No More Double Chin

While KYBELLA® is a relatively new treatment, it has quickly gained popularity among those looking for a non-surgical solution to their double chin. It is a safe alternative to liposuction or other surgical procedures and requires little to no downtime. You can return to your regular daily activities immediately following treatment.

KYBELLA® is a safe, FDA-approved, non-surgical injectable treatment for adults looking to reduce submental fat, otherwise known as a double chin. KYBELLA® contains the active ingredient of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body to break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected beneath the chin, KYBELLA® dissolves fat cells so the body's metabolic processes can naturally eliminate them. The result is a noticeable reduction in fullness beneath the chin, revealing an improved chin profile and jawline definition.

KYBELLA® Treatment: What to Expect

Before starting a KYBELLA® treatment, you will come into our Skin Care Doctors’ office so we can assess your facial structure and medical history to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. Our Skin Care Doctors medical provider will then mark the treatment area, typically under the chin, with a grid to ensure precise injections. The treatment usually takes around 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

During your treatment, a series of injections will administer KYBELLA® into the targeted area. The number of required injections will depend on the amount of fat to be removed to achieve your desired results. You may need multiple treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart to allow for proper healing and ensure that the previous treatment has had time to take effect. Pain and discomfort during the treatment are usually minimal.

KYBELLA® Recovery & Results

After KYBELLA® treatment, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area. These side effects are expected and typically subside within a few days to a week. You must avoid strenuous activity and exposure to direct sunlight for at least 24 hours.

​​Results from KYBELLA® treatment are typically seen after two to four sessions, depending on the individual's needs. The process works by destroying fat cells in the targeted area to be removed by the body's natural process. Results may vary from person to person.

Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, with a balanced diet and regular exercise,  will prolong the results of your KYBELLA® treatment. In addition, our providers recommend avoiding weight gain as it can lead to the accumulation of new fat cells in the treated area.
