Get rid of double chin with KYBELLA
KYBELLA is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area and in children less than 18 years of age. If you’re bothered by the fullness beneath your chin, you’re not alone.
According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people said they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin, or what your healthcare provider may refer to as “submental fullness associated with submental fat.”
Is Kybella safe?
Are Kybella injections safe? Kybella injections are entirely safe, but the accompanying safety guidelines must be adhered to. Kybella is FDA approved for the treatment of submental fat (fat below the chin), and is not yet cleared by the FDA for use in any other part of the body.
How long does Kybella last for?
Unlike Botox, which yields results that last for up to six months in as few as four days, Kybella results are noticeable at four to six weeks and last for years, which means that touch-ups shouldn’t be needed. As for side effects, expect swelling and bruising that start to fade within three days of treatment.
How long does Kybella take to heal?
For most, Kybella swelling doesn’t last long. Your swelling will typically peak about 20 to 28 hours after your procedure, and will likely go away after 48 hours. On rare occasions, you can experience swelling for longer, but it really depends on the dosage you receive and your particular skin.
