Kybella Double Chin Treatment In West Hills, CA

What is Kybella (On-Label)?

Kybella is another name for deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is safe as our bodies can produce this substance within our digestive systems. The purpose of the substance is to help break down fats, so they are easily digested. Deoxycholic acids are also used as an emulsifier in foods. Alternatively, it is a non-surgical option for lipomas, non-cancerous tumors made from fat cells.

Kybella is a procedure called injection lipolysis. This is a non-surgical option which is used to melt fat. In 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved this procedure for the submental (On-Label) region of the body, known as the facial space between the chin and neck.

What is Kybella (Off-Label)?

Since 2015, doctors have experimented with Kybella being used in Off-Label areas. Patients have also reaped the benefits of Deoxycholic being utilised this way. The current off-label use of Kybella broadens the scope of its utility. Not only can Kybella now get rid of a stubborn double chin, but it can also target love handles, the lower abdomen, and the circumference of your arms. However, professionals dissuade patients from receiving Kybella injections in the face, as results are often disappointing. With Off-Label treatments, the procedure is similar to On-Label treatments, and the recovery symptoms are relatively similar depending on where it is injected.

What to expect from Kybella Recovery

Kybella is often described as a fat loss method. Deoxycholic is injected into the fat beneath the chin. The substance works to destroy the fat cells, which results in a noticeable reduction in the fullness under the chin. While some experts believe that once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Others caution that this is not the case for every patient. Moreover, the remaining cells which have not been destroyed may expand over time if your diet is not maintained.

While there is little to no preparation required for Kybella, it is advised that patients thoroughly wash their faces to reduce the risk of infections. Additionally, it is advised that you avoid pain killers (such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen) to reduce the risk of bruising. Most importantly, you must schedule your procedure well before any significant events.

Kybella typically takes about 20 minutes. Your provider can administer 20 to 30 or up to 50 injections from one syringe in one session. These fat dissolving injections are about one centimeter apart.

Before your procedure, your health care provider will mark all the injection sites with a marker. They may give you a topical numbing agent, or an ice pack, to ease any pain or discomfort. The substance works to kill fat cells gradually over the following weeks.

Treatments may vary for each person. One patient may be satisfied with one treatment; another might receive four treatments. Patients may receive up to six treatment sessions, each session taking place one month after the last.

After receiving the Kybella, you can expect:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Temporary numbness at the site of injection

Other side effects include:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Skin ulceration
  • Temporary nerve injury
  • Temporary or permanent beard hair loss
