Kybella® is a simple treatment that involves the injection of deoxycholic acid into the submental (underneath chin) area defined by our Nurse Practitioner during a consultation. Kybella® is another safe and non surgical treatment we offer and is performed most of the time with light-numbing agent. With great results after 2-6 treatments for most patients, majority of the patients see long-lasting or permanent results.

On a global scale, Kybella® has been in over 20 clinical studies with over 1600 people treated including feeling happier and looking younger based on their chin profile. They also reported feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight, and less bothered by the fullness under their chin.. These clinical studies paired up with being the only FDA cleared fat-melting injection is what makes Kybella® an amazing solution for non-surgical fat destruction underneath the chin. Also known as a fat dissolving injection. 

What to expect?

Before treatment

Our Nurse Practitioners will review your chart with you and confirm your skincare and what are your beauty goals.

We will discuss the risk factors associated with the KYBELLA® treatment, and any other concerns you may have before to proceed with the treatment.

Share any details including if you have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby); are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk).

Mild discomfort may be experienced, but the process isn’t painful. We will cleanse injection sites to work and we may offer numbing agents as requested by patient.

Once our Nurse Practitioner determines that you are a good candidate for KYBELLA® treatment, the cosmetic procedure is straightforward. A dotted grid marking the injection locations is placed on the treatment area and the solution is injected. Patients may feel a temporary burning sensation during the office visit.

After treatment

After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin.

Use a small bag of frozen pees in a sandwich bag or crushed ice to gently ice the area.  No heavy ice bags.  Ice for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off.  Continue the icing for 48 hours if possible.

We recommend no strenuous exercise for 48 hours in order to reduce swelling and bruising.

For the first 2-3 days sleeping with your head propped up on 2-3 pillows can help minimize swelling under the chin area. Swelling should begin to improve after about 48 hours.

Pineapples have an natural anti-inflammatory properties to them that help to minimize swelling after injections.

It is normal to experience some pain and sensitivity in the area of the injection. Most patients find that Tylenol can help relieve this post-injection pain. Avoid NSAIDs such as Motrin and ibuprofen as these can make swelling and bruising worse.

Frequently Asked Questions About KYBELLA®  Treatments

What is KYBELLA® ?

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.

What are possible side effects of KYBELLA® ?

  • Swelling

  • Pain

  • Numbness

  • Redness

  • Areas of hardness in the treatment area​

KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including:

  • Nerve injury in the jaw 

  • Trouble swallowing

  • Injection site problems, including a collection of blood under the skin (hematoma), infection at the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you begin to develop weakness in the muscles of your face or your smile becomes uneven; have difficulty swallowing, or if any of the symptoms that you already have get worse; develop redness, pain, open sores, or drainage at or from the treatment area.

How does KYBELLA® works?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Where should KYBELLA®  be injected?

Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

How many people have been treated with KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies. More than 1600 people were treated with KYBELLA® in these studies.
