Say goodbye to turkey neck with Kybella

The FDA has approved Kybella (deoxycholic acid) as a permanent treatment for turkey neck. When injected into fatty areas, Kybella  permanently dissolves the fat cells which create the double chin.

Will Kybella get rid of my double chin?

If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce fullness beneath your chin, KYBELLA® may be right for you. KYBELLA® is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness (double chin) )that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.

How does Kybella work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.

How Much does Kybella Cost?

The cost of Kybella depends on your needs. Dr. Vulich will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart.

Which is better Kybella or CoolSculpt Mini for eliminating double chins?

Dr. Vulich will also be happy to explain the difference between Kybella and Coolsculpt Mini and which treatment would be best for your specific needs.

Do Kybella injections hurt?

Kybella is injected with a small needle under the chin.  A local anesthetic, numbing cream, or ice reduces the discomfort .

You may feel sore for a day or so after your treatment but over-the-counter ibuprofen or acetaminophen lessens the soreness, until it goes away.

How long before I can see the results of Kybella?

It may take four to six weeks to see full results.

Is there downtime to Kybella?

No, the procedure is non-surgical. Any bruising or swelling should be gone within a couple of days.

Are the results of Kybella permanent?

Yes, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and eliminated by the body as waste matter.
