KYBELLA™ is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. KYBELLA™ is injected along the submental region by a healthcare provider as an office procedure. Patients can return to regular activity after the procedure with little to no down time. Within 6-8 weeks patients will notice tightening along the injected area and at this time can return for their next treatment if needed. Most patients will require 2-3 treatments depending on the degree of fullness. At this time KYBELLA™ is only indicated for use along the submental region. Patients should expect some swelling, possible bruising and numbness after the procedure. The numbness, swelling and bruising dissipates within a few days to weeks. The advantage is that the procedure is done in the office with out the need for anesthesia and the results are usually permanent.
