Does your double chin make you feel self-conscious? Do you lead a healthy lifestyle but just can’t seem to get rid of the fat around your jawline? Do you wish for a non-surgical solution to address this frustrating area? Kybella is an injectable designed to address submental fat under the chin (more commonly known as a double chin). Submental fullness can be stubborn and may not respond to traditional diet and exercise.
Compared to other injectables, which may only last months, this innovative FDA-approved injection has been proven to last for years. The number of treatments you need will depend on your desired results and how much excess fat is under the skin.
How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring compound that eats away at submental fat cells while leaving healthy tissue untouched. After the acid has broken down fat cells, they are naturally expelled from your body.
Once these damaged cells have been expelled by your body’s natural waste removal process, they can no longer store or accumulate fat under your chin. This treatment does not prevent the formation of new fat cells, which means you’ll have to continue following a healthy lifestyle to continue enjoying your results.
What Results Can I Expect?
Most patients will see initial results within two weeks. Optimal outcomes can be expected in four to eight weeks, leaving you with a noticeably slimmer chin profile. Final results may take longer to realize than with surgical approaches, but once your desired aesthetic is achieved, results can last for years with no need for maintenance treatments.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Our Derma-Tech specialists will help you determine the number of treatments you’ll need. Most patients need more than one treatment, but more than six injections are not recommended.
The two main factors for consideration are:
- Your individual treatment goals
- The amount of submental fat you want to remove
Kybella does not prevent new fat cells from forming once the damaged ones have been removed from your body. This means it’s important that you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to prolong the results.
Trust Your Qualified Specialists at Derma-Tech
The face has many sensitive nerves and vessels under the skin, which increases the risk of damage or infection. If the injection is not placed at precise depths, the acid can break down other tissue and affect the longevity of your results. These risks are reduced dramatically when injections are administered by Kybella-trained specialists at Derma-Tech Medical Spa.
During your consultation, your specialist will evaluate your chin profile and submental fat and discuss your desired aesthetic goals. An individualized treatment plan will be created based on this information, and the number of sessions required will be determined.
