If you’re struggling with a double chin that is making you appear heavier or older than you actually are, Nuderma Health & Med Spa offers Kybella® treatments to remove excess fat from under the chin, revealing a beautifully sculpted neck and jawline area.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to improve the appearance of a double chin. At our medical spa, we use Kybella to reduce the fat under the chin and create a more sculpted and youthful profile. The treatment is quick, with improvement usually seen after 2 to 4 sessions. Kybella is a safe and effective way to restore your confidence and look your best. Our experienced medical staff will work with you to create a personalized plan to achieve the best results. Schedule a consultation with us today to learn more about how Kybella can help you.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected directly into the excess fat under the chin, it destroys fat cells within the area, making it impossible for fat to be stored there anymore.
What happens during the Kybella treatment?
When you arrive for your Kybella appointment, we will take “before” images of you. A temporary dot grid to help guide your physician.
You can expect roughly 10 to 25 injections over the course of several minutes. You will feel a burning sensation which is the actual medication taking action, but you will be given an Ice roller to help with this. The discomfort you may feel is tolerable and short lived.
Afterward, your chin/neck area may feel slightly sore for a few days and you will notice local swelling that lasts a several days while your Kybella does the job. Kybella generally works best after 2 to 4 treatments, spaced six weeks apart.

Kybella recovery and when can I see results?
Within about a week, any swelling will resolve. You may feel some soreness in the area after the Kybella injections, but this should not be severe. Icing the treatment area can help in the first few days.
After about 4-6 weeks, you may see the desired results. For some, it might take multiple procedures to achieve their final goal. Depending on the lines you want to sculpt and the contoured look you are going for, it could take up to six treatments.
Once the treatments are complete, however, you will have a sculpted, defined jawline--no more double chin!
Who is a candidate for Kybella?
Kybella is for generally healthy men and women who want to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat underneath the chin - without surgery.
The ideal candidate for Kybella should know that the treatment may take several months to produce results, as the process of the cells being destroyed and then naturally eliminated takes more time than liposuction.
At Nuderma Health & Med Spa, our team will help determine whether this procedure is right for you. A consultation will be done first to understand your concerns and goals to sculpt your face and jawline, and to be certain that Kybella is the best option to address these
