Kybella is the use of injections directly into the mesoderm to treat small fat pocket accumulation locally. Kybella is injected into the under-chin area to improve your profile.

  • Can give you a younger and learner appearance
  • A non-invasive process with little to no downtime
  • Results within 4-6 weeks

Preparing For Your Treatment

What is Kybella?

KYBELLA® is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, destroying fat cells and producing gradual results. The number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals



Remember, bruising may last for 14 days or more after treatment. Avoiding the medications and herbals mentioned above may help reduce bruising.


Kybella is a prescription, FDA-approved medication used to improve the appearance of stubborn fat below the chin, frequently referred to as a ‘double chin.’

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin’s treatment area to improve your profile.

Kybella injections are generally recommended for individuals at least 18 years of age who are concerned about the appearance of submental fullness. Submental fullness can affect anyone regardless of their lifestyle choices, age, or weight. This condition is often a result of genetics. As a result, you will probably be considered an excellent candidate if you lead a healthy lifestyle.

You will notice a difference after about four to six weeks. After completing the recommended number of Kybella treatments in about eight weeks, you should see optimal results.

Yes, it is! Kybella permanently eliminates fat cells under your chin, preventing new ones from forming.

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. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.

The procedure has minimal discomfort, but if a patient is sensitive to needles, local anesthetic or numbing cream can be used. 

Patients who make a commitment to maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle following treatment should see long lasting results. Some patients may desire maintenance every 6-12 months.
