About Kybella®

As explained on the Kybella® website, “The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.”

Kybella® is used to permanently diminish small pockets of fat under the chin: Submental chin fat.

How Long Do Results Last?

Noticeable results are visible in 60-90 days.

When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.”

Schedule Your Kybella® Consultation

The number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Natalie will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.


Recovery Time

Prior to Kybella® treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied for discomfort.

You will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin and ice packs help soothe and decrease swelling. Give yourself a minimum of 2 weeks before any events/vacations. 

Kybella® treatments are well tolerated and successful.
