Kybella®

A “double chin,” medically known as submental fullness, can be caused by aging, weight gain, and genetics, among other factors. In many cases, submental fat will remain regardless of diet changes and increased exercise. Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin. Kybella® can also be used to treat other areas of fat, including near the underarms, above the knees, and at the inner thighs. 

LEARN MORE ABOUT Kybella®

Kybella® relies on the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, one of the body’s naturally occurring molecules that facilitates the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected under the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a visible reduction in fullness. After cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store fat—so once you’ve achieved your aesthetic goals, no further treatment should be needed.  

In clinical studies, 79% of patients treated with Kybella® reported improved satisfaction with the appearance of their face and chin area 12 weeks after their last treatment.

If you’re looking for a safe, non-surgical way to reduce extra fullness beneath your chin that will not subside with exercise and healthy diet, Kybella® at Tondue Medical Spa may be right for you. We recommend scheduling an initial consultation with our highly trained team who will tailor a treatment plan to your specific goals and objectives. CoolSculpting® is another option that may be considered for treating this area.

At your Kybella® treatment appointment, we will start by numbing the area with a topical cream and ice. After marking where fat needs to be reduced or eliminated, our highly-trained cosmetic nurse injectors will perform the injections. Some patients report feeling a warming sensation as the product begins work. Temporary swelling and tenderness may occur after the treatment.

Patients receiving Kybella® treatments should avoid taking substances that have blood-thinning effects, such as aspirin, vitamin E supplements, St. John’s wort, ginseng, and Ginkgo Biloba for at least 1 week before their treatments. Please consult with your personal physician before stopping any medications before treatment.

Kybella® is typically used in a series of two treatments. Results may be noticeable as early as 4 to 6 weeks after your first treatment and will last for years, which means touch-ups should not be needed.
