Kybella is a treatment offered at BeautyFix MedSpa designed to improve facial contours and reduce the appearance of a double chin. This treatment is an FDA-approved injectable that is clinically proven to reduce submental (under the chin) fat. Kybella works to destroy existing fat cells permanently with no need for retreatment after your cycle is complete. Kybella is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat cells beneath the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of these cells, leading to a more contoured and defined jawline.
With a series of sessions using strategically placed injections, you can achieve a well-defined contour of the jawline with no invasive surgery. Kybella is a safe and effective treatment for reducing submental fat, but it is important to note that it is not a weight loss treatment. It is designed for people who have a small to moderate amount of submental fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. The treatment typically requires several sessions, spaced at least four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
The treatment itself is performed by delivering multiple small injections into excess fat under the chin. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness of the chin and jawline with an improved facial profile. Kybella is not a weight loss solution and is only recommended for individuals with a moderate amount of submental fullness.
Kybella is typically administered over a series of sessions, with each treatment session lasting about 20 minutes. The number of sessions required varies depending on the individual and the amount of submental fat that needs to be treated. Most people require between two and four sessions, spaced at least one month apart. Some patients will require more or less, depending on their beauty goals.
You may experience some temporary and common side effects such as minimal bruising and swelling after your Kybella treatment.

Kybella is intended to treat fullness of the chin and jawline by reducing fat and creating an improved facial profile.
A good candidate for this treatment is generally considered someone who is looking for a non-surgical solution to their double chin or fullness in their chin area.
Optimal results can take anywhere between 12-18 weeks, so patience is key! Individuals' results may vary.
Once fat cells are destroyed they do not grow back, so no additional treatments should be needed to upkeep your look once you reach your goal.
Typically, we recommend between 2 and 4 treatments, however, some individuals may require less or more treatments, depending on their beauty goals.
There is no downtime required after Kybella. This is a quick treatment where no anesthesia is required.
