FAQ’s

Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is an FDA-approved cosmetic injection indicated for improving the appearance of submental fullness associated with submental fat in adults.

A series of 1-6 treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results, and these will occur no sooner than the one-month interval. Your doctor/nurse will decide the appropriate number of treatment sessions and the amount of Kybella you will need at each session.

The results of Kybella are not immediate. At your first treatment visit, you will receive a series of injections in the submental area. You will have swelling in the submental area after the injection and a few days following the injections. Kybella will cause the fat cells to disappear gradually over the next month following your injection in the treated area. RESULTS ARE PERMANENT IF YOUR WEIGHT IS BALANCED. NO SURGERY.

Side effects of Kybella may include bruising, swelling, numbness, induration, marginal mandibular nerve injury, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), bleeding, tenderness or discomfort, tissue necrosis, hyperpigmentation, redness, or alopecia at the site of injection.

You should not be pregnant, breastfeeding, have a history of a bleeding disorder or infection of the area to be treated. On the morning of your treatment, you should take ibuprofen if you can tolerate this medication. Also, please tell us if you consume blood thinners or aspirin or have a history of any issue with lidocaine or epinephrine.

-If you can tolerate ibuprofen, take 200mg three times daily beginning the day of your treatment and for the following four days

-Avoid heavy exercise the day of your treatment
