Kybella Treatment

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to reduce double chins. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and you will need to return for follow-up treatments every six months or as directed by your doctor. It’s an easy, nonsurgical solution for those who are looking to improve their appearance by reducing fat in this area.

Are you the right candidate?

The best candidates are adults 18 years of age or older who have moderate to severe fat under their chin. You might not be a good candidate if you have had or are planning to have facial surgery if you have trouble swallowing, are pregnant or nursing, or have an infection or medical condition in or near the planned injection site. If you don’t qualify for Kybella, we recommend seeking out other treatments like liposuction or surgery. But if you’re ready for a change, this could be it!

The procedure

Kybella is a prescription injection that destroys fat cells in the area under your chin so they can’t store fat anymore. This procedure has been clinically proven to destroy fat cells in the chin area which means it can no longer store any more fat – giving you an instant jawline! 

The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes and involves 20 to 50 injections under the chin. The area will be marked and numbed before injection. The acid gradually then begins to kill the fat over the following weeks. You are able to have 6 sessions per year with each spaced out to one every 2 months. 

You can finally say goodbye to those annoying jiggles! Kybella is an easy way for people who are unhappy with their double chins or excess fatty deposits on their neckline or jawline to get rid of them once and for all. And it’s not just about looks – there are many health benefits associated with getting rid of these unwanted bulges too.
