Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

kybellaKybella is an injectable medication that’s FDA approved to treat moderate to severe submental fullness, or fat under the chin.

Submental fullness may be present at birth or develop from weight gain or aging. No matter the cause, this pocket of fat is difficult to eliminate and may not improve even if you’re at your goal weight.

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center can help you get rid of submental fullness with Kybella injections.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a substance naturally found in your body that helps break down and metabolize fat in food during digestion.

When injected into the submental fat under your chin, the active ingredient breaks down the fat cells and your body removes them from the area. 

Once the fat cells are gone, they never return, leaving you with a sleeker, slimmer profile. 

Am I a candidate for Kybella?

Your board-certified dermatologist at Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center conducts an in-depth evaluation to determine if Kybella is the right choice for you.

You may be a candidate for the cosmetic injection if you:

  • Don’t like the extra fat under your chin
  • Feel your submental fullness makes you look older 
  • Want to avoid surgery
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Engage in regular exercise
  • Are at or close to your desired weight

In addition to Kybella injections, Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center also offers body contouring with Sculpsure Laser. ®. This innovative device uses fat-destroying laser technology to destroy unwanted fat from almost any part of your body, including the abdomen, love handles, and thighs. 

What happens during Kybella injections?

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center customizes your Kybella injection treatment plan to match your specific needs. 

During your session, your dermatologist administers multiple injections of the medication directly into the fat under your chin.

You may feel a pinching sensation during your injections, but the pain is fleeting. You will experience some swelling and bruising afterward. These side effects resolve within 5 - 7 days.. 

How many Kybella treatments do I need?

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center determines the number of Kybella treatments you need at your initial consultation. They find most patients need up to six sessions set at monthly intervals to get the best results.
