How Effective is Kybella?
Kybella is the result of more than 20 clinical trials on some 2,600 patients. It is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for this purpose. Kybella can be administered over a course of six treatments, at least one month apart with a 79% success rate among those who complete all six treatments. More than a quarter of participants in clinical trials were able to see results after just the first two treatments and, in some cases, less than six treatments were needed to reach the desired results.
What Makes Kybella Work?
The primary active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. This acid is present in your body as a means of breaking down fat cells already. By replicating this molecule and targeting it directly at the fat cells beneath the chin it can be used to efficiently fight the signs of aging and reduce submental fullness. In most cases, once the course of treatment has been completed, there is no need for recurring treatment at a later date. The cells themselves are broken down and reabsorbed so that they cannot continue to accumulate and store fat.
Are there any Side Effects from a Kybella Treatment?
There are some known side effects to Kybella. In most cases, side effects include soreness and swelling at the injection site, or small hard spots that fade over time. In more severe cases, Kybella can cause nerve damage that results in facial weakness and can affect your ability to smile.
Is Kybella Right for You?
Kybella is among the safest and most recommended treatments of its kind. If you think you may be a good candidate for this procedure, consider the following questions:
- Do you wish to reduce the appearance of a double chin?
- Do more invasive treatments seem like too great a risk or expense?
- Does a minimally invasive treatment seem to be the best option?
- Are you in good health, overall?
