- Are you bothered by a double-chin?

Reduce your double-chin without surgery or downtime.
Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment used in adults to improve your appearance by helping to reduce a double-chin.
What causes a double-chin?
Submental fullness—commonly referred to as double-chin—is a common yet under-treated facial esthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Causes may include:
- Aging. A double-chin may naturally develop as you age.
- Weight Gain. A double-chin may be a result of gaining weight.
- Genetics. Simply said, a double-chin may be part of your DNA.
A double-chin can make you look older and heavier than you actually are. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away. You are not alone. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 68% of people said they’re bothered by submental fullness*
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
How is Kybella administered?
Kybella is given in a 15-20 minute office visit. We will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session. We will customize your Kybella treatment based on the amount of submental fullness you have and your treatment goals. Together, we’ll decide the treatment plan that’s right for you.
How many Kybella treatments will I need?
Many patients treated with Kybella experience visible contouring of their chin profile with only 2 to 4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve results. Once your chin profile has improved, you may not need to be treated with Kybella again.
Is there any downtime with Kybella?
For most patients, downtime is minimal and occurs most commonly after the first treatment session. When scheduling your treatments, please keep your social plans and work commitments in mind.
Kybella is not for everyone. All medical procedures involve risk and results are not guaranteed. The most common side effects of Kybella include: swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. These are not all of the possible side effects of Kybella.
