Before Kybella, there was no viable non-invasive option for removing stubborn fat from beneath the chin. Today, Kybella injections can be performed without discomfort or downtime to refine and slim the profile, achieving a more youthful, inviting look while boosting self-confidence.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable formulated with deoxycholic acid, a compound that occurs naturally in the human body and is responsible for eradicating fat cells. Because Kybella gradually rather than instantly metabolizes the fat beneath the chin, patients may need to undergo a series of 3 to 6 sessions spaced out a month apart to see comprehensive improvement. In addition to slimming the jawline, Kybella can also produce a modest skin-tightening effect. Kybella will destroy submental fat cells for good, preventing them from accumulating in the future.

How quickly will I see results?

Are my results permanent?

How quickly will I see results?

Kybella mimics the body’s natural fat removal process, so changes appear gradually, not instantly as with some other injectables. For most patients, it will take around 12 weeks to begin seeing the desired transformation. This is why multiple sessions are usually suggested. Our team will design a customized plan for slimming your profile and achieving the youthful look you envision.

Are my results permanent?

Results with Kybella are considered long-lasting and sustainable for years to come. Once the fat cells in the submental region are destroyed, they do not have the ability to regenerate.

What Can I Expect After Kybella?

After Kybella injections, the treatment area may feel tender for a few weeks. However, most patients can quickly resume their normal activities the next day after their sessions. Mild swelling can be well-hidden with a scarf and any minor bruising or redness can be camouflaged with makeup.
