Dissolve Your
Double Chin

Kybella is an injectable treatment designed to eliminate submental fat, commonly known as a “double chin.” Its active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, breaks down and absorbs fat cells in the treated area. The result is a smoother, more contoured jawline and neck. Kybella provides a non-surgical solution to redefine your profile and enhance your facial aesthetics.

How Kybella Works

Kybella’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. When injected into the submental fat under the chin, it disrupts the fat cell membranes, causing them to break down. The body then naturally processes and eliminates these fat cells through its metabolic processes. As a result, the treated area experiences a reduced fat volume, leading to a more sculpted and refined appearance in the chin and neck area.

Kybella FAQs

Am I a suitable candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is ideal for individuals with unwanted submental fat or a “double chin.” A consultation with our experienced team can determine if Kybella is the right choice for you. Our medical providers will carefully examine your chin, discuss your goals, review your medical history, and determine if you’re a good candidate for the treatment.

What is the Kybella treatment process like?

Kybella treatment involves a series of injections into the submental area. Our medical providers will cleanse your skin and mark the injection points, following which they’ll administer the appropriate units of Kybella into the targeted areas using ultrafine needles. The procedure is quick and minimally invasive, with little to no downtime.

Is Kybella painful?

Most patients experience mild discomfort during Kybella injections. However, we can apply topical numbing agents before the treatment to enhance comfort.

Are there any side effects of Kybella?

Common side effects may include swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites. These side effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days.

When will I see the results after Kybella treatment?

While some improvement may be noticeable after the first treatment, the most significant results become apparent over several weeks as the body processes and eliminates fat cells.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

The number of Kybella treatments varies depending on your unique anatomy and goals. Most patients need 6 sessions spaced several weeks apart for optimal results. Kybella produces cumulative results, which means you’ll see improved results after each session.

Are Kybella results permanent?

Yes, Kybella results are considered permanent, as the body permanently destroys and naturally eliminates the treated fat cells. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential to prevent the existing fat cells from expanding.

Can Kybella be used in conjunction with other treatments?

Kybella can be used alongside other cosmetic procedures for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Your provider can create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
