Excess chin fat is one of the most common and potentially frustrating aesthetic imperfections that people deal with. While patients previously had to undergo painful and invasive procedures to correct this, KYBELLA® now offers them a single, easy, injectable way to sculpt out their idea chin.

What is It?
KYBELLA® is the only treatment of its kind. This revolutionary new injectable can eliminate submental fat, otherwise known as a double chin, through a series of quick treatments. KYBELLA® can give patients the defined profiles they want without having to undergo a surgical or laser procedure.
How Does it Work?
KYBELLA® is made of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that aids in both the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat within the body. When this compound is injected into the chin during a KYBELLA® treatment, it begins to destroy and rupture the excess fat cells there. Each additional treatment session destroys more and more of these fat cells. Over time, they are naturally removed from the body, revealing a slimmer, healthier-looking chin.
What Should I Expect from Treatment?
Each KYBELLA® treatment typically takes between 15-20 minutes to complete. While most patients need somewhere between two and four injection sessions to correct their submental fullness, some individuals may need as many as six. The amount of injections required depends on the amount of fat in the area prior to seeking a KYBELLA® treatment.
Following treatment, most patients experience a brief period of social downtime. Bruising, swelling, numbness, redness, itching, and tingling are common, but usually subside within a few weeks.
Am I a Candidate for KYBELLA®?
Nearly anyone interested in improving the appearance of excess chin fat is a potential candidate for KYBELLA® treatments. Interested patients must be over the age of 18, in good health, and at or near their ideal body weight to undergo treatment. It’s also important for people to keep in mind that KYBELLA® is a treatment for excess fat, not excess skin. Loose skin on the chin or neck area must be addressed with a different cosmetic treatment.
If you’re interested in undergoing KYBELLA® injections but still aren’t sure if you’re a candidate, we can help! Contact Skin Spa Medical today to schedule a consultation appointment. We look forward to hearing from you!
