Diminish Double Chin Fat

Kybella is a safe and gentle way to eliminate chin fat. The professionals in our Stellis Health – Medical Skin Care Center will work with you to tailor a treatment plan to help diminish fat cells under your chin (“double chin”) using Kybella or CoolSculpting Elite.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults 18 and over that permanently destroys fat cells under your chin. Administered as a series of injections under the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells and produces gradual results. Everyone’s chin profile is different, so we will tailor treatment to you. The number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals.

Three benefits of Kybella:

Diminish double chin
Permanent results
Smooth chin-neck

Typical Appointment Length:

15 to 20 minutes

    four treatment sessions done 28 to 30 days apart.
  • Some people require up to six treatments to achieve result

How long do results last?

Kybella gives you permanent results. Once you get rid of all the fat cells in your double chin with Kybella injections, they disappear forever.

How many sessions will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your Medical Skin Care specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each treatment session is given at least one month apart, and you should not receive more than six treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received six treatments.
