The Ultimate Solution to a Double Chin

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat to destroy fat cells under the chin. This is the ultimate solution for those who are self-conscious about their double chin and want a more defined jawline without surgery. Kybella injections are quick and relatively painless, with minimal downtime.

Kybella Corrects:

  • Double chin
  • Excess fat under the chin (submental fullness)
  • Loss of definition in the jawline
  • A “heavy” or “full” appearance on the lower face

How Kybella Works

Kybella works by using a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells.

Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, and they’re eventually expelled from the body via the lymphatic system. Over time, there’s a noticeable reduction of fullness under the chin.

Benefits of Kybella:

  • Non-surgical treatment option for submental fullness
  • Minimal downtime and quick treatment sessions
  • FDA-approved for safety and effectiveness
  • Gradual and natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting, with treated fat cells unable to accumulate fat again
  • Create a more defined jawline

Candidates for Kybella:

  • Have moderate to severe submental fullness (double chin)
  • Are self-conscious about their double chin
  • Don’t want to undergo liposuction
  • Have tried dieting and regular exercise without success
  • Are in generally good health
  • Have realistic expectations about the treatment results
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding

Your Kybella Experience

Your Kybella experience will begin with a consultation with our trained medical professionals to assess your individual needs and goals. Together, you will plan the treatment and determine the number of sessions needed to achieve your desired results. During the treatment, a small amount of Kybella will be injected into the fat under the chin using a fine needle. The number of injections depends on your condition and goal. The procedure is relatively painless and takes only a few minutes.

Side Effects & Recovery

Kybella is generally well-tolerated, but like any medical treatment, it can cause some side effects. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, numbness, pain, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. These side effects are usually mild and resolve within a few days. There is minimal downtime, and most people return to normal activities immediately after the treatment, but strenuous activities and alcohol consumption should be avoided.

Results & Permanence

The results of Kybella treatment will typically be seen after 2-4 sessions, with optimal results usually seen 4-6 weeks after the last treatment. The number of sessions depends on the amount of fullness under the chin. The treatment results are long-lasting, as the destroyed fat cells cannot return. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to sustain the results. While the same fat cells can’t return, your existing fat cells can still expand if you gain weight.
