When a double chin appears, Kybella gets to work.

As we age out bodies may begin to change in unflattering ways. Our skin loses its elasticity and fat can begin to accumulate in areas that we find embarrassing. One such area where excess fat can develop is beneath the chin, otherwise known as a double chin. For years, the traditional means for addressing this area was with a neck lift or liposuction, but recently, a new FDA-approved injectable called Kybella offers a non-surgical means for treating a double chin.

What can I expect with Kybella treatments?

During your consultation, a thorough examination of your medical history and any current medical conditions you may have will help to determine if you’re a candidate for this procedure. Once cleared, you will be given a series of Kybella injections to the affected area. Each treatment session may require up to 20 injections, depending on the amount of fat, and should only take around 20 minutes to complete.

Is there any recovery time?

There is no downtime or recovery period after Kybella treatments. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure. You may experience some temporary swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin.

Kybella FAQs

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is injected directly into the fatty areas under the chin and begins to work by destroying the fat cells located in that region. As the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone permanently, giving you long-lasting results. Since its approval by the FDA in 2015, Kybella has been instrumental in helping people reduce fat and achieving better tones and contours in their chin with an improved facial appearance.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Two to six treatment sessions may be needed to maximize results and thoroughly destroy all fat cells under the chin. These treatments will be spaced one month apart from each other to allow proper recovery of the affected area. In some cases, minor bruising or swelling in the area may occur, but these should be relatively short-lived and disappear within a couple days of the procedure. While the results may not be immediately noticeable, the treatment is working, and you will begin to enjoy long-lasting results shortly after your treatments.
