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. Kybella is injected into the skin beneath the chin where it destroys fat cells, noticeably reducing the fullness under the chin. Kybella is not a temporary fix— once these cells are destroyed by Kybella they can no longer store or build up fat. Once a patient reaches their goal with Kybella, they will not need further treatments.
Kybella is used primarily to treat the presence of unwanted fat at the neck underneath the chin. Injections of Kybella happen over multiple sessions until a patient reaches their aesthetic goal. Kybella is a permanent solution to double chin fat as it eliminates the possibility of the cells under the skin creating fat again. If you have questions about what Kybella can do for you, speak with your dermatologist to explore your options.
We recommend consulting a specialist to help determine if Kybella is the best treatment option for you.
