Kybella is a non-surgical option to reduce the fat under your chin (submental fat). Due to genetic factors and the natural aging process, excess fat can accumulate under your chin even if you are not overweight. Dr. Kesty and the team at St. Petersburg Skin and Laser can help you with FDA-approved Kybella.

Kybella is a New Solution to the Double Chin

Kybella is the only FDA-approved non-surgical injection treatment used to eliminate fat from underneath the chin. The treatment entails a series of deoxycholic acid injections that target and destroy the fat cells.

How Does Kybella Work?

Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that is produced within your body. It plays an important role in the breakdown of fat. Kybella is a synthetic version of this molecule that can be injected underneath the chin to target and destroy fat cells. After treatment, patients experience a noticeable change in their facial aesthetic and the appearance of their neck and jawline.

What should I expect during treatment with Kybella?

Kybella is administered to the affected areas using a small needle. Numbing cream may be applied prior to treatment, or anesthesia may be injected. Ice packs may be used before and after the procedure to minimize discomfort.

What are the side effects of Kybella treatment?

Patients may experience tenderness and bruising at the injection sites. Most patients experience some degree of swelling for 2-6 weeks after the procedure. This is expected as Kybella causes inflammation in the fat cells that leads to their eventual disappearance.

Can I combine Kybella with other procedures?

Yes-the Board Certified Dermatologists at St. Petersburg Skin and Laser are experts in Kybella and creating a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
