How Does KYBELLA Work?
KYBELLA is identical to the naturally occurring deoxycholic acid our bodies produce to break down and absorb consumed fats. In essence, it dissolves and destroys fat tissues. When injected into targeted areas of fat, it treats only the cells in that area to create a precise and localized slimming effect.
The injectable treatment is FDA-approved to safely and effectively reduce fat under the chin (also called submental fat). At California Cosmetics, we also use it to treat bra bulges, love handles, and other stubborn pockets of fat on the face and body.
Who Is a Good Candidate for KYBELLA?
You may be an ideal candidate if you have localized fat deposits on your neck and body you’re looking to get rid of without surgery. While the most popular treatment area is under the chin (check out our Jawline on Point look), we also treat people who have lumpiness or pockets of fat around the body, often leftover after liposuction or a c-section. Common spots include the:
- Love handles
- Pooch below the belly button
- Bra bulge
- Knee fat
You’ll see the best results if you’re close to your goal weight and want to burn through frustrating bumps or pockets that are keeping you from feeling as confident as possible.
If you’re looking to slim down slightly larger areas, you might want to try CoolSculpting®, another highly popular nonsurgical body contouring option.
What Is It Like to Get a KYBELLA Treatment?
We’ll start by taking plenty of time to get to know you and understand your goals. Using this info, we’ll work with you to design the look you’re going for and create your custom treatment plan.
KYBELLA treatments involve a series of injections along a grid our injection experts design specifically for your targeted area. The injections are quick, usually only taking just a few minutes.
Is KYBELLA Safe?
Yes, it is! Deoxycholic acid has been used for years in other parts of the world to destroy fat cells. KYBELLA was tested in more than 19 clinical studies, during which more than 1,550 people worldwide were treated.
How Should I Prepare for My KYBELLA Appointment?
Here are a few steps you can take to get ready:
- Schedule your appointment with plenty of time before a major event. The swelling after this procedure may take a while to subside.
- Inform our team if you have any history with difficulty swallowing, known allergies, take allergy medications or have ever had an anaphylactic reaction.
- Avoid taking ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or other blood-thinning supplements in the days prior to your procedure. These increase your risk of bruising.
- Wash your face and neck area the day of your procedure. This will help to minimize your risk of infection.
Women who are pregnant or nursing should not get this treatment.
KYBELLA can also be used to eliminate stubborn body fat and help correct post-Lipo irregularities.

What Is KYBELLA Recovery Like?
You can expect to see swelling and puffiness right after your appointment. This lasts for 2 to 3 weeks, though most of it resolves after a few days. Yes, your treated area will look worse before it looks better. But after 4 to 6 weeks, it will look better, and most people find the results are well worth the recovery process.
How Many KYBELLA Treatments Do I Need?
The number of treatments varies from person to person. The traditional approach typically requires a series of 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the amount of fat under the chin. Our approach is to maximize results and minimize treatment time as much as is safe. Many of the people who visit us choose to have more vials injected at once rather than coming back for multiple treatments. This does involve more swelling initially, but also cuts down on extra appointments and gives you the results you’re looking for as efficiently and conveniently as possible.
Our injectors will work with you to design a treatment plan that works best for you. We’ll never talk you into a path that isn’t completely safe and appropriate for you and your goals.
When Will I See My KYBELLA Results?
You’ll start to see results after 4 to 6 weeks as your body metabolizes the fat.
How Long Do KYBELLA Results Last?
KYBELLA results are long-lasting. Once you achieve your desired look, you won’t need touch-up treatments to maintain it. Those treated cells are gone for good!
"I would most definitely recommend this place to anyone who is interested in Juvederm and Botox treatment. I've tried multiple places in the past and this one is the best one I've came across."
~ Tabitha A.
"After arriving they actually convinced me not to overfill my lips and gave me the advice to first dissolve the filler that had moved around so I can achieve a better look. I really appreciated this, because usually these types of places don't really care to actually give you a consultation on how to better the way you look."
“I cannot say enough about California Cosmetics! I have been to several other injectors in OC and they are hands down THE BEST! I am a perfectionist and they are the only ones who get it right every single time.”
