What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment designed to reduce fat and double chins. It’s a noninvasive procedure and a great alternative to surgery or liposuction. The Kybella formula is a deoxycholic acid that targets and destroys the walls of fat cells. It is the only FDA-approved formula that permanently destroys fat cells and gives you long-term results. 

Kybella has been tested and proven to give excellent results when it comes to reducing fat under the chin, which is also called submental fat. Reducing double chin can be a great way to boost your confidence and feel better about the way you look. It’s not designed to help with other areas of your body.

How long does Kybella last?

Most clients will begin seeing results after a few weeks, and additional injections can be done two or three months after your initial session. Maximum results are noticed after six months and can last for years. 


Depending on your goals, you can book multiple sessions for Kybella injections. You may just want one session, but you can get up to six. Before your appointment, you’ll discuss what’s best and how to achieve your desired results.
