KYBELLA® is an option submental fullness under the chin, also known as a double chin. This injection treatment can reduce the need for procedures like liposuction or a surgical neck lift. KYBELLA® is made by Allergan Biopharmaceuticals, the same company that produces Botox and Juvederm.
How does it work?*
KYBELLA® is made of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring stomach acid, that helps break down and absorb fat during digestion. When injected into the double chin area, KYBELLA® targets fat cells to contour the neck and accentuate your natural jawline, thereby decreasing the amount of fat. Some of our younger patients have noticed lifted and tightened skin as well.
How is the injection performed?*
KYBELLAÂ® is performed by a formally trained medical professional. Typically, 3-4 injection sessions are needed to reach full results, but this can vary for each patient. The exact results that you experience will depend on the amount of excess fat under your chin.
How can I prepare?*
No special preparation is needed for KYBELLAÂ® injections. Your medical professional will help determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
What can I expect after my injection?*
You might experience slight discomfort (burning and tingling) for 30 minutes immediately following treatment. Some patients also experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and tenderness to touch after treatment. These side effects go away quickly. Side effects lessen with each subsequent treatment. Patients may take pain relievers like ibuprofen after treatment.
