How many treatments of Kybella will I need?
It depends. In the studies done on Kybella, most patients need 2-4 treatments spaced at least 1 month apart. Larger “double chins” will need more treatments, while smaller “double chins” will need less treatment. Per manufacturer’s recommendation, up to 6 treatments of Kybella may be performed.
How Many Vials Of Kybella Do I Really Need?
Kybella is an FDA-approved procedure that targets submental fat, which causes the appearance of a double chin. As this procedure is totally non-invasive and involves no downtime, it is ideal for most patients and their hectic schedules.
The treatment formula’s key component, synthetic deoxycholic acid, resembles the natural version found in the body and targets dietary fat. Over time, the treatment surrounds and kills fat cells, providing you with long-term to permanent effects.
While it is famously difficult to reduce submental fat by diet and exercise, this treatment can yield good outcomes in only a few treatments and without the use of surgery.
You might expect a smoother, more beautiful profile and a considerable reduction in your double chin at the end of a customized treatment plan. The effects of this therapy can continue for years or be fully permanent for the majority of individuals.
The amount of injections required to successfully treat submental fat varies from patient to patient. One of West Point Aesthetics Center specialists will work with you to create a tailored treatment program depending on the amount of submental fat under the chin, your schedule, & the outcomes you want.
Most people require 4-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart before seeing the ultimate benefits. However, once those goals are met, you may expect to cherish your new look permanently.

Is there any downtime or side effects?
