Excess fat at the neck area, or a double chin, can add both age and weight to your entire appearance. Kybella™ is an extraordinary treatment that has the ability to remove this excess fat, resulting in a more sculpted and contoured face and profile. 

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When Kybella shots are injected into subcutaneous fat, the underlying fat cells are destroyed and cannot rejuvenate. Typically anyone who is over 18 years old, is in good health, and has moderate to severe submental fat can get Kybella treatments.

About Kybella

Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable to treat a double chin without surgery. Due to the limited options for correction, submental fat (a double chin) has been an under-treated aesthetic issue—until 2015, when Kybella was FDA approved. In many cases, a double chin does not respond to lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, because it is usually caused by genetics. 

Before Kybella, there was very little that could be done about submental fat, except to wear turtlenecks and scarves, or get a surgical liposuction treatment. However, Kybella is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure makes it possible to ditch your double chin and achieve a tighter, more contoured look without all the downtime. It’s a fat-dissolving injectable that has revolutionized the world of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. In fact, many in the cosmetic industry are calling Kybella the biggest innovation since Botox. 

Before & After

Your Kybella consultation

One of the most important aspects of any successful cosmetic procedure is careful preparation via a thorough discussion. Before your Kybella double chin treatment, your doctor or aesthetic nurse will go over your questions, concerns, hopes for outcome, and medical history. This is done to assure your safety and the best possible results. You will also be informed about any possible side effects with Kybella, which can include bruising, swelling, discomfort, redness, and/or temporary hardness in the treated area.

What to expect during treatment

Before your Kybella treatment begins, a topical anesthetic may be given to you. Then, using a special grid, your doctor or aesthetic nurse will carefully draw the boundaries for the injections on your skin. He or she will then use the temporary grid marked on your chin as a guide, administering anywhere from 14 to 50 injections, depending on your particular needs. The procedure is simple and straightforward, taking roughly 20 minutes to complete. 

How many treatments are needed?

Your Kybella treatment will be customized to your aesthetic goals for an improved face and profile. The majority of treated patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least six weeks apart (depending on the degree of fat and the area involved). During your consultation, you will be told how many treatments you will need. 

Results from Kybella

Most patients begin see noticeable results after two to three Kybella treatment sessions. The number of treatments required will depend on the amount of fat being eradicated. Once your aesthetic goal has been reached, there’s no need for further treatment. When Kybella kills those fat cells, they’re gone for good.
