Kybella Double Chin Treatment

Kybella Double Chin Injections in Los Angeles

Ever sat in front of a mirror and wondered how to get rid of chin fat? You’re definitely not alone — when the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) sent out a survey in 2015, a whopping 67% of people said they feel bothered by fat beneath their chin. That isn’t surprising; extra fat in your neck area usually makes you look heavier and older than you actually are. Who wouldn’t be a little bothered?

Whether they’re caused by weight gain, aging, or genetics, removing double chins can be tough. Sometimes that stubborn pocket of fat just does not want to budge. You can spend years trying to figure out how to lose chin fat and get only minor improvement, no matter how much you’ve been dieting and exercising. Invasive procedures, like liposuction, can be effective, but they aren’t for everyone.

Luckily, there’s finally an easier option to fix double chin fat... and it requires zero anesthesia.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only fat dissolving injection for double chin removal. It’s pretty incredible — who hasn’t wished somebody could invent fat melting injections at some point, right? That’s exactly what Kybella is designed to do.

FDA-approved in 2015, it’s become tremendously popular with MyBotoxLA patients who have spent years struggling with how to get rid of a double chin. Kybella treatment reviews are overwhelmingly positive, because:

  • You get lasting results. The fat won’t come back, because the cells are totally destroyed and removed.
  • It’s non-invasive. The tiny injections are a breeze compared to surgical procedures like liposuction. No incisions required.
  • It’s an outpatient treatment. Your procedure will be done right here in our comfortable Studio City office.
  • It’s quick. You can get in and get out in less than an hour.
  • There’s no downtime. You can get back to your regular day right away.
  • Aftercare is easy. No compression, head wrap, or restrictions.
  • There’s only minimal discomfort. Most patients find that mild pain relievers, like ibuprofen, are more than enough to handle any pain during or after the procedure.
  • It’s very safe. Clinical studies have shown an impressive track record and most reported side effects are minor.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella chin injections contain an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat cells. Your body actually produces this molecule naturally in order to break down and absorb dietary fat. When it’s injected into your submental fat (fat under chin), the synthetic deoxycholic acid in Kybella safely and permanently destroys the cells, so you can lose double chin fat for good.

The number of treatments required depends on the amount of fullness in your neck area, but you’ll start seeing noticeable results within 1-45 treatment sessions.

How to get rid of double chin with Kybella injections

When you visit MyBotoxLA to get Kybella injections, we’ll start with a personal consultation to take a look at the area and talk about your aesthetic goals. After careful assessment, our highly trained provider will come up with a treatment plan just for you. Most patients will need several sessions to get the look they want.

The Kybella treatments, which are generally spaced a month apart, take about 20 minutes each. Our experienced provider makes it a very quick and easy process — you’re in and out in the time it takes for a lunch break. She’ll map out the injection areas with a few temporary dots, then use a fine needle to inject anywhere between 14-20 tiny doses under your chin, depending on your unique treatment plan. Although some people can feel some mild discomfort at the start, it tends to improve gradually as the procedure goes on.

How long does Kybella take to work?

Kybella starts working right away. Even though the fat gets destroyed almost immediately, your body typically takes about 3-4 weeks to clear out all the dead cells. About a month after the procedure, the area will tighten up and the fat reduction will become noticeable.

How long does Kybella swelling last?

One common side effect after the procedure is chin swelling. Your body’s immune system naturally triggers inflammation in the area to “eat” away and dissolve the dead fat, which can result in some puffiness and tenderness. It starts improving within a few days. Most patients say that it’s no longer noticeable after a week or so.

Although Kybella swelling pictures might occasionally look a little intimidating, keep in mind that the “Kybella bullfrog” effect is usually limited to older patients or patients with substantial chin fat. Most importantly, any swelling you experience is only temporary. The amazing results will be permanent — and you’ll be thrilled.

Kybella recovery & aftercare

One of the great things about Kybella is that it’s straightforward. No recovery time. You can go back to your normal routine right away. Basic over-the-counter pain relievers will help with any mild discomfort you might have post-procedure. Like any injection, there’s a chance you’ll have some minor bruising or temporary redness, but it’s easily covered by makeup and usually goes away quickly.

Less common Kybella side effects can include:

  • Nerve injury in the jaw (which can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness)
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Injection site problems including: bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site.

Call your provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.

CoolSculpting vs Kybella

When it comes to under chin fat removal, another popular procedure is CoolSculpting using the CoolMini applicator. The CoolMini works by using cold temperatures to freeze and crystallize fat cells, which will then die and naturally get dissolved by your body. Both non-surgical double chin procedures are FDA-approved, safe, and effective, but there are a few key differences.

Since the CoolMini applicator only comes in one size, it works best when there’s a substantial amount of fat in the treatment area. Kybella is more precise and can be better customized for each individual patient. On the other hand, CoolMini tends to take less sessions for maximum results, and it usually doesn’t cause as much swelling as you might see with Kybella.

Both are great treatment options with fantastic benefits. If you’re trying to decide how to lose double chin fat and aren’t sure whether Kybella vs CoolMini is right for you, ask our provider during your consultation.

Who makes Kybella?

Kybella is manufactured by Allergan, a large multinational pharmaceutical company. Allergan distributes to 96 countries around the world.

Is Kybella covered by insurance?

Since Kybella is considered a cosmetic procedure, it’s not typically covered by insurance; however, Allergan (the manufacturer) does offer a Brilliant Distinctions® Rewards Program that helps you save on your Kybella treatments. For each treatment, you’ll earn points that are redeemable for future treatments. Members can also earn points by shopping online with certain participating retailers. For more information, visit
