What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment for submental fat, also known as a double chin. This injectable can be used to create optimal balance in the face, jawline and neck. Stubborn submental fat is a rising cosmetic concern and many people feel self-conscious about their profile and overall appearance. Luckily, Kybella is an effective treatment for submental fat.* Best of all, there is no surgery or downtime!

How does Kybella work?

Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. When injections are administered under the chin, the product breaks down fat cells and prevents future fat storage.* As submental fat begins to weaken, we are able to contour the neck so that the chin area is well-balanced with the rest of the face. Kybella may be combined with fillers to create the ultimate facial balance.

What can I expect during the procedure?

We recommend that you schedule a consultation to determine if Kybella is the right treatment option for you. During your treatment, we will mark out the area(s) that will be treated with injections. A numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable and tolerable. Multiple injections with a small, fine needle will be made into the fatty tissues under the chin. The entire procedure only lasts a few minutes. You may experience warmth and swelling following your treatment, but it will eventually fade.

What can I expect from the results?

Everyone is different and the number of injections and treatments will depend on the extent of your submental fullness. For many patients, 3-5 treatment sessions are recommended to accomplish the desired results.* Generally, we schedule treatments that are 6 weeks apart, so that time can reveal your results.
