Correct: Submental fullness otherwise known as a “double chin”
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a FDA-approved injectable treatment that uses a naturally occurring substance called deoxycholic acid, which targets fat cells. When administered, this injectable is used for breaking down fat underneath the chin and reducing the appearance of a double chin.
How does Kybella work?
When injected into the fat beneath the skin, Kybella permanently destroys the fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism will break down the destroyed fats from the treatment area. You are left with a noticeable reduction in the fullness of the area injected.
What does Kybella treat?
Many people suffer from submental fullness, also known as a “double chin.” It may be something you have had your whole life or something that has developed over the years. Even those who practice a well-balanced diet and proper exercise may have a hard time losing fat in this area. Patients report that fat beneath their chin causes them to feel embarrassed, look older, and look overweight. Kybella can help! Ask us how Kybella can help improve your appearance.

What can I expect during my Kybella treatment?
During your treatment, we will cleanse your skin, apply a numbing agent and mark the area of your skin where we will apply the Kybella injections. We will administer a few quick injections below your chin. The whole process will take about 45 minutes. Most patients require 2-4 treatments spaced a month apart for optimal results with minimal downtime. Your Expert clinician will help decide how many treatments you will need.
The fat reduction will be permanent and therefore once your treatment plan is complete, you will not need touch-ups or additional treatments. Skin tightening procedures such as the BBL photofacial, Venus Viva or Venus Freeze will complement this treatment. Ask our providers to suggest the correct treatment for you.
