Adults in Brentwood get Kybella® injections to get rid of fat cells under their chins and improve their appearance and profile. Kybella® is a fat-dissolving injectable that provides non-surgical contouring. Kybella® is the only injectable treatment for a double chin that has been approved by the FDA.

Are Kybella® Injections Suitable for Me?

The ideal candidates for Kybella® treatment are adults over the age of 18 who are healthy and have no sensitivities to deoxycholic acid. Those who want to remove under-chin fat without undergoing liposuction are suitable candidates.

If you are going to have facial surgery or have undergone one recently, you may not be eligible for Kybella® treatment. You are not suitable for the treatment if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you have an infection or medical condition at or near the intended injection site.

How Does Kybella® Work?

Kybella® is composed of synthetic deoxycholic acid. In your digestive system, your body naturally creates this bile acid, which aids in the breakdown of lipids.

Kybella® is a fat-cell destroyer that is injected under the chin. The fat removed from the treatment region is processed by your body’s natural metabolism. You’ll notice a dramatic reduction in fullness under your chin once the fat cells are gone.

What to Expect During Kybella® Treatment

Your skin expert will check the area under and around your chin to see if Kybella® is suitable for you before starting treatment. Then, depending on the amount of fat under your chin and your aesthetic goals, they will customize your procedure.

You will receive many tiny injections under your chin during each Kybella® treatment, which will take about 15 to 20 minutes. The number of injections required will be determined by the amount of fat under your chin.

After Your Kybella® Treatment

Although the treated area swells and remains mildly uncomfortable for a week or two following Kybella® treatment, most patients are able to resume their normal routine the next day without a long recovery period. If you experience facial muscle weakness, an uneven smile, difficulty swallowing, or injection site problems such as open sores, please contact us.

Kybella® Treatment Results

You will observe gradual benefits following Kybella® treatment. This is due to the fact that the breakdown of undesirable fat is a gradual process. It usually takes about 12 weeks for most patients to achieve the desired outcome.

Most patients may need between two and three Kybella® sessions, spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. Your skincare expert will advise you on the proper number of treatment sessions to meet all of your aesthetic objectives.

The effects of Kybella® are long-lasting. This is due to deoxycholic acid’s ability to break down the fat cells that contribute to a double chin. Fat cells do not regenerate after they have been destroyed, and our bodies are not capable of creating new fat cells after we reach the age of puberty.

How Much Does Kybella® Cost?

Because each Kybella® treatment plan is different, prices vary for each patient. The overall cost is determined by the number of treatment sessions required and the fees charged by your healthcare provider. Medical insurance does not cover Kybella®, because it is considered a cosmetic treatment.

Kim is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. You can tell she knows what she’s doing. I came in for a chemical peel and she was very professional and clean. Coming back to get Botox! Excited for the results of my peel!
Kim does a wonderful job and really knows how to take care of her patients. I would highly recommend her!!!

It’s been almost 4 months and my skin has never looked so good. It truly brings me joy to show friends and family my before and after pictures. They are speechless. Thank you Kim and thank you ZO Skin. I am a customer for life!

For the first time in the last 7 years I’ve been getting Botox has someone taken the time to explain to me why drooping happens and how to prevent it. She took her time and made sure everything was thoroughly explained. She clearly knows her stuff!
