Understanding KYBELLA: Does It Really Work?

You may have heard of KYBELLA before and its ability to reduce or eliminate fat in and underneath your chin. Some even consider it a “double-chin remover.” However, others are left skeptical of its effectiveness and are left to wonder if it even works at all. Well, to give you the short answer. Yes, yes, it very much so works.

Reputable doctors all over the nation use KYBELLA to treat their patient’s needs. However, it’s important to discuss how it works to quell any doubts. So let’s take a look at KYBELLA and how it works so you can decide if it’s right for you.

Understanding KYBELLA

KYBELLA is an injectable that is FDA-approved to treat fat underneath the chin. Once the fat is removed, the skin retracts and removes that hated so-called “double chin.” How much the skin retracts is highly dependent on your skin health, age, and current skin damage. However, if you’re relatively young or take care of your skin, then you’re likely to see great results.

The Science Behind It

As mentioned before, it’s important to understand how exactly KYBELLA removes fat. KYBELLA is a commercial and branded form of deoxycholic acid, which is a natural substance your body uses in your digestive system. When KYBELLA is injected into the fat underneath your skin, it targets the cells and kills them. Once the fat has been destroyed, you’re left with less fat than before treatment. It is essentially a controlled demolition of your fat cells!

Does It Hurt?

The process of KYBELLA should not hurt but may be uncomfortable. Local numbing agents may be used to make the injection process easier to tolerate. Afterward, it’s normal to experience redness, swelling, and skin irritation. However, your provider will give you tips and information about aftercare.
