Page ContentKybella® for “Double Chin” What Is Kybella?Kybella is made from deoyxcholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body, making it safe for use. It’s the only injectable treatment currently FDA-approved for this cosmetic procedure and is precisely injected into the fat layer under the chin where it will begin the process of breaking down extra fat. How Long Is the Treatment Process?The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. Most clients require two to four total treatments scheduled six weeks apart. Does It Hurt?Patients are prepared for the procedure with a topical anesthetic cream and ice packs. The needles used are extremely fine, thus most patients experience minimal pain or discomfort. How Long Do Results Last?Results are permanent. The fat cells targeted are completely removed from the body with this procedure. Although future significant weight gain may cause development of additional submental fat, the original fat cells treated will not return.
