How long does Kybella last?

Are you self-conscious about the excess fat below your chin? If you are, and diet and exercise haven’t helped, it’s possible to melt away that double chin with Kybella. Kybella is an attractive option for people desiring a non-surgical treatment for their double chin. But how long does Kybella last.

Melt away your double chin with Kybella

Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a compound that occurs naturally in the body and breaks down dietary fat. During treatment small amounts of Kybella are injected into the area below the chin (submental area), and dissolves the membrane of the fat cells. This causes the contents of the fat cells to spill out, and they are eventually processed and expelled by the body.

How long does Kybella last?

The results of Kybella are long lasting because once the fat cells below the chin are destroyed they won’t return. However, in order to achieve permanent results, patients must maintain a healthy weight. Patients that participated in clinical studies with Kybella and gained weight after treatment, did not experience significant weight gain in the submental area.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Some patients experience a reduction in their double chin after 1-2 sessions, but doctors generally recommend 4-6 treatments to achieve optimal results.

What results can I expect?

Kybella will reduce fat below the chin, and improve the appearance of the neck and jawline.
