kybella - double chin treatment
reno, nv

Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable technique used to target the fat beneath the chin. The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells in this area. No incisions are required, and the downtime is minimal in most cases.


Excess fat beneath your chin can be a source of self-consciousness. It may be something that you’ve dealt with for most of your life or something that just started to bother you. Either way, it can be treated with non-surgical Kybella® injections for a slimmer and more defined look.

What is Kybella?

Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to reduce excess fat below the chin. It’s a safe and effective way to improve your profile without surgery.

Benefits of Kybella

Kybella® offers benefits such as:

  • Short treatment times
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Minimal downtime
  • Long-lasting results
  • No incisions, surgery, or scars

How Kybella Works

Kybella® is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid exists in the human body and its purpose is to break down dietary fat.

Kybella® uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to destroy fat cells under your chin. Whether the fullness is a result of genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging, Kybella® is an effective way to reduce it.

Ideal Candidate For Kybella

Sixty-seven percent of people surveyed by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery said that they are bothered by fat below their chin. This excess fat, which some people refer to as a “double chin”, is actually a common condition called submental fullness. You don’t have to be overweight to struggle with submental fullness; genetics and aging can work against you.

Kybella® may be right for you if:

  • Are 18 or older
  • You’re bothered by fat under your chin
  • You feel that you look older or heavier than you really are
  • You aren’t interested in surgery
  • You aren’t seeing results through diet and exercise

How Many Kybella Treatments Are Needed For Best Results?

Kybella® works best when administered in a series of treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart. Most patients need at least two sessions to see the full effects of Kybella®. Plan to follow up with our team to determine if you need further treatment.

What to Expect After Kybella

Receiving Kybella® injections shouldn’t get in the way of your normal routine. You will likely be able to drive home or return to work right after your appointment.

Some swelling and bruising is to be expected and can be improved by icing the area and avoiding blood thinners. Avoiding strenuous exercise for several days will also help.

Kybella® works gradually. You should begin to see results after four weeks and those results can continue to improve for up to twelve weeks.

How Long Does Kybella Last?

Kybella® permanently eliminates treated fat cells. You shouldn’t need more appointments after you’ve achieved your desired results.

Keep in mind that remaining fat cells can expand with weight gain. Eat well and exercise to maintain your Kybella® results.
