Kybella Double Chin Removal

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment for double chin removal. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once the fat cells are destroyed, these cells cannot store, accumulate, or grow fat in the treated area ever again.

How Kybella Works

Kybella is administrated by injection in our office. The solution dissolves fat almost immediately using deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. The dissolved fat is then processed through your body’s natural metabolism. It generally takes at least two treatments to achieve desired effect.

What To Expect For A Kybella Visit

The overall treatment takes between 30 to 60 minutes. Thirty minutes are assigned to the injections, while any extra time is used to numb, prepare, or soothe the treatment area.

Prior to your treatment you should take 800mg of Ibuprofen to help ease the discomfort. We will apply an anesthetic or numbing cream to the area as well and provide ice backs and other cooling techniques to make your overall process as painless as possible.

Post your procedure, you will experience swelling in the treated area along with redness, numbness, and potential bruising and/or nodules at the injection sites. The initial level of swelling lasts for 4-5 days and gradually subsides over the next 4-6 weeks. Numbness and tightening of the skin in the treated area is also common during this time.

Depending on the amount of fat, surface area, and improvement desired, most Kybella treatments require a minimum of two treatment sessions. Permanent results will become noticeable in about 6-8 weeks. After your desired results are achieved, further treatment is not expected!
