Kybella is one of the new generations of cosmetic treatments for facial rejuvenation. Without surgery! The product is a prescription formula injectable that works to reduce the volume of “submental fullness” (double chin). Both men and women often develop excess fat under the chin, due to weight gain, genetics, or aging.
A survey conducted by the ASDS (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery) reveals that 67 percent of those surveyed were bothered by the appearance of fat beneath the chin. If you are tired of looking older, heavier, or seeing that double chin when you look in the mirror, find out more about Kybella – the non-surgical solution for a double chin.
How Does It Work?
This advanced product has an active ingredient called “synthetic deoxycholic acid.” This ingredient naturally occurs in the body, and functions to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells present in the area, over a series of treatments. Once those fat cells are treated, they are unlikely to return – and fat can no longer be stored in that body area. For a more youthful chin profile, Kybella can produce dramatic results without the need for invasive facial surgery.
When the fullness under the chin is reduced, the natural bone structure is revealed, creating a fresher, younger profile. Each person has a unique situation and varying levels of unwanted fat deposits under the chin. Your treatment plan with Kybella will be customized by Dr. Birely to address your individual case. The process involves several tiny injections under the chin, with multiple treatments required. You can receive up to six treatments, each at least one month apart. Visible changes are usually evident after two to four Kybella treatments.
Long Lasting, Non-Surgical Treatment for a Double Chin
As Kybella destroys the fat cells under the chin, once the cells are absorbed and destroyed by the body’s natural processes, there is no need for further treatment – the fat cells are gone, and fat can no longer be deposited under the chin. Many people are very unhappy with the appearance of a double chin. The fat in this area can be difficult (if not impossible) to get rid of through a healthy diet and exercise.

Reduce Fat Around the Jaw with Kybella
As we age, the body changes how and where it stores fat. Unfortunately, one of the most common areas is under the chin. The pad of fat in this area, as it swells, makes the face and neck look older. Kybella requires only a few quick injections to start the process of bringing back a more youthful, fresh appearance to your face and neck.
Recovery Time for Kybella Treatments
Kybella treatments do not require a long period of recovery, and most people can return to work immediately. You may experience some minor discomfort, bruising, and swelling, but this is easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol. You will be given full post-treatment instructions and should follow them carefully.
Most people will require four to six treatments to achieve the best results. Remarkable changes are usually visible within about twelve weeks, as it takes time for the body to remove the cells and store fat under the chin.
