What to Expect During Treatment
Kybella can be administered right in our office during a quick and easy treatment session. We can supply a topical numbing cream so that you’re comfortable during the injection process. Once you’re ready, the product is injected in a grid pattern under the chin so that it’s evenly distributed based on your goals and the amount of fat you have present. This requires multiple small injections. Overall, each treatment session takes between fifteen and twenty minutes and you can return home afterward.

A double chin can be famously hard to get rid of, especially if you’re otherwise at a healthy weight. For some people, a double chin is simply genetic and can make you look heavier than you actually are. It can also make it difficult to feel comfortable with your profile or while taking pictures. Although some people opt for surgery to improve a double chin, Kybella® is one effective non-surgical option that can produce results with just a few easy injection sessions.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment made with deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule found in the digestive system which helps break down fat. When it’s injected under the skin, it can begin to metabolize stubborn fat cells over time, slimming the jaw and enhancing your natural contours. Some of the traditional methods for reducing a double chin include surgical techniques like liposuction, but it’s normal to want to avoid surgery. Kybella is an excellent option for slimming your chin without the downtime or risks that come with a surgical procedure.
Most patients require a package of treatments for the best results. These are usually spaced about one month apart to allow your body time to naturally flush out the fat cells. It’s normal to experience some swelling and redness under your chin after each session, and this can be managed with an ice pack and over-the-counter painkillers. After one or two treatment sessions, you’ll begin to see your results emerge. For best results, you should be sure to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid excessive weight gain.
