Submental fullness sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.

If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):

  • 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness or double chin
  • People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM KYBELLA

KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”

You and your practitioner at Always Beautiful Medspa serving Aurora and Denver, CO, will design a treatment plan tailored to help you improve your chin profile. During your treatment sessions, your healthcare provider will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.


HOW the double chin treatment works

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells through osmotic lysis, where water is forced into the fat cell until it explodes. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. This means your results are permanent!
You and your injector will decide how many treatments you need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA®, retreatment is not expected.


Kybella FAQS

Would I be a good candidate for Kybella?
Whether we like to admit it or not — most of us have some degree of a double chin, so most of us could use a little Kybella®. But there is one exception. For some people, their double chin isn’t due to fat accumulating under their chin; it’s due to serious sagging in their skin in this area. When skin is the issue and not fat accumulation, a surgical neck lift or facelift would remove that extra loose skin.

What areas can be treated with Kybella?
At this point, Kybella® is only approved for use on submental fullness, double chins. At Always Beautiful Medspa, our Kybella expert has successfully treated Kybella under the chin, facial jowls, bra fat, and more!
Is a Kybella treatment painful?
Kybella® is injected with a very tiny needle into numerous spots under the chin. This is not painful — most patients say they feel little more than a slight pinprick with each injection. As Kybella is actively seeking the fat cells, patients tend to notice a warming sensation followed by a dull ache which then goes numb to the touch. Most patients experience this entire process before leaving the office and do not experience discomfort once they leave. Taking Tylenol 30 minutes prior to injection of Kybella can lessen these sensations. We do not recommend taking ibuprofen as we do not want to discourage the inflammation response as this is how Kybella works!
How soon will I see results from Kybella?
You will definitely experience some swelling after your Kybella® injections. The more fat you have, the more likely you are to have swelling. Your results will begin to really show up from 4-6 weeks after your treatment. That gives the body time to break down and remove most of the fat cells. Those results will continue to improve, and your profile will slim and tighten. Most patients do not see a significant result after only one treatment, as at least two treatments are needed to see an improvement. Based on your individual needs, meeting with our Kybella expert can help create a treatment plan to reach your goals.
What are the possible side effects with Kybella?
Swelling is pretty standard, although not really a side effect. As Kybella® attacks the fat cells, it creates swelling in the area, especially after the first Kybella® treatment. There can also be some slight bruising. This will start to resolve itself after around three days for most patients.

These are the common side effects after treatment and resolve themselves:

  • Numbness
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Residual pain
  • Areas of hardness in the treatment area

Nerve injury along the jawline did occur during clinical trails which can create an uneven smile and some weakness in the surrounding facial muscles. In clinical studies with 1600 patients, these side effects were not long-term and resolved on their own in about a week. No long term side effects have been presented with Kybella injections.

How long will my results last with Kybella?
The fat that Kybella® breaks down is gone for good. Once the fat is gone, there is a reduced ability to store fat in the area in the future. This is what tightens your profile. Your skin can still sag some with age, but your new slimmer profile is yours for the long haul.
