About Kybella

The formation of a double chin (submental fullness) isn’t always associated with weight gains or being overweight. Even relatively slim individuals can develop double chins because of genetic predisposition, hormones, and other factors. Once you have a double chin, it’s almost impossible to get rid of it with traditional weight loss methods, such as exercise and a balanced diet. Kybella is the world’s first injectable treatment for a double chin.

Kybella is a cosmetic injectable made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that encourages your body to metabolize and expel fat cells. Deoxycholic acid essentially destroys unwanted fat cells to facilitate their expulsion from the body via the lymphatic system. When injected underneath the chin, Kybella focuses the body’s fat metabolism capabilities in the submental region, giving you a slim and chiseled look.

Treatment Areas:

Kybella is FDA-approved to treat submental fullness, i.e., excess fat tissues under the chin.

Am I a suitable candidate for Kybella?

You’re a suitable candidate for Kybella if you’re at least 18 years of age and have moderate to severe fat underneath the chin. You should also have realistic expectations from the treatment, and you shouldn’t be pregnant or nursing. Our cosmetic providers will carefully examine your facial features, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for Kybella.

What happens during the Kybella treatment?

Our cosmetic providers will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel around the chin and neck to ensure complete comfort. After selecting the ideal Kybella dose, it will be injected into the fat in the selected area. Most patients need 10 to 50 injections in one session, depending on your unique goals and requirements.

What are the side effects of Kybella?

You may experience a gentle pinch, followed by a burning sensation. You’ll also experience mild redness, swelling, discomfort, and bruising around the chin for a few days. You can reduce the swelling and bruising with ice packs and cold compresses. However, you can resume most of your daily activities and work immediately.

How many Kybella treatments do I need?

Most patients need 2 to 4 Kybella sessions, spaced a month apart, for optimal results. Our cosmetic providers will recommend the ideal frequency for you. The results will gradually improve over several weeks and months, but the final results are permanent. Once the unwanted fat cells are removed, they won’t return.
