Say goodbye to your double chin with Kybella®. Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin area by physically destroying fat cells.
- Kybella starts at $850
Kybella’s® unique active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the human body and helps with the breakdown of fat. We inject Kybella® directly into the excess fat below the chin, destroying the fat cells to help you achieve a slimmer, more sculpted profile. Most patients start to see results within 2-4 sessions. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable that can non-invasively and non-surgically contour the submental region, removing an unwanted “double chin”. Off-label, it can also be used to minimize fat deposits along the jawline. Kybella® is made with deoxycholic acid, which when injected, metabolizes the fat cells, destroying them so that they never return. While Kybella® can be instrumental in reshaping the profile, it is not a solution for sagging skin or vertical banding in the neck.
Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella® that allows it to effectively slim and sculpt the profile. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the human body as a molecule responsible for fat breakdown and absorption. When injected, Kybella® helps to destroy stubborn pockets of fat, restoring a slim, youthful appearance and a more positive self-image. Once the fat cells are eliminated, they do not return.
Pro-Nox is a safe, popular choice for patients who love the changes they can achieve with Kybella® but who aren’t crazy about needles. The system allows patients to self-administer Nitrous Oxide (N2O) in order to reduce anxiety and stress. N2O is a harmless natural gas with anesthetic properties that is easily flushed out of the system in minutes, making it an excellent alternative to oral pain medications that can impair driving and judgment. If fear of needles is standing in your way of looking your best, consider opting for Pro-Nox during your next appointment.
Kybella® is recommended for patients over 18 years old who are struggling with submental fullness that has not been relieved through dieting and exercise. Kybella® is not a good match for those with moderate to severe skin laxity or platysmal neck bands. It is also not recommended for patients who suffer from dysphagia, infection, blood coagulation problems, or those who have undergone prior surgery in the chin and neck area.
After Kybella® injections, patients may experience minor tenderness, swelling, and redness in the treatment zones. These side effects typically last 5-7 days but will begin decreasing over a period of a few weeks. Many patients need 2-3 treatments to reach their desired results.

Kybella® typically costs around $850 per treatment. Each patient will require a different number of sessions to achieve their unique sculpting goals. During your private consultation, we will provide a detailed quote for services based on our evaluation of your submental region, medical history, and wishes for improvement.
A typical treatment will take 30-45 minutes and is repeated monthly. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results, but your provider will determine how many treatments are needed for you after assessing your chin and neck regions, as every patient is unique.
After undergoing a series of Kybella® sessions, results should be sustainable over time and retreatment is not typically required. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will aid in preserving your results.
It is common for patients to experience mild swelling in the treated area after Kybella® injections. Swelling will peak in the first few days and then gradually subside. As the injections are repeated, swelling will be less and less with each visit. Minor soreness and temporary numbness may also occur, lasting up to several weeks. Redness and bruising typically resolve within one week. Our team can discuss the pros and cons of Kybella® in more detail during your private consultation.
Forma® Skin Tightening is an excellent add-on to any Kybella® session. Using innovative radiofrequency energy, Forma® can help to further tone and tighten the chin and jawline, restoring a more youthful and engaging lower face appearance. Forma® boosts collagen production for deep replenishment of firm, supple, rejuvenated contours. It is safe for all skin types.
