If you’ve struggled with a double chin, you’re certainly not alone. This feature can be attributed to genetics at least as often as lifestyle, so getting rid of a double chin can be far easier said than done. KYBELLA® is a nonsurgical treatment that uses a series of simple injections to smooth away a double chin without surgery.*

How Does KYBELLA Work?
Because a double chin is primarily comprised of subcutaneous fat, this harmless but unsightly bulge is notoriously difficult to lose with diet and exercise alone. KYBELLA is made up of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When injected into a double chin, the product dissolves fat cells, which are then eliminated naturally by the body.*
Before Your KYBELLA Treatment
Before you begin your series of KYBELLA injections, you’ll have a private consultation with one of our Aesthetic Nurses. During this time, you can discuss your appearance goals and learn more about what to expect from KYBELLA. Your Aesthetic Nurse will examine you and determine whether you’re a good candidate for KYBELLA, as well as explain any preparations you should take before starting treatments.
If you struggle with persistent fat bulges in other areas of the body, you might wish to look into some of our nonsurgical body contouring options, such as CoolSculpting® or the YOLO® Curve Lipo Laser, both designed to reduce subcutaneous fat. Ask your Aesthetic Nurse about the most effective treatment option for your needs.*
Your KYBELLA Procedure
Your actual KYBELLA appointment should be quick enough to fit into your lunch hour without disrupting your normal schedule. The injections themselves only take about 15 to 20 minutes. During a single KYBELLA treatment, you’ll have multiple injections placed strategically around the submental region, or the area just beneath the chin. The exact number of injections depends on your goals and the existing amount of fat.*
Recovery & Results
KYBELLA is a nonsurgical procedure that doesn’t require you to take any downtime, so you can return to your other obligations as soon as you leave our office. However, you will develop some bruising, swelling or redness around the treated area. You can cover up these side effects with makeup. These effects should fade gradually over the following days.*
You should notice your results developing over the weeks following your KYBELLA treatments. Your double chin should gradually smooth out, leaving you with a better-defined jawline and a sleeker neck. Most people have anywhere from 3 to 6 KYBELLA treatments, spaced about a month apart, to achieve their desired results.*
