Continue reading to learn all about Kybella for body and face including: How it works; possible treatment areas; how Kybella compares to liposuction; and the number of sessions that you may need.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid to eliminate localized fat deposits. In 2015, Kybella was cleared to treat submental fullness, which is also known as a double chin.

More recently, leading injectors, like Dr. Singh, have been using Kybella to sculpt and contour other parts of the body and face, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

What Areas Can Kybella Treat?

Kybella for body and face can selectively dissolve fat cells in a number of common trouble spots. It’s especially effective for areas that have been resistant to diet, exercise, and other sculpting technologies.

With that being said, Kybella can be used for nonsurgical fat removal on the jawline, armpit bulges, bra bulge, back fat, inner knee fat, banana rolls under buttocks, and lower abdominal fat.

Why Consider Kybella for Body and Face?

Kybella is an excellent option for women and men who have small areas of unwanted fat and wish to avoid surgery and downtime.

In fact, most patients who undergo Kybella for body and face are able to return to their busy lives right away.

While they may experience mild swelling for three-to-seven days, recovery is much shorter and easier compared to that of liposuction.

How Many Kybella Treatments Are Recommended?

For optimal fat removal and contouring, most individuals require a series of two-to-four Kybella treatments, spaced six-to-eight weeks apart.
