Kybella®

Kybella® “Double Chin” treatment uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown & absorption of dietary fat, to precisely target & break down fat cells below the chin (submental fullness). Our medical team member will place multiple tiny injections just below the surface of the skin at key fat-reduction points specifically targeting pockets of fat that are typically non-responsive to diet & exercise. Once the fat is ruptured, your body naturally works to metabolize & flush the dead cells from your body.  Clients can improve their profile without extensive pain, side effects, or recovery time.

Kybella®: 4-Step Process

  • Step 1: Evaluation

    Our licensed medical team member will mark your neck & chin area & then a topical anesthetic is applied to ensure comfort during the treatment.

  • Step 2: Painless Methods

    Our licensed medical team member will apply a topical anesthetic gel / cream & you will remain in the treatment room for 20-25 minutes while the topical anesthetic gel / cream takes effect, for your comfort.

  • Step 3: Injection Time

    Our licensed medical team member will make multiple small injections under your chin into the fat layer below the skin.  The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin & your desired profile.

    After the injection is complete, the area is cleaned, & a cold compress is applied to minimize swelling.

  • The ideal candidate for Kybella® has submental fat – fat that is full and not smooth. Kybella® tends to work best for people who have moderate fat in their upper neck. Since the procedure is used to destroy fat cells, it doesn’t work for people who have excess skin or loose folds of skin on the neck. 
  • Prior to considering Kybella® an ideal candidate for this treatment should’ve already explored conventional options, healthy eating & exercise for weight loss.
  • Submental fat can be very difficult to eliminate, & conventional tools can’t always get rid of it. If healthy eating & exercise are not working, then Kybella® is the next step.

People who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or under the age of 18.

  • If you are a smoker 3-days prior to Kybella® lay off the cigarettes, doing so will drastically reduce your chances of bruising & hopefully lead to you stopping smoking altogether.
  • 3-days prior to Kybella®? apply Arnicare Cream, a natural cream which has been proven to reduce the effects of bruising.
  • Note: Do not use Arnica Cream if you have active heart disease, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or are taking Coumadin, Lovenox, Heparin, or Xeralto, or are on a medication which affects bloods clotting.
  • Apply an ice pack to your neck before & after your treatment to keep swelling down, vastly reducing the amount of bruising.
