kybella double chin dissolving injections at skin design aesthetics pembroke, ma



Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable to directly eliminate fat cells. Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, which our body naturally produces to break down fat during digestion. By injecting Kybella into specific areas, namely the submental fat (“double chin”), we can strategically and non-surgically eliminate pockets of fat. Most patients require 2-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to obtain optimal results.

Submental Fat ("Double Chin")

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment made of deoxycholic acid, designed to destroy and reduce unwanted submental fat.

How Does Kybella Work?

Deoxycholic acid naturally occurs in our digestive system to help break down and eliminate fat. When injected into fat pockets (ie: the “double chin”), the product will kill fat cells, allowing your body to eliminate them, mostly through the lymphatic system. The result is a reduction in the size of the fat pocket. This type of procedure is called injection lipolysis.

How Much Kybella Will I Need?

This varies patient to patient, however, most patients receive 2-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The maximum number of Kybella treatments is 6.

How Soon Will I See Results From Kybella?

Results are usually noticeable about 6 weeks after treatment, with peak results at 3 months after treatment. Results do become cumulative with ongoing treatments.

How Long Do Results From Kybella Last?

Kybella permanently eliminates the fat cells in the treatment area. However, new fat cells could develop in the future.

What Are The Side Effects Of Kybella?

The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, bruising, numbness  and redness at the treatment site. Swelling can last up to 2 weeks.

Is There Downtime After Receiving Kybella?

Bruising and swelling are common and can last up to 2 weeks. We recommend you receive treatment at least 2 weeks before any major event (ie: wedding, family photos, etc.) if you are concerned about social downtime.

Why Choose Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical option for the removal of excess submental/chin fat with a shorter recovery time compared to other measures (such as liposuction).

Kristina was AMAZING! I was very nervous about getting Botox but she made me feel so comfortable. She’s very knowledgeable and her staff is awesome as well. I went in blind not really knowing what to do and she accomplished the exact results I was looking for. HIGHLY recommend!

Kristina is the BEST at what she does. I have received so many compliments on my lips after filler and recently had her do some preventative dysport. Over my last few visits she has recommended skincare products that have completely transformed my skin. She’s knowledgeable and seriously the sweetest person. I look forward to seeing her and Jacqui at my appointments!
