At That Face, our patients are thrilled with the results of Kybella – a non-surgical injectable treatment to remove double chin fat without surgery or liposuction. Kybella is a prescription injectable FDA-approved to treat “submental fat” (double chin). The Kybella is injected in a grid pattern into the fatty area, which takes about fifteen minutes. Over the weeks ahead, you will see the fat melt away, revealing a more elegant, refined facial profile.
Kybella – melt away your double chin
The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of a natural substance, deoxycholic acid, a molecule found in bile. In your body system, this acid works to break down and assist the body to absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chi, it has the remarkable capacity to destroy fat cells. After the fat cells are affected by the Kybella, they are shed by your lymphatic system over time. The slimming effect appears gradually, taking about four to six weeks to appear. A series of Kybella treatments may be ideal, based on the quantity of fat you want to remove. The sessions are spaced every eight weeks.

How does Kybella work?
Your body may be programmed to store fat in various areas, including beneath the chin. Double chin fat can be difficult to lose, even with a strict diet and exercise – your body just does not want to let it go. Kybella injections allow you to outsmart nature and melt the fat away with a series of injections. The active ingredient in this injectable will destroys fat cells beneath your chin, and once they are destroyed, they are gone forever.
What is the recovery time?
Your Kybella injections may cause some swelling, bruising, and minor soreness, which typically fades within a few days. If you are uncomfortable, over-the-counter pain medication is all that is needed. The swelling usually lasts in the range of three days, but minor swelling can linger a few weeks. Within four to six weeks, you will see the impact of the injections, as the fatty area beneath your chin slims. For the optimal result, you may need a series of injections to achieve your ultimate goal.
