Kybella™ is an injectable used in adults to permanently destroy fat cells. It has been FDA approved to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also known as the "double chin." It is not known if Kybella™ is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area, however advanced injectors have used Kybella™ off-label on other areas such as the jowls, underarm fat, belly, thighs and more.
How is Kybella administered?
At Premier Medical Spa Kybella™ is given during an in-office visit. The injection process may take 15-20 minutes. We will give a series of injections into the fat at each treatment session. Depending on the bulk of fat being destroyed, multiple sessions may be required.
How often will I need treatments?
Each treatment is personalized to meet the needs of every patient, but most patients see results with every session. The treatments can be administered a minimum of four weeks apart. The really great news is that once the cells are destroyed they can no longer accumulate fat!
Will there be side effects?
The most common side effects of Kybella™ include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. There will be "down time" typically one day to a week. It's best to discuss this with your provider prior to injections.
