What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is the first and only injectable product that can be used to treat a double chin, also known as submental fullness. The accumulation of fat beneath the chin can be difficult to get rid of, even with strict diet and exercise. Thanks to Kybella®, patients don’t have to rely on surgery to achieve a slimmer jawline. The Kybella® formula is made with deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring ingredient that breaks down fat. When injected into the chin and neck area, the Kybella® formula destroys fat cells to eliminate the appearance of a double chin.

What are the Benefits of Kybella®?

Kybella® is a popular treatment as one of the only non-surgical treatment options for addressing a double chin. Additional Kybella® benefits include:

  • Permanent results
  • Easy, non-surgical treatment
  • Safe and FDA-approved
  • Slimmer, more youthful appearance

How Much Does Kybella® Cost?

The cost of Kybella® treatments at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. As a cosmetic treatment, Kybella® is typically not covered by health insurance. This means you will be responsible for the full cost of your treatment. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and provide the exact costs associated with your treatment.

What is the Kybella® Treatment Like?

The Kybella® treatment typically begins with the application of a topical anesthetic, which minimizes any discomfort from the injection process. Then, the Kybella® formula will be injected beneath the chin. The injection process takes only a few minutes, with a full visit for Kybella® often taking less than 30 minutes.

Is There Any Downtime After Kybella®?

There is very little downtime after Kybella®, but patients can expect some swelling, bruising and soreness for several days following their injections. While these side effects should not interfere with your usual activities, some patients may choose to take time off of social activities to allow the body to heal.  At times, the swelling and bruising may be significant.

What Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?

Kybella® results become gradually noticeable in the weeks and months following treatment. Most patients will begin noticing results within the first 4-6 weeks. However, we typically recommend a series of 3-6 Kybella® treatments for the best results. These treatments are performed several weeks apart, so it can take a few months to complete a full Kybella® treatment and achieve your final results.
