Welcome to Revive Medical Spa

Define your Profile

The area underneath the chin is a natural place for the body to deposit fat. Many of our clients are not happy with the look of fullness this can cause. Excess fat beneath the chin can be the result of normal weight gain, the aging process, or even your own genetics. Even those who live a healthy lifestyle and are at a normal weight can experience a “double chin.”

Why Try Kybella in Fairbanks?


When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. These cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin for an improved chin profile.


The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.


Using Kybella injections to treat your double chin in Fairbanks will save you significant time, money, and pain versus traditional surgical methods.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kybella and how does it work?

Kybella utilizes an active ingredient that is naturally produced by the body. This substance breaks down fat and removes it from the body naturally. When Kybella comes into contact with the fat cells underneath the chin, this active ingredient destroys them. Then, over time, the fat is naturally and permanently eliminated from your body. The result is a more contoured, defined profile which enhances your overall appearance.

Do men get Kybella?

We routinely see male patients for Kybella in Fairbanks to address their various aesthetic concerns. Injectables can be a very quick, effective, and noninvasive way to treat what’s bothering you! If you’re interested in learning more about what treatments may be best for you, feel free to use our Virtual Consultation Tool for instant, personalized feedback.

Can Kybella be used in any other areas?

Currently, Kybella is only FDA approved to be used to reduce fat under the chin, commonly called a double chin.

How long will the fat be gone after Kybella injections?

Once Kybella treats and destroys the fat cells beneath the chin, this is permanent. Future changes in weight, lifestyle, or hormones may influence the overall increase in fullness in the area as a reflection of total body changes. However, Kybella is designed to totally destroy fat cells in the first place, so they cannot return.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Depending on the amount of fat underneath your chin, along with your overall aesthetic goals, the number of treatments may vary. Many patients experience visible results in 3 to 5 Kybella treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.

How long will it take to see my final results from Kybella?

Kybella results are not instant. It takes between three to six months for the injection to destroy the fat cells, and for those fat cells to be naturally eliminated by the body.

Does Kybella hurt?

At Revive Medical Spa, we are not only dedicated to helping you achieve your goals; we want you to be comfortable throughout the process! Luckily, most of our patients report little discomfort from Kybella injections in Fairbanks. There can be some swelling or bruising following the procedure. Our team will provide you with post-treatment instructions for how to properly care for your skin in the days and weeks that follow to help you feel comfortable and satisfied with your treatment.

Is Kybella the only nonsurgical procedure you offer for double chins?

Revive Medical Spa offers other alternatives to Kybella in Fairbanks should a patient decide they do not want Kybella injections. Certain patients also may not be a candidate. For these patients and for your overall convenience, we also offer Sculpsure for nonsurgical fat reduction of a double chin.
