What is Kybella?

When you look in the mirror, are you bothered by your double chin? Perhaps you have always had excess fat beneath your chin, or maybe it has appeared over time. If this sounds like you, you may be able to benefit from Kybella!

Kybella is an injectable medication used to eliminate excess fat below the chin, also known as submental fat. It contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, which helps with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells, which results in a slimmer chin and neck profile.

This treatment offers the following benefits:

  • A slimmer chin profile.
  • No surgery is needed.
  • Quick, in-office treatment.
  • Long-lasting results.

Candidates for Kybella

Adults 18 years and older who are looking to eliminate a double chin for a slimmer chin and neck profile can often benefit from Kybella. However, be sure to let us know if you have had or plan to have surgery on your chin, neck, or face, have a bleeding problem, or are pregnant or breastfeeding as this treatment may not be right for you. For further information regarding candidacy and if this treatment is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

The Treatment

To begin, a topical numbing cream will be administered under your chin to make sure you are comfortable. During your treatment session, your injector will first map out where the injections will be administered. Then, a small needle will be used to inject Kybella, which usually takes 15-20 minutes. The exact number of injections required during your session will depend on your desired results and the amount of fat located under your chin.

Following your treatment, you may experience mild and temporary swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and hardness in the treatment area. The number of treatments needed will vary depending on your individual goals. If you require a series of treatments, each Kybella session should be given at least one month apart, and you should not receive more than six treatments.
