For many people going through the effort of losing weight, the double chin is a difficult area to get rid of. This double chin treatment – derived from deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in the body – is used to improve this moderate to severe submental (space between the head and the neck) fullness. Kybella is a great alternative to invasive procedures (such as liposuction). It is quick, non-invasive, and requires little to no downtime.
(*2 to 4 vials per Kybella treatment, multiple Kybella treatments recommended)
Small injections are administered into the fat of the submental region under the chin. Only minimal discomfort is experienced.
A single treatment lasts 15-20 minutes. Typically, multiple treatments are required, spaced 1 month apart. Complimentary consultations are available to discuss the estimated amount of Kybella needed, as well as a general estimate of the treatment cost.
For more information, please refer to your patient portal. Our licensed skincare experts will sit down with you to discuss all aspects of the treatment and ensure that it aligns with your goals. They will also work with you to minimize discomfort and/or side effects during and after the treatment. Possible side effects include:
These can be reduced by using ice packs before and after the procedure.
You can see improvement in 1 month, and the peak effect is reached in 3 months.
Kybella is a safe treatment for both men and women over the age of 18 who do not have excessively loose skin in the neck and chin area. It is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women, or if there is an injection at the injection site.
