Proven Safety and Efficacy

In 2015, the FDA gave its approval for Kybella injectable treatment for the cosmetic reduction of moderate to severe pockets of unwanted fat under the chin. With this approval, Kybella now holds the distinction of being the first and only injectable med spa procedure to be approved by the FDA specifically for chin fat reduction. A number of scientific studies and clinical trials have successfully demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of Kybella for fat reduction in the submental area. Positive feedback from both patients and physicians has further added to the rapidly rising popularity of this treatment. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas for Kybella.  

How does Kybella Work?

The primary active ingredient in Kybella injections is deoxycholic acid. This is a natural occurring agent in the human body, which makes Kybella a biocompatible medication. This biochemical performs the function of supporting natural fat absorption in the body. When this active agent is delivered to the targeted fat layers underneath the chin via Kybella injections, it triggers disruption of the cellular membrane in the unwanted fat cells. The fat cells consequently start getting eliminated from the area. It is important to recognize that Kybella injections are powerful, and should only be administered by a qualified provider. An incorrect delivery of the injections can result in unintended disintegration of surrounding healthy tissue in the chin area.  

How to Select a Kybella Provider?

Amy G. Egan, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director of the Office of Drug Evaluation III in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research recommends that only a licensed medical professional should offer Kybella injections. The treatment provider should inform the patient beforehand about the risks and complications that may be associated with Kybella drug. The provider should also inform the patient that the FDA has approved Kybella only for the treatment of submental fat below the chin. Kybella’s efficacy in treating fat pockets in other parts of the body is not yet established.  

Injection Protocol

The provider should place the Kybella injections directly into the targeted fat tissue under the chin. Multiple injections are usually provided in one treatment session. The patient may receive a maximum of six Kybella treatments, with each session at least four weeks apart. Kybella drug must not be diluted or blended with other compounds.
