What is Kybella®?

Are you tired of living with extra fat under your chin? Maybe individuals who eat well and exercise still have this fat due to genetics, which can take a toll on their confidence. If you are looking for a nonsurgical solution to a double chin, Kybella® is the answer! This injectable treatment was created to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

Kybella® Candidates

Individuals 18 years and older who are bothered by excess fat under their chin and don’t want to have surgery can often benefit from Kybella®. However, those who are pregnant or nursing should not receive this treatment. Before treatment, one of our injectors will examine the area beneath your chin to determine if Kybella® is the right treatment for you. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment.

The Kybella® Treatment

During your Kybella® treatment, the skin will be cleansed, and a numbing cream applied. Then, multiple small injections will be placed in the area beneath the chin to break down and destroy fat cells. Once these cells are eliminated, they will be naturally absorbed by the body. Treatment can take 15-20 minutes to complete.

What to Expect Following Kybella®

Following your Kybella® injections, patients may experience temporary bruising, redness, numbness, and swelling over the next couple of days, after which you will begin to see noticeable results. The number of treatments required will depend on your individual chin profile and unique goals. Many patients can see results in 2-4 treatments, though up to six treatments may be required.

Once targeted fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, so no further treatment is needed.
