Kybella is a simple non-surgical treatment that takes under an hour. It’s the first product that has been FDA and Health Canada approved for the treatment of submental fullness caused by bulging fat (also known as subcutaneous fat). Known as Belkyra® in Canada, it involves an injection made into the area underneath your chin. Once injected, Kybella works to break down the fat you don’t want under your chin. In one or more sessions, you’ll see that bulging fat slim down, giving you a firmer neck area you’ll love. You won’t have a double chin anymore.

Kybella® is safe and effective

Kybella® has been extensively researched worldwide to prove its safety and effectiveness. Based on over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients, Kybella® has been found to achieve the following results:

  • – 68.2% of patients experienced a 1-grade improvement with Kybella®, while only 20.5% responded to a placebo.
  • – 16% of patients experienced a 2-grade improvement with Kybella®, while only 2% of patients responded to a placebo.
  • – 79% of patients treated with Kybella® were satisfied with the appearance of their face and chin.
  • – After being treated with Kybella®, patients experienced an improvement in their self-perception. They felt happier and younger based on the profile of their chin. In addition, they didn’t feel as embarrassed self-conscious, or overweight because of their improved chin profile.

How does it work?

Kybella® or Belkyra®, as it’s known in Canada, is an injectable drug that is based on deoxycholic acid, a chemical substance that can be found naturally in the human body. Deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells (technically known as adipocytes and lipocytes) by disrupting their membranes. When the membranes are no longer intact, the contents of the fat cells are released. These contents are free fatty acids and glycerol. Your body takes these away to be processed as waste matter.

The fat that has been destroyed never returns, which means you’ll enjoy permanent results from your treatment regimen.

 

You should know that because only small amounts of fat are dissolved during your injection, you won’t experience any negative impact on your liver or kidneys following this medical aesthetic treatment.

Kybella® and Belkyra® Double Chin Treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate your double chin without surgery. All you need are simple injections to reshape your neck contour permanently.

FAQs about Kybella

Kybella® is a medicine that can only be obtained from a doctor. Our doctor will first assess your concerns and general health to ensure that Kybella® is suitable for you. Some questions our doctor may ask you during your free consultation include whether you have swallowing difficulties or bleeding issues.

The product is designed for adults who dislike the appearance and profile of their chin area due to bulging stubborn fat. It can get rid of moderate to severe submental fat.

At this time, Kybella® has only been approved for fat under the chin.

Kybella® may not be suitable for you if you have an infection in the area you’d like to have treated. While it is unknown how Kybella® can affect an unborn baby or breast milk, if you are pregnant or nursing, you should wait until you’ve given birth or stopped breastfeeding before pursuing treatment to be on the safe side.

This depends on how much correction you’d like. You’ll get a rough idea of how many treatments you’ll need before you begin your regimen. It’s common that patients see visible results in 2 to 4 sessions. If you have a prominent double chin, then you may need up to 6 injection sessions. Usually, sessions are scheduled monthly. This allows the time needed for the fat to dissolve and get absorbed by your body, so you can see your results.

This treatment is so different from typical facelift surgery. It doesn’t involve any incisions or stitches. All that happens is you’ll receive multiple injections into the area under your chin, where the excess fat forms your double chin. The injection sites are pre-marked to ensure accuracy. The number of injections during a single session can vary from 20 to 50, all in the underside of the chin.

Most patients do not require any anesthesia, but a local anesthetic may be applied to improve comfort.

Yes, you’ll enjoy a permanent improvement of your chin contour as the targeted fat cells disappear. This is because the treatment destroys fat in the area, making it virtually impossible to re-accumulate. However, excessive weight gain after this non-surgical treatment may reverse your results. Therefore, we recommend you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan to limit dietary fat and maintain your results.

Unfortunately, this procedure is only designed to eliminate unwanted fat. It does not tighten loose skin. However, we offer a number of skin tightening technologies that can help firm up loose skin for a dramatic improvement. Your skin tightening treatment can be performed in conjunction with your Kybella treatment.

Kybella® is a safe treatment for under chin fat and double chins. However, like any medical treatment, you should be aware of the side effects and possible risks involved.

Common side effects include the following:

  • swelling
  • bruising
  • pain
  • numbness
  • rednes
  • areas of hardness in the treatment area

Rare complications that may occur include the following:

  • swallowing difficulties
  • nerve injury in the face or jaw, making it difficult to smile evenly or perform other facial expressions
