How Does Kybella Work?

KYBELLA injections will be performed in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. Dr. Vladyslava Doktor will typically apply a numbing cream to the areas to be injected after the skin has been cleansed. The KYBELLA procedure typically takes around 15 minutes where a few small injections targeting the submental area will be made. While patients will see results after their first treatment, most will need 3 – 5 treatments spaced three weeks apart at Skin Center Boston for optimal results. For more information, contact Skin Center Boston in Boston, MA for more information or to set up a one-on-one consultation.

What is KYBELLA?

For men and women that have a little extra fat in the upper neck area, sometimes called a "double chin," KYBELLA is a great way to smooth the upper neck. Dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor is pleased to provide this new method to reduce neck fat at Skin Center Boston. Approved by the FDA, KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that acts like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat. Once it has been injected under the chin, patients can see a noticeable decrease in the volume of fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells will not regenerate, leaving patients with a slimmer neck and stronger jawline for years to come.

Who Can Get KYBELLA?

The ideal patients for KYBELLA injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper neck (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats sections of fat that can't be reduced with usual weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. Men and women who are at or near a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not worked to remove this fat, may find KYBELLA to be the right treatment for their goals. While KYBELLA can correct small to moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, it cannot correct loose skin. Those with loose skin or larger pockets of fat may require an alternative procedure at Skin Center Boston.

What Happens After Receiving KYBELLA?

Patients can leave our office as soon as they feel ready to return to daily activities after their KYBELLA treatment. Patients may notice temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising below the chin; however, this should not last more than a few days. If patients are noticing any unusual symptoms, like facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or uneven facial expressions, patients should contact Skin Center Boston. While the fat that is eliminated will not regenerate, the remaining cells can get larger so keeping a stable weight after getting KYBELLA injections is important to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Ideal results after this treatment leave patients' necks looking slimmer and tighter with a better-defined profile.
