No one desires the appearance of a “double chin,” yet it’s a common concern influenced by factors such as weight changes, posture habits, and genetics. People who fall within a healthy weight range can also accumulate excess fat around the chin and jaw. Kybella® is an injectable medication that eliminates unwanted fat around the chin without surgery. Feinstein Dermatology in Delray Beach is delighted to offer Kybella as your go-to solution for reducing fat and contouring the area under the chin.

Why Choose Kybella?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment to reduce fat under the chin. This makes it an effective solution for an area challenging to impact through diet and exercise alone. Kybella’s effects are long-lasting, and the treatment involves minimal downtime.

How Does Kybella Work?

During your Kybella treatment at our practice, a skilled injector will administer the treatment directly under your chin. Kybella’s active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, dissolves unwanted fat tissue in the targeted area only, leaving surrounding tissues unaffected. Over a few weeks, your body naturally breaks down and discards the unwanted fat cells as waste.

You can generally expect your treatment session to take between 15 and 30 minutes. Optimal results may require multiple sessions spaced a month apart, and your doctor will provide detailed information on your recommended treatment plan.


Beautiful Cosmetic Transformations


Recovery

After a Kybella injection, it’s normal to experience some swelling, indicating the active ingredient is at work. This swelling can last one to three weeks, and ice packs or over-the-counter pain relievers can help reduce these mild side effects.

Kybella FAQs

Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics, or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.

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.

Your doctor will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.

If you’re bothered by fullness under your chin and wish to avoid surgery, ask your doctor about KYBELLA®.
