Kybella is the trade name for a naturally occurring substance found in the body; deoxycholic acid. This substance helps the body absorb fats and when injected into the area below the chin, causes these fat cells to disintegrate and be eliminated through the natural processes of the body.
Kybella treatment takes less time than a manicure
Kybella treatments are short and virtually painless. After applying a local anesthetic, several well-placed and shallow injections are made into the fatty tissue. After their Los Angeles Kybella treatment, patients can return to their normal activities with no tell tale signs of treatment. Shortly following treatment there may be minor bruising and some swelling but this resolves within a few days and is not noticeable.
Depending on the amount of fat, most patients will receive 2 to 4 sessions spaced about a month apart. The effects of treatment begin to be seen within a few weeks and after the full course of treatment, patients report a very high satisfaction rate. A big advantage to Kybella is that the fat is permanently gone just as it would be with liposuction.
