When Should I get Kybella Treatments?
Do you have a double chin despite maintaining a healthy weight? A double chin is hard to hide—you can only wear so many turtlenecks and scarves. Liposuction is a solution, but it’s invasive and painful. Luckily, there’s a new, non-surgical treatment called Kybella that safely and permanently reduces stubborn chin fat to give you the refreshed, thinner profile you’ve always wanted.
What Is Kybella?
A double chin is clinically known as submental fullness, or the accumulation of excess fat under the chin. You may be prone to submental fullness due to genetics, advancing age, or weight gain. Kybella is an injectable solution that’s FDA approved for moderate to severe chin fat removal. The solution targets and destroys fat cells in the chin, giving you a slimmer, more youthful looking profile.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella uses an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body to help break down and absorb the fat found in food. When deoxycholic acid is injected into a double chin, the molecule destroys fat cells, giving your chin a slimmer appearance. Additionally, once the fat cells in the target area are destroyed, fat cannot accumulate there again, making Kybella a permanent treatment plan.
What Happens During a Kybella Treatment Session?
Your doctor will assess your unique chin profile and create a treatment plan for you. During your session, you’ll receive multiple injections in the treatment area. The injections are not painful. Most patients report a small stinging sensation that resolves quickly. Clinical studies show that about 59 percent of Kybella patients required six injection sessions at one month intervals to achieve their desired results. Many patients notice results in as few as two to four treatments.
What Are the Benefits of Choosing Kybella?
There are many benefits to choosing Kybella to remove stubborn chin fat. They include:
- Fat removal without surgery
- Quick, easy treatments in a doctor’s office
- Little discomfort
- No downtime
- Fast results
Common side effects of Kybella include swelling and pain at the injection site, numbness, bruising, and redness.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Kybella?

- You can’t lose your double chin through diet and exercise
