Kybella Q&A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection to reduce moderate to severe submental fullness under the chin. 

Submental fullness refers to the pocket of fat under the chin. Kybella injections contain deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps break down fat in the digestive system. When injected into the fat under the chin, the medication destroys fat cells. 

Then, your body slowly removes them from the area, leaving you with a slimmer facial profile. Once the fat is gone, it doesn’t return.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella injections? 

Most people are good candidates for Kybella injections. This medication works well for clients who might be unhappy with extra fat under the chin, even if they've had it their entire life.

Some people are born with submental fullness because it runs in the family. The pocket of fat may also appear if you gain weight — but it doesn't disappear when you lose it. Aging also contributes to this stubborn pocket of fat under the chin. 

If you’re unhappy about extra fat under your chin and don't want surgery, Kybella might be an excellent solution. 

The team at Artem Med Spa can talk to you in more detail about Kybella and help you decide if it's the right treatment for you.

What does Kybella feel like? 

At Artem Med Spa, the team tailors your Kybella treatment plan to you so that you remain comfortable during your sessions. 

Your provider applies a numbing cream to the skin under your chin before giving the injections. They then administer multiple injections into the fat under the chin. 

You might feel pressure but no pain during your Kybella injections. You may experience some redness, bruising, and swelling at the injection site afterward. These side effects resolve quickly, within a week or so.

There’s no need for downtime after treatment. You can go back to your usual routine. 

When can I expect to see results from Kybella? 

Results from Kybella can vary, but you'll likely notice improvements in your profile about 2-4 months after starting treatment. 

Your Artem Med Spa provider might recommend a series of about six monthly injections to get the best outcomes.
