Kybella Q & A

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is an injectable solution that contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that your body also naturally produces. Deoxycholic acid is responsible for breaking down and absorbing fat throughout your body.

The purpose of Kybella is to have a concentrated solution of deoxycholic acid and inject it into an area where fat tends to build up: your chin and jawline. Over time, Kybella helps your body destroy fat cells and once they’re broken down, you won’t have to worry about fat accumulation in the area again (unless you gain weight).

Are Kybella injections painful?

As with any type of injection, Kybella can lead to some mild stinging and burning, which are sensations that are quite well-tolerated. But the compassionate team at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa don’t want you to worry about pain; they only want you to focus on your new enhanced profile.

If you come into SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa about 20-30 minutes before your scheduled Kybella service, you can apply a topical numbing cream or ice pack to prevent discomfort during your treatment.

What happens during a Kybella treatment?

After talking with you about your goals and applying any requested numbing solutions, your aesthetician marks the injection sites. Depending on your specific Kybella treatment plan, you could need anywhere from 20-30 (sometimes more) small injections.

The entire Kybella treatment from SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa takes just about 20 minutes, and you can return right back to your regular activities afterward — no downtime needed.

When will I have results with Kybella?

Although Kybella starts working on the spot, it takes your body time to get rid of all of those broken down fat cells. You should start noticing a gradual improvement in as little as three to six weeks after your Kybella service at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa.

For optimal results, you may need a series of two to four monthly Kybella sessions, but it just depends on your level of submental fullness. Because your body continues to break down fat long after your Kybella treatment, you should keep experiencing improvements in your profile for several months after your last treatment.
