Kybella – The Injectable Double-Chin Treatment
A double-chin is one of the most frustrating conditions, unflattering, often making a person appear heavier or older. Kybella is an industry-leading injectable treatment that can dissolve fat under the chin for a more defined jawline and more attractive profile. This non-surgical procedure is changing the way our patients look at the dreaded double-chin and has provided an alternative for removing stubborn fat – no surgery required!
Why are people choosing Kybella?
Prior to Kybella, diet and exercise were considered the only way to reduce a double chin, but this fat can linger, no matter how hard you try. Surgical solutions included liposuction or surgical reduction procedures to remove excess fat, with bruising or scars left behind. Kybella, on the other hand, is injected into the area and doesn’t leave scars or other unsightly side effects. The deoxycholic acid begins working instantly to dissolve your double-chin without the need for surgery.
How fast does Kybella work?
The active ingredients in Kybella go to work destroying fat cells at once. It works best in the area immediately surrounding the injection site, so multiple injections are needed beneath your chin to see the beautiful slimming effect appear. You should see a reduction in your double chin over the four to six weeks following your treatment.
How long will my results last?
Your newly sculpted facial profile is long-lasting. We generally recommend a few tips for maintaining your results, including:
- Complete all necessary treatments recommended by our knowledgeable staff
- Eat right and exercise regularly to avoid excessive weight gain
- Practice good skincare to maintain skin elasticity and prevent sagging skin
Kybella is one of the most effective treatments for submental fat because the serum works to destroy the fat cells. However, adopting a healthy lifestyle can preserve your slimmer, more defined chin.

Frequently Asked Questions About Kybella
How many treatment sessions will I need?
Most people will need approximately two to three treatments to see optimal results. The treatments only take about 30 minutes and should be placed about six to eight weeks apart. However, each person is unique, and the number of treatments varies, based upon individual need.
Is there downtime after Kybella?
Side effects are typically mild after Kybella, and any discomfort can be resolved with over the counter pain medication. You may want to take one to two days off of work, or schedule the procedure right before the weekend so you can rest.
Can Kybella be used on other areas of the body?
Kybella is generally only used under the chin or a select few other areas with small amounts of fat. Those are considered “off-label” uses and may not be ideal for every client. The treatment is not appropriate for larger fatty areas, but we offer the full range of fat reduction treatments at Flawless Skin by Abby and are happy to work with you to resolve these conditions.
