Kybella Q & A

How does Kybella work?

Kybella’s main ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This substance, which is found naturally in your body, is responsible for breaking down and absorbing fat. When your provider injects Kybella, the deoxycholic acid immediately starts destroying fat cell deposits.

Once they’re broken down, the cells can’t accumulate fat any longer. Results are permanent, so as long as you don’t gain weight in the future, your outcome can last a lifetime, and you won’t need to have Kybella injections again in the future.

When will I see results with Kybella?

Although Kybella jumps into action right away, it takes time for you to notice results, since your system has to start flushing away all those broken down fat cells. You should start noticing a dramatic effect in as little as three to four weeks, with optimal results surfacing around six to eight weeks. Because Kybella continues to break down and flush out fat, you may continue noticing an improvement even after that point.

Which areas can be treated with Kybella?

Even though Kybella is known for getting rid of that dreaded double chin and working to define your jawline, it’s also beneficial for off-label treatments, too. Dr. Camden is one of the only practitioners who offers Kybella treatments for other areas of your body.

If you have stubborn fatty deposits that are making you self-conscious or uncomfortable about your appearance, let Dr. Camden know. Some clients benefit from Kybella injection treatments in their upper arms, along their bra line, or in their buttocks.

Do I need more than one Kybella treatment?

Likely, yes. A single Kybella treatment often involves getting multiple injections in the treatment area. With her Kybella expertise, Dr. Camden knows precisely where to inject Kybella so it’s most beneficial for you. Although you’re probably going to notice an improvement shortly after your first session, most men and women need more than one Kybella treatment.

It’s typical for clients to need two to four sessions, each scheduled about a month apart, to achieve optimal results. You can safely have up to six Kybella treatments if needed.
