Did you know that over 65 percent of people are bothered by the fat that is present underneath their chins? It is true and Kybella in Brooklyn may be the answer for you. Kybella is an FDA approved injection that works to destroy any fat cells that appear underneath the chin. The results will improve the look of your profile and provide you with the boost in self confidence that you need. Many patients seek out this treatment because they do not like the appearance of a double chin and want to have it removed. In fact, extra fat can cause you to look heavier than what you are. Patients who do not want to have the fat removed surgically will find that Kybella is a wonderful alternative. Unfortunately, exercise and healthy eating alone may not remove the excess fat and that is where a Kybella treatment in Brooklyn can help. Call the experts at Kleydman Dermatology today to go over your options or to schedule a consultation.

How Kybella Treatment Works

Kybella contains an active ingredient which is called synthetic deoxycholic acid – it’s a molecule that occurs naturally within the body. This is responsible for the absorption as well as the breakdown of all dietary fat. Once Kybella has been injected into the chin, it will immediately go to work to destroy the fat cells that exist. The result is a chin that is not as full. Once the fat cells are destroyed, you do not have to worry about them returning as those cells cannot hold onto fat anymore.

It is important that you only trust a Kybella trained specialist to administer the injectable into your chin. Improper placement or incorrect usage of the injection can cause problems for you later. The treatment you receive will be done in small injections all around the chin and the total process will take about 0 minutes to complete. The number of injections you need will depend on how much fat is in the chin area and what your desired results are.

The number of treatments you need to receive will depend on how well you respond to the treatment and what your desired results are. Typically, treatment is spaced out at least one month in between each session and most patients are satisfied with their results somewhere between one and six treatments.

The active ingredient in KYBELLA ® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA ® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.



Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA ® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.


How is KYBELLA ® administered?

Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA ® -trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.


How many KYBELLA ® treatment sessions will I need?

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA ® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.


Will I need time to recover?

After KYBELLA ® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.
