Kybella Q&A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to improve your appearance if you have moderate to severe submental fat or a "double chin." It contains deoxycholic acid, a molecule naturally occurring in your body that helps break down and absorb fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells. 

Kybella offers a nonsurgical alternative to procedures like liposuction, giving you a more contoured and defined jawline. Consulting with the Pure Bliss Medspa team is essential to determine if Kybella is the right treatment option for you.

Where else can I get Kybella?

While Kybella primarily targets fat beneath your chin, it can address unwanted fat off-label in many areas, including:

  • Jowls
  • Bra fat
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Knees

At your consultation, the team can determine whether you’re a candidate for Kybella in areas other than beneath your chin.

How should I prepare for Kybella?

As a minimally invasive treatment, Kybella requires very little preparation. However, you can take a few preparatory steps to ensure an optimal experience, including:

  • Avoid blood thinners
  • Hydrate
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking for 24 hours before
  • Arrive with clean skin and no makeup
  • Wear comfortable clothing

The team may recommend specific instructions depending on your family and medical history.

What can I expect from Kybella?

During a Kybella treatment, the team injects deoxycholic acid directly into the targeted area to break down and absorb fat cells over time. You might feel some discomfort or burning during the injections, but your provider can offer numbing cream or ice packs to help ease any pain. 

After the treatment, expect some swelling, redness, and bruising in the area. Initial improvements typically begin to show within the first few weeks of treatment. 

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Most people need at least 4-6 Kybella injections spaced 4-6 weeks apart, but your treatment regimen depends on your individual skin needs.

How long does Kybella last?

Once your fat cells disappear, they can’t come back. Your results are permanent. However, you can still accumulate fat in the treatment area, so a healthy diet and exercise regimen is essential to maintain your results.
