Kybella Injections

Get Rid of Your Stubborn Double Chin with Kybella

Submental fullness, better known as a “double chin,” can be embarrassing. A double chin can make you look heavier than you are, look unflattering in photos, and is resistant to diet and exercise. Annoying fat under the chin is notoriously difficult to get rid of – until now.

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment used to reduce fat under the chin. The injections are made using a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and dissolves unwanted fat.

Who Can Benefit from Kybella Treatments

Men and women can both benefit from the fat-dissolving qualities of Kybella. Kybella patients may also:

  • Have stubborn fat under the chin
  • Can’t reduce a double chin with diet and exercise
  • Want a speedy, non-surgical solution
  • Are interested in a solution using a molecule that occurs in the body

Kybella offers an alternative to neck lifts or liposuction, and you can improve the appearance of your double chin with less downtime and a fast recovery. You can quickly get back to work or other daily activities without caring for incisions or worries about being left with visible scarring.

Kybella Injections – How it Works

Deoxycholic acid, the primary component of Kybella, assists the body in the destruction of fat cells. Once injected into the underside of your chin, the molecules will break down the membrane of fat cells, causing them to collapse and release the fat held within.

Long Term Results with Kybella Treatments

Once the cells have been broken down by Kybella, the body naturally flushes out the unwanted fat, permanently eliminating the treated fat cells and reducing the appearance of your double chin. Once a portion of the fat cells in the area are eliminated, the appearance of a double chin or excess submental fat is reduced, for long-term results.

About the Kybella Procedure

Kybella is a quick and easy treatment to treat submental fullness. The injections usually take less than 30 minutes to complete, and you will soon be able to go about your day without any downtime. No anesthesia, no incisions, no recovery time – the benefits speak for themselves!

What to Expect with Kybella

Once your Kybella injections have been administered, the deoxycholic acid gets to work at once. You will likely begin to see results within the first week after treatment. Your facial contours will continue to improve over the few months following your procedure, continuing to reduce unwanted, unsightly fat beneath the chin as the body naturally flushes out targeted fat cells. The treated fat cells are gone forever.

How Many Kybella Treatments Do I Need?

You may need multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart to achieve the level of tightness you want in the under-chin area. It is also recommended that you follow a healthy diet and engage in an appropriate exercise routine to avoid gaining weight. Even if you do gain, the treated cells are gone, and less fat will accumulate under your chin.
