KYBELLA

The First & Only Injectable Double Chin Treatment

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.

Commitment is key to Rejuvalase’s Kybella treatment. You may see an improvement from the very first appointment, but it’s important to remember that all 3 sessions must be done before your maximum result can be achieved. Most providers prefer to not even gauge a client’s result after only the first session. A treatment this safe and effective can still only be done by medical professionals, and though almost every person is a candidate, a consultation with one of Rejuvalase’s injectors is strongly recommended to create your own personal treatment regimen.

How does KYBELLA work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

Is KYBELLA right for me?

How many people have been treated with KYBELLA?
KYBELLA has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA.

Will I experience any side effects?
The safety profile of KYBELLA is well characterized. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. KYBELLA can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.2 These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.

How many treatments will I need?
You and your provider will customize your KYBELLA treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many clients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your provider will administer KYBELLA into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.

How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA is not expected.
