If you struggle with excess fat or skin under your chin—also known as “double chin”— you’re not alone. Fat under the chin is common in both men and women and can begin to appear at any age. But now, with Kybella, we have an effective, non-surgical solution to eliminate that unwanted chin fat, giving you a tighter, more sculpted look—and a profile you’re proud of.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment designed to target and eliminate fat underneath the chin, known as submental fat. Our expert team uses Kybella to target fat cells below the chin, precisely addressing troublesome fatty tissue in men and women.
Currently, Kybella is the first and only injectable that has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of excess fat under the chin, or double chin.
How Kybella Works
The body naturally produces a substance called deoxycholic acid, which is a critical compound for absorbing fats. Kybella harnesses the power of deoxycholic acid in a synthetic form, using precise injections to introduce the acid into the target area and dissolve fat cells. In the weeks following treatment, the body will naturally process and dispose of the treated fat cells, reducing the appearance of bulging fat and eliminating the future possibility of storing fat in a given area.
The results from Kybella are long-lasting, and most people see optimal outcomes within just two to four treatments.
Our skilled team works individually with every patient, ensuring optimum results and eliminating any discomfort during the procedure. Deoxycholic acid injections should only ever be administered by a highly trained healthcare provider.
How to Prepare for a Kybella Treatment
This non-surgical treatment requires minimal preparation. Patients will be asked to:
- Schedule your procedure(s) with sufficient time between major events and activities
- Wash your face thoroughly prior to your appointment
- Avoid use of acetaminophen or ibuprofen. These medications can contribute to bruising following treatment
- Discuss your treatment with your physician and provide your full medical history to your Forward Medi Spa provider, including any previous cosmetic procedures you have had on your face or neck area.
If you are pregnant or nursing, please alert your provider prior to scheduling a Kybella treatment.
