For most people, diet and exercise can only go so far in the battle against stubborn fat. That’s because genetics, age, and hormones all influence where and how your body stores excess fat. If you eat right and stay active but you still find yourself dealing with submental fullness — commonly known as a double chin — the experienced providers at Skin Med Spa in Downers Grove, Illinois, can help. They offer Kybella® neck lift injections, an advanced treatment designed to erase double chins for good. To learn more, call the Skin Med Spa office or request your appointment online today.

Kybella ® Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to reduce submental fullness, or the area of excess fat also known as a double chin. Kybella is an effective lipolysis agent because it contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid; in your body, naturally occurring deoxycholic acid plays a major role in helping your digestive system break down dietary fats for absorption.

When your provider at Skin Med Spa injects Kybella into the fat cells beneath your chin, it disrupts their integrity to the point where they can no longer function properly, effectively undermining their ability to accumulate fat. As a result, your chin loses some of its fullness, and you achieve an improved profile. 

Kybella can also be used to help melt unwanted fat from your arms, knees, and bra strap area.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

If having submental fullness makes you feel self-conscious, heavier, or older than your age — and if getting regular exercise and eating nutritious meals don’t seem to have an impact on the extra bit of fat beneath your chin — then Kybella may be just the solution for you.

In addition to being the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fullness, Kybella is a safe, effective, and noninvasive option for people who want to get rid of resistant chin fat and improve their facial profile without surgery.

Kybella isn’t an ideal option for everyone, however. You should postpone or avoid the treatment if you:

  • Have an infection in the treatment area
  • Have any medical conditions affecting your neck area
  • Had cosmetic treatments or surgery on your face, neck, or chin
  • Are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or nursing

What is Kybella treatment like?

Kybella is designed to work over multiple treatments spaced out at least four weeks apart. Some people may see significant results after just two sessions, while others need as many as six sessions; the average person needs just 2-4 sessions to achieve optimal results.  Treatment starts with a customized plan that addresses your personal needs.

During each procedure, multiple small injections are administered under your chin, in a process that takes about 15-20 minutes. The exact number of injections you’ll need depends on your degree of submental fullness as well as your desired chin profile.

Common side effects, which include swelling, redness, bruising, pain, and numbness, are usually mild and short-lived.

What kind of results can I expect?

Once you’ve completed a full Kybella treatment cycle, you can expect long-lasting results that don’t require future upkeep. That’s because, unlike most other injectable cosmetic treatments, the results of Kybella are permanent.
