Submental fullness, commonly known as a double chin, can give you the appearance of being overweight or even make you look older. Some people have a genetic predisposition to developing a double chin. For others, weight gain or the aging process contribute to submental fat. No matter what the cause, a series of minimally invasive injections can gradually, yet permanently, dissolve the fat under your chin, giving you a more pleasing profile. 

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable fat-melting treatment specifically designed to eliminate the dreaded double chin in women and men. The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring molecule in the body that assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat. 

What are the benefits of Kybella®?

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction of submental fullness. Kybella can permanently eliminate your turkey neck, with visible results in 2 to 4 treatments, although you may need up to 6 treatments to achieve your desired profile.

How does Kybella® work?

Kybella destroys the fat cells under the chin so that they can no longer store or accumulate fat. After the fat cells die, your body flushes them out. Once you have reached your treatment goal, you should not need any additional injections. Each treatment session takes 15-20 minutes and is performed one month apart.
