Remove Your Double Chin with Kybella

If your double chin bothers you, you’re not alone. Many men feel self-conscious about excess fat under the chin because it can add the illusion of age, weight, or both. Removing a double chin can have a dramatic impact on the appearance of your face and profile, which is why Kybella is so in demand. 

Key Benefits of Kybella Injections

As the only FDA-approved injectable that specifically targets submental fat, Kybella has been revolutionary in the world of aesthetics. Here’s why patients love it:

  • Achieves a more sculpted chin and profile
  • No anesthesia, incisions, or recovery
  • Convenient non-invasive procedure
  • Treatments take 15-20 minutes
  • Minimal pain and little downtime 
  • Results are long-lasting
  • Boosted self-esteem and confidence 

Who Gets Kybella?

Many men who choose Kybella to reduce their double chin are fit and healthy individuals who just can’t seem to lose excess fat in this area. Even with a good diet and regular exercise, submental fat can be very persistent. This is because it’s often genetic, which makes it nearly impossible to lose naturally.  

How Kybella Works

The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which a compound that’s found within the body to help break down and absorb fat. When Kybella is injected, it destroys the fat cells — and over the next several weeks, these destroyed fat cells will be metabolized by the body and flushed out through the lymphatic system. 

What to Expect in a Kybella Treatment

Before the injections are administered, numbing cream will be applied to the submental area, as well as a temporary tattoo dot grid to guide your provider. Kybella requires 10-50 injections, which takes approximately 10 minutes. After the injections, the area will be wrapped with a compression garment.

Downtime and Results

  • Your chin may feel sore and may appear swollen from two days to a few weeks
  • Swelling typically peaks 24 hours after the first Kybella treatment 
  • You may also experience bruising, burning, or numbness during recovery
  • For optimal results, we recommend 2-4 treatments scheduled six weeks apart 
  • Once your treatment series is complete, there’s no need for maintenance sessions
