Kybella Treatment for Double Chins in Asheville

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin. This improves the profile whether you have a moderate amount of fat under the chin ("submental fullness") or a bit more.

Kybella is an enzyme that digests fat. It is currently FDA approved for treatment for the fat pad that is frequently hereditary in nature ("I got my mom's double chin!).

When Kybella dissolves the fat in this area, at first it flairs up a bit, but then settles down and the areas where the fat was actually contract leaving the profile image much more defined in a pleasing way.

What are the benefits of Kybella?

One of the huge benefits of Kybella is that the effect is permanent. Once the fat is dissolved and contracted into a much improved profile, that fat will not come back.

Another advantage is that it is non-surgical producing results similar to under-chin mini-liposuction. Thus treatment with Kybella can avoid this particular surgical procedure.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella is deoxycholic acid, an enzyme and the only FDA approved medication to treat fat under the chin ("submental fullness"). It is safe and effective.

What is supplemental fullness?

"Submental Fullness" is simply the medical term for a fat pad under the chin.

How Much Does Kybella Cost Per Treatment?

Kybella normally costs $1,200 per procedure. It takes usually two treatments for moderate fat pad and can take up to 6 treatments for severe fat pad / double chin.

Kybella Treatment

Per Treatment, 2 - 4 treatments needed.

How do I know if Kybella is right for me?

A fat pad under the chin ("Submental Fullness") is frequently genetic. Some people are bothered by the appearance as this can cause the profile view of the face to show a rounded lower facial structure.

Dissolving the fat in the fat pad, followed by contraction over time tightens the skin and can eliminate the fat pad.

The results can be remarkable and are worth the wait!

Is Kybella safe?

The FDA has determined that Kybella is safe to use for eliminating the fat pad under the skin.

At Mountain Radiance, as of this writing, none of our clients have had any long term adverse results, and in fact, they love the treatments. Please see our own Heather's before and after photos!

Heather had a slight numbness around the jaw line for several weeks following one of the treatments but this did resolve.

How is Kybella administered?

Kybella is injected with a very small needle - about the size of an eyelash - into the fat pad under the chin.

Though there is mild discomfort during the procedure, all of our clients have tolerated this well and indicated it was acceptable. Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment if the client desires.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?


Heather required 2 treatments. You can see the size of the fat pad she started with.


Is there downtime with Kybella?

There is very little "down time" with Kybella treatment. The evening after the injection the area will swell, be warm and possibly have some numbness.

You MAY return to work immediately after the procedure, but you will probably be more comfortable taking it easy the rest of the day. Usually by morning the immediate side effects have resolved somewhat and should mostly resolve over 2 - 3 days, returning the appearance to pre-treatment look

Kybella Side Effects

Side effects with Kybella can vary. Most people feel mild burning right after the injection that lasts about an hour.

After the injection the area will swell up a bit as the enzyme dissolving the fat will cause an inflammatory reaction (slightly red and warm perhaps to the touch, and a bit swollen). This can be disconcerting because obviously the client wants the fat pad gone not increased in size.

Most people relax the rest of the day, this swelling and warmth will partially resolve within 1 day and significantly resolve about back to pre-treatment in about 3 days - but during this time, returning to work etc is normal.

Some people experience mild numbness in the injected area for a few weeks. Longer or more serious numbness is a very low possibility, but please see the Safety Information link below.
