Thanks to Khloé Kardashian, Kybella is one of the best-known treatment options used to say goodbye to the pesky double chin. A double chin has a significant effect on the overall appearance of your face. Both from the front and in profile, your facial contour may look less chiselled than you’d like if you have fullness beneath your chin. KYBELLA® is one of the most popular injectable fat reduction procedures to eliminate the double chin.
Kybella uses an acid that naturally occurs in the body to target stubborn fat under the chin, known as ‘submental fullness’, or more commonly as a double chin. If you’re looking for long lasting, natural looking and effective results Kybella is for you!

KYBELLA is an injectable synthetic acid that mimics a type of acid naturally occurring in your body. It’s called deoxycholic acid, and it breaks down and destroys excess fat cells in the area under your chin. You may have heard this fat referred to as “submental fullness” or a double chin.
In our bodies, deoxycholic acid is contained in bile. The acid destroys the cell membranes of the dietary fat we eat, which makes the fat soluble (a.k.a. it can be dissolved). Cool, but how does it affect the chin fat? We’ll tell you…
When KYBELLA’s synthetic form of deoxycholic acid is injected into fat beneath the skin, it destroys the cell membrane just like the natural version does in the digestive tract. Gradually the destroyed fat cells are processed out of your body as waste.
First is a complimentary consultation. You’ll meet one of our expert aesthetic nurse injectors and they will complete a full assessment to ensure Kybella is the right treatment option for you.
Proceeding with treatment, a series of injections are made in strategic locations under the chin. Our aesthetic injectors will determine how many injections need to be made to treat the entire area. There are typically between 20-30 injections (some may require more). While many do not numb, it is an option should you choose to minimize the feeling of the injections. The injections feel like mild pinches, which many are able to tolerate quite well without numbing. Most patients also experience a slight warming sensation in the moments the drug is dispersed and begins working.
Just about every KYBELLA patient requires between two to six of these injection sessions, spaced six weeks apart. One treatment session is rarely sufficient to get the results desired.
Your chin area may feel sore for a couple hours after your appointment, but any discomfort will dissipate quickly. Swelling is also to be expected. Swelling is most pronounced about 24 hours later, it will begin to subside over the next 5-7 days. The more fat there is, the more swelling there will be as the Kybella digests the fat.
KYBELLA doesn’t work instantaneously. It’s a process. Your body eliminates the destroyed fat cells over time. But after your last injection session is complete, your final results will take shape in the coming weeks.
The great thing about KYBELLA is that the fat cells that are destroyed and eliminated are destroyed and eliminated for good. Your body does not grow new fat cells, but it is possible for the remaining fat cells under your chin to enlarge with weight gain. Having said that, studies show the majority of patients are still happy with their results years later.
Like all injectables and other cosmetic treatments, KYBELLA does come with a slight risk of certain side effects. Possibilities including swelling, bruising, numbness, redness and hardening of the treatment area. Our aesthetic injectors will discuss these risks with you and make sure you are fully informed. Most of these things – if they do occur – resolve themselves in a couple days.

As Kybella treatment under the chin causes fat cells to die, results can often be permanent, as fat can’t grow back. Whilst this may not be the case for every client, thanks to the individual make up of each person, long lasting results can be expected.
In most cases, clients see results between 1-3 months, with repeat treatment usually required after one month.
Maximum effects are usually seen after six months.
