Kybella procedure

Double-Chin Reduction: Kybella

What is Kybella®?

Kybella®  is an injectable used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”  If you’re bothered by the fullness beneath your chin, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people said they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin, or what your healthcare provider may refer to as “submental fullness associated with submental fat.”

How does Kybella® work?

Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that can be used by adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, which aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat below your chin it causes the destruction of those fat cells, eliminating their capacity to store or accumulate fat going forward.

Benefits of Kybella®

No one wants a double chin but even with excellent diet and exercise, maintaining a healthy body weight and body mass index, some individuals still have a double chin plaguing their every look in the mirror. The amazing benefit of Kybella® from the beauty experts at Southern Beauty Aesthetics is that you can eliminate the double chin, restore your jawline and its FDA-approved.

What is the procedure for Kybella®?

Kybella® is given during an in-office visit. The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes. One of our licensed medical spa professionals will administer a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.​

Recovery from Kybella®

For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment.

Prior to your treatment session, your healthcare provider may apply ice/cold packs to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. He or she may also suggest you take an over-the-counter pain reliever before your appointment. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.

How many treatments will I need?

Kybella® can often achieve visible results in two to four treatments and full results within six treatment sessions all scheduled no less than a month apart.  During your treatment sessions, injections will be made directly into the fat under your chin, getting right at the source of the problem area using multiple injections.

How long will Kybella® last?

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.

How much does Kybella® cost?

Your costs for Kybella® from Southern Beauty Aesthetics will depend in part on the amount of volume needed to reduce fat.  At Southern Beauty Aesthetics we also understand how patients are managing their budgets, which is why we offer financing through CareCredit®.
