Dr. Anita Dormer, MD


How does Kybella work?

Kybella is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This substance is found naturally in your body and is responsible for breaking down and absorbing dietary fat.

When it’s injected directly into the problem area, deoxycholic acid from Kybella quickly starts breaking down fat cells. Once they’re destroyed, the cells can no longer store fat, and your chin starts becoming more toned and proportionately defined.

Most clients start noticing an improvement in their jawline within about a month of their Kybella treatment. But it can take up to 2-3 months or more for your system to continue breaking down and flushing out all the destroyed fat cells.

With each passing day, though, you keep losing that unwanted submental fullness. Currently, Kybella is FDA-approved only to get rid of fat underneath your chin, although it might be approved for additional uses in the future.

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells

Do I need more than one Kybella treatment?

Likely, yes. During a Kybella session, Dr. Dormer makes several small injections all over your chin and jawline, based off where it’s needed most. While you’re probably going to notice a big improvement after just one Kybella session, most clients need 2-4 sessions, each spaced a month apart.

Kybella treatments are fast, so you can quickly get in and out during your lunch break. Plus, since you won’t have any downtime and may only experience temporary minor swelling, you can go right back to your regular activities.

Is Kybella permanent?

Yes. Once you achieve optimal results with Kybella, you can expect the look to last a lifetime. The fat only comes back if you gain weight in the future, which sometimes causes new fat cells to develop under your chin.

It’s also possible to experience some skin sagging later on in life as a natural part of aging — this doesn’t necessarily mean fat is accumulating. In this case, you may benefit from Dr. Dormer’s noninvasive skin lifting and tightening treatments, such as Ultherapy®.
