Rediscover Your Youthful Contours

Whether it has developed as a part of the aging process or has simply been a part of your facial profile for as long as you can remember, it’s never particularly exciting to notice a double chin looking back at you in the mirror each day. Often caused by a condition known as submental fullness (which simply describes the presence of excess fatty tissue under the chin and/or jawline), the double chin can now be handily dismissed thanks to an effective injectable solution known as Kybella. This treatment can quickly and easily help you address the presence of a double chin so you can show the world a more pleasing and contoured look, and can do so without requiring that you interrupt your rewarding personal schedule with any kind of extended recovery period.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is the only injection available that can help you get rid of your double chin. Until recently, liposuction in the face and neck was the only way to get rid of the excess skin and fat underneath our chin, which is very difficult to eliminate through exercise. Many people experience this fullness in their chin due to weight, age, or even genetics. This excess skin and fat near the chin can add years to the face and make you appear heavier than you actually are.

Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule the body uses to help break down and absorb fat. The injection works by slowly dissolving fat cells, which the body then safely reabsorbs. The result is a smoother and more contoured chin. The fat cells destroyed by the injection are permanently eliminated and do not return. After you finish a series of Kybella treatments, you will not need follow-up treatments to maintain results.

Who Qualifies for Kybella®?

To qualify for this particular treatment, it’s recommended that you have excess submental fat that is causing a double chin. A member of our aesthetics team will evaluate your physical characteristics to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. Some factors that may be considered include your overall health, medical history, and the amount of submental fat present.

Kybella may not be suitable for patients who have excess skin or sagging in the chin and neck area, as it is designed to target submental fat. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also avoid Kybella treatment. Should we find that this treatment isn’t ideal for you, rest assured: We’ll be able to guide you to an alternative option that will still enable you to enjoy your ideal result, thanks to our impressively robust selection of both surgical and non-surgical treatment options.

The Day of Your Kybella Injections

Quick and Easy

The length of your Kybella procedure will vary depending on the number of injections required and the size of the treatment area. In general, each injection session typically takes about 15 to 20 minutes. You may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.


Prior to receiving the treatment, you will have a consultation with a healthcare provider to evaluate your candidacy for Kybella and advise you to avoid alcohol, anti-inflammatory medications, and blood-thinning medications for several days before the treatment.

The Injection Process

When you arrive at our office, your practitioner will prepare you with a topical numbing cream to ensure that you’re comfortable throughout the experience before using a very fine gauge needle to carefully make your injections according to your personalized treatment plan. Most patients report that their discomfort is surprisingly minimal during this part of the process, and our team will always work to ensure that your experience with us is a delightful one.

The Recovery Period

The recovery period after the treatment is typically minimal, with many patients returning to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising. The results of Kybella treatment can vary depending on the individual patient and the amount of submental fat present, with most patients reporting a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their double chin after undergoing the treatment.
