A double chin can make you look older and heavier than you are. Often caused more by genetics or aging than the lifestyle you lead, it can be nearly impossible to target neck fat with diet or exercise. Kybella is an injectable treatment that eliminates excess fat in the neck and under the chin, without the downtime of a surgical procedure.

Look As Wonderful As You Feel!
Imagine loving your profile again, never feeling like you needed to adjust the angles in your photos to hide your neck, or simply feeling confident wearing that favorite necklace or collared shirt. If you find yourself styling your hair or beard to conceal a full neck, or loving scarf weather a bit too much, now is the time to consider how a few simple injections could change the way you feel about your neck.
Kybella is FDA-approved to treat submental fullness, also known as double chin, with a series of injections that dissolve excess fat.
How Kybella Works
Kybella is a synthesized version of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that is naturally occurring in the body and plays a role in the absorption of dietary fats. Kybella is injected into the treatment area under the chin and works to destroy fat cells. Once damaged, those fat cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, and are cleared away by your body’s natural processes1,2.
Everyone will need at least 2 treatments, spaced a month apart. After these initial 2 treatments, we will space out any additional treatments at longer intervals, so that their full effect can be evaluated. Treatment number varies by patient and will be discussed during your complimentary consultation. The actual procedure will last about 15-20 minutes in the office. Once you achieved the level of correction desired, additional future treatments are not anticipated1,2.

BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
Combining Kybella With Other Procedures for Maximum Results
Kybella works to eliminate excess fat in the neck and under the chin. For many patients, it makes sense to also address sun damage and skin tightening during the same treatments, so that a more comprehensive improvement can be achieved in a single appointment. Your treatment plan based on your individual physiology, aging patterns, and lifestyle will be created during your complimentary consultation with one of our expert physicians.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will Kybella work for me?
Kybella works well for most people, but an ideal candidate:
- Has good skin tone
- Has moderate to mild skin laxity in their neck
- has excess fat in their neck and below the chin
What should I expect after Kybella treatments?
Some patients will experience mild swelling and potential bruising in the injection site for 2-3 days after injection1,2. To minimize swelling, you will be instructed to wear a compression chin strap for the first 24 hours following treatment. We are happy to accommodate your schedule with evening and weekend hours.
You should expect to see full results from each session at about a month after injection, at which time you should come in for your next session until you have reached the desired level of correction. It is not expected that you will need re-treatment in the future.
How long does the Kybella procedure take?
The injections take 15-20 minutes for the physician to perform. You will numb prior to injection, so you should plan to be in the office for about an hour total with each treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Each patient’s treatment plan will be customized to their aesthetic goals during their consultation. The number of treatments will vary between 2 and 6, with most patients needing between 3 and 5 treatments to see maximum results. Once you’ve reached your full results, we do not anticipate you needing more treatments, as long as you maintain the results with a healthy diet and exercise.
How much does Kybella cost?
Kybella is priced by the number of vials used, with smaller areas requiring fewer vials than larger areas. Each treated area will need at least 2 injection sessions, and up to 4 or more, depending upon how much fat there is to treat. Typically, a double chin or jowls is going to cost around $900 – 1800 per treatment, making the final cost $1800 – 3600+.
Is treatment painful?
Your doctor will numb the area with lidocaine, the same way your dentist numbs you before you have a cavity filled. After the numbing wears off there can be some tenderness that can be relieved by ibuprofen.
When will I see results from Kybella?
Changes are expected to become more evident after the second treatment takes full effect. Usually, results improve through 3 months after the second treatment session.
Can Kybella be used for fat in other areas?
Kybella is FDA-approved for use in the submental area below the chin and through the neck and has been shown to be very safe and effective in treating these areas. However, there have not been sufficient clinical studies to show safety and efficacy in other parts of the body.
Be Transformed – Inside and Out!
Our goal at Reflections is to help each patient look and feel like their very best self. With Kybella, you will experience a renewed sense of self-confidence and be transformed, inside and out.
