KYBELLA FAQ's

How many sessions of KYBELLA will I need?

The number of KYBELLA sessions needed is dependent on your particular desires, and the current amount of fat that needs to be removed. While some patients only need one session, most do need multiple treatments up to a maximum allowed number of six sessions. These should be scheduled at least one month apart to see the full results after each treatment before another session.

KYBELLA is a non-invasive procedure, making a recovery relatively easy. You can return to work immediately after your session. However, you will experience some swelling under the chin that can last for a couple of weeks.

KYBELLA does destroy the fat cells in the area where injected. These fat cells are then eliminated by the body, making KYBELLA a long-term solution once treatment sessions have been completed.
