Reduce moderate to severe fullness under your chin and reveal an improved chin profile.
As people age, excess fat often develops under the chin creating what is called a double chin or a turkey neck. KYBELLA is a non-surgical intervention used to address this fat beneath the chin. Over multiple sessions, KYBELLA is injected into the skin beneath the chin where it destroys fat cells, noticeably reducing the fullness under the chin. This treatment is a permanent solution to double chin fat as it eliminates the possibility of the cells under the skin creating fat again.
On the day of your treatment, the area will be cleaned and a pattern of injection dots will be applied under the chin. The area will be iced before and after treatment to aid in your comfort. A series of specifically placed tiny injections are injected to the submental fat with a fine sterile needle. Any discomfort will improve and diminish within hours after treatment.
*Keep in mind that treatment cannot be performed on skin in the neck area that is inflamed or irritated at the time of treatment. Please call the office prior to your appointment if you have any type of skin irritation present on the day of treatment.
* If you need to cancel or reschedule, please give us a 24-business-hour notice to avoid any late cancellation fees.
Patients should expect redness, bruising and soreness at injection sites. After treatment, a pressure ice bandage will be applied. Immediate and severe swelling post treatment will last for one week with residual swelling for up to a full eight weeks.
Patients require two to five treatments to see desired results depending on the severity of their submental fat. These treatments are spaced six to eight weeks apart. The number of treatments will be estimated at your consultation appointment.
True results can be appreciated after eight weeks once the potential swelling has resolved. We will take photos at your follow-up visit to assess the results.
Treatment should not be performed on patients who are pregnant, nursing or on skin that is infected, inflamed or irritated at the time of treatment.
