What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment for submental fat, also known as a double chin. This injectable can be used to create optimal balance in the face and neck. Submental fat is a rising cosmetic concern and many people feel self-conscious about their profile and overall appearance. Kybella is an effective treatment for submental fat.*

How it works

Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. When injections are administered under the chin, the product breaks down fat cells and prevents future fat storage. As submental fat begins to weaken, we are able to contour the neck so that the chin area is well-balanced with the rest of the face. Kybella may be combined with fillers to create the ultimate facial balance.

What to expect during your appointment

We recommend that you request a consultation with Stephanie Gho, MS PA-C to determine if Kybella is the right treatment option for you. During your treatment, Stephanie will mark out the area that will be treated with injections. A numbing agent may be used to make the procedure more comfortable and tolerable. Multiple injections with a small, fine needle will be made into the fatty tissues under the chin. The entire procedure only lasts a few minutes. You may experience warmth and swelling following your treatment, but it will fade eventually.

What to expect from the results

Everyone is different and the number of injections and treatments will depend on the extent of your submental fullness. For many patients, 3-5 treatment sessions are recommended to accomplish the desired results.* Generally, we schedule treatments that are 6 weeks apart, so that time can reveal your results.
