Kybella is identical to deoxycholic acid which is produced in your body. Deoxycholic produced in the body helps the body absorb fats.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into submental fat, the drug destroys fat cells.
How much does it cost?
Given the medication was just FDA approved, pricing information is not yet available.
How long does it take to inject Kybella?
The procedure is an in-office set of injections.
Is Kybella safe?
In the hands of a well trained dermatologist that is trained in the anatomy of the area, yes. According to a press release from the FDA, the safety and effectiveness of Kybella for treatment of submental fat were established in two clinical trials which enrolled 1,022 adult participants with moderate or severe submental fat. Participants were randomly assigned to receive Kybella or a placebo for up to six treatments. The results showed that reductions in submental fat were observed more frequently in participants who received Kybella versus placebo.
What are the most common side effects of Kybella?
The most common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
1. The skin tightening effect of Kybella is now supported by large amount of research and science.
2. This small applicator is an assessment tool to measure the amount of fat that can be Freezed during Coolsculpting treatment. We place this under Chin during consultation looking for a good fit without spaces. Not all chin fat will fit into this cup snugly. Consider Kybella as alternative. See the blue colored tool below.
3. Therefore, two main factors determines which treatment is best. One is amount of fat. Second is amount of loose skin.
Come in to see if you are a good candidate for either of this treatment.
Many patients will need Ultherapy for skin tightening.
