If you’ve always wanted a more pronounced jawline or dislike your double chin, Kybella can help. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment to permanently destroy fat cells under the chin and restore youthfulness in both men and women. Kybella works by using a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat called deoxycholic acid. 

Kybella is administered through a series of injections, and the whole procedure takes only about 15-20 minutes to administer. For best results, at least two treatments are recommended. Patients love Kybella because it requires no downtime following treatment, although some bruising, swelling, and soreness are normal, as with any injection. This is because the fat cells are damaged and removed through the natural lymphatic system in the body. 

This treatment is best for moderate to severe submental fullness or double chin. This procedure has been growing in popularity since 2015, when the FDA approved it, and has become a viable option for those looking to tighten their jaw lines without surgery. While the fat removal is permanent, many patients schedule maintenance sessions after six months or a year to maintain their looks.

Special Instructions Before Your Injections

In order to reduce side effects and achieve the best possible results from your injections, please read and follow these instructions.

  • Do not consume alcohol for 24 hours prior since this may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising
  • Avoid taking Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, and blood thinners if possible for two weeks prior to injections. Keep in mind that natural supplements such as Fish Oil, St. John’s Wort, Vitamin E, and Ginko Biloba have blood thinning effects and contribute to bruising
  • Schedule your appointment at least two weeks before an important event, as bruising is always a possibility
  • Postpone your injections if you have an active cold sore on your face
  • Do not lie down for four hours after receiving Botox or Dysport and do not exercise for six hours afterwards. This will allow the product to stay in the intended muscles and not drift elsewhere
  • NONE of the injectables should be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding
