Kybella Q & A

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a research-backed aesthetic injectable that’s clinically designed to target and destroy excess fat that contributes to the appearance of a double chin, which is called submental fullness. An FDA-approved injectable, Kybella contains deoxycholic acid in a synthetic form. 

This substance, which also occurs naturally in your body, is responsible for breaking down dietary fat and assisting with fat absorption. When deoxycholic acid is injected directly into fatty deposits, the solution can start destroying fat cells quickly. Your body naturally discards these fat particles through waste over time. 

What happens during a Kybella treatment?

When you come to Point Loma Cosmetics for your Kybella service, you lie back on the table or lean back in a comfortable position in a chair. While Kybella injections may cause some minor burning, your aesthetic specialist can apply a topical numbing cream before getting started to minimize any discomfort you may experience. 

A Kybella treatment involves getting several injections — sometimes dozens at a time. The purpose is to ensure fat is evenly destroyed for smoother results.

To ensure each Kybella injection is evenly spaced, Warda marks off injection sites, often with a stencil. The next step involves injecting Kybella into each spot. 

In many cases, your aesthetic specialist at Point Loma Cosmetics can complete your Kybella treatment in as little as 20-30 minutes. While minor redness and swelling are normal afterward, no downtime is necessary. 

When will I have results with Kybella?

Warda usually finds that Kybella leaves you with noticeable results within about four to six weeks. You continue experiencing a more defined profile and a reduction in submental fullness for several months after that point as your body continues to flush out broken-down fat.

While a single Kybella service might be all you need, your provider at Point Loma Cosmetics may recommend a few sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. This helps efficiently target all stubborn fat, so your double chin never returns (unless you gain weight in the future).
