery but are who are concerned with mild to moderate fat storage. Common areas to treat are the chin, bra fat, stomach, inner thighs, love handles and more.

What to expect after a Kybella treatment?

Kybella will cause, swelling, fullness, bruising, tenderness and numbness which will be worse for the first 2 weeks as the product works to break down the excess fat. By weeks 3 & 4, the symptoms will start to improve and by weeks 4 – 8, a reduction in the overall fullness of the treated area will be noticed and the skin will be tighter. * Sometimes serious side effects can occur when injecting the jawline including nerve injury that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing when injecting the chin & neck (experienced in 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies). Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own over time.

How many Kybella treatments are needed?

Your Provider will help determine how many vials and treatment sessions you will need based upon your areas of concern and the amount of fat storage in each area. At SkinMedix we recommend not under-treating the area as we see the best results when an area is properly dosed, (usually 2 to 4 vials of Kybella) Each treatment is done every 8 weeks and clinical studies show 59% of patients received 2 to 4 treatment sessions per area.
