The appearance of a double chin can cause significant self-consciousness. You may develop a double chin for numerous reasons, including genetic predisposition, even if you are otherwise fairly slim. Kybella allows us to dissolve and remove excess unwanted fat with a few injections.
Eliminate Unwanted Submental Fullness
You may develop excess submental fat tissues, also known as a double chin, for numerous reasons — hormonal changes, genetics, or weight fluctuations. Once you have a double chin, it’s almost impossible to remove it through exercise and diet alone. That’s because you can’t target specific pockets of fat with exercise. If you want to eliminate submental fullness without undergoing surgery, we have the ideal non-surgical solution — Kybella injections.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is the world’s first non-surgical, injectable fat reduction treatment FDA-approved for submental fullness. When injected into targeted areas under the chin, Kybella can dissolve and destroy excess fat cells, helping you achieve a slimmer and more contoured chin and jawline. If you have a double chin resistant to exercise and dieting, Kybella is the solution for you.

How does Kybella work?
Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that encourages your body to absorb excess fat. When Kybella is injected into targeted regions under the chin, synthetic deoxycholic acid destroys the membranes of the unwanted fat cells, facilitating their gradual absorption by the body. The unwanted fat cells are flushed into the lymphatic system, following which they’re removed from the body, helping you achieve a chiseled jawline.
What happens during the Kybella treatment?
The Kybella treatment is fairly simple. The medical provider carefully examines your chin, discusses your goals and concerns, and curates a personalized treatment plan. After administering a numbing gel to ensure comfort, the appropriate volume of Kybella is carefully injected into the targeted tissues using ultrafine needles. Most patients need 10 to 50 Kybella injections under the chin over a few minutes.
What are the side effects of Kybella?
Kybella produces minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites. The side effects usually dissipate in a few days.
Is there any downtime?
Kybella doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a day.
How many Kybella sessions will I need?
Most patients need around 4 Kybella treatments spaced a month apart for optimal results. Each Kybella treatment will remove additional fat cells — the exact number of sessions depends on your unique goals and your doctor’s recommendation.
Are the results permanent?
Kybella produces permanent results. Once your fat cells are absorbed and expelled via the lymphatic system, they can’t return. However, the existing fat cells under your chin can still expand if you gain weight, so you must maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet.
