FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How many treatments will I need?

A series of treatments will be individually tailored to your unique chin profile. Multiple injections will be administered under the chin per treatment; up to 6 treatments at least 1 month apart.

You and your Riva provider will determine the number of treatments you may need, based on:

• How much fullness is beneath your chin
• Your aesthetic goals

Who should not receive KYBELLA®?

Do not receive KYBELLA® if you have an infection in the treatment area.

Tell your Riva provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. It is especially important to disclose to your provider if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).

What are the Possible side effects of Kybella®?

The most common side effects include swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

Although rare, Kybella® can cause serious side effects, including:

•    Nerve injury in the jaw (which can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness)
•    Trouble swallowing
•    Injection site problems including: bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your Riva provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area
 
These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®. Call your Riva physician or nurse practitioner for medical advice about side effects.
