KYBELLA® is the only injectable treatment that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to eliminate excess fat under the chin. KYBELLA® is composed of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. After KYBELLA® is injected into the submental fat, it destroys fat cells so that this area is no longer able to store or accumulate fat. If you have a “double chin” our team of medical professionals can use KYBELLA® to reduce submental fullness and help you achieve a more sculpted, youthful profile.

KYBELLA® is a safe, nonsurgical option for reducing submental fullness and fat. If you are bothered by a “double chin,” KYBELLA® may be a great option for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prior to your KYBELLA® treatment, one of our skilled providers will consult to determine how many vials will be used for your treatment. The price of the treatment varies depending on how much KYBELLA® is used and the number of treatments necessary to see results. You may need anywhere from one to six treatments, spaced one month apart to achieve optimum results. To make the procedure more comfortable we offer several options for anesthesia including: topical numbing cream, lidocaine injections, and/or topical cold spray. The provider will map out the area to be injected and then administer KYBELLA® injections into the submental fat. Immediately following injection, you may experience a temporary cramping sensation in the treatment area.
Following your KYBELLA® treatment you may experience mild to moderate swelling, redness, and numbness in the injection site. Some patients also experience bruising that lasts up to two weeks. Results develop over eight weeks following the treatment. Based on your treatment goals and the amount of the fat under your chin, you may choose to treat again to achieve the best results.
