Kybella Beverly Hills

Kybella is an injectable cosmetic treatment that dissolves unwanted fat under the chin. One of the most common cosmetic concerns people have is fat accumulating under the chin. The “double chin”is often a result of aging or fluctuations in weight, and can be challenging to resolve on your own.

Spa26 offers Kybella treatment to help patients remove their double chin and create a more sculpted facial structure. Read on to learn more about Kybella injections at Spa26 and how they work.

Kybella Injection

What Is Kybella?

The Kybella injectable cosmetic treatment is considered the first-ever non-surgical treatment for a double chin.

Kybella injections contain deoxycholic acid, which can target and injure fat cells contained in the tissue beneath the chin. These injections gradually work to break down unwanted fat cells so that they can be later flushed from the body. This treatment can effectively remove a double chin and create a more youthful appearance around the jawline.

The Benefits of Kybella for the Face and Neck

Kybella injectable treatments come with numerous innovative benefits, such as:

  • The ability to destroy unwanted fat cells beneath the chin
  • Creation of a more structured jaw area
  • Effective results from an outpatient procedure
  • Minimal downtime: requires two weeks for recovery

One of the most significant benefits of Kybella is that it acts as a non-surgical method of fat removal. This procedure allows patients to re-sculpt their facial structure without the need for surgery.

Are You a Good Candidate for Kybella Treatment?

The Kybella treatment is an exceptional solution for patients struggling with unwanted fat underneath their jaw, creating the appearance of a double chin. This procedure is ideal for individuals with good skin quality and looking for a small amount of fat reduction under the chin.

An optimal candidate for Kybella injections will meet the following criteria:

  • Over 18 years of age
  • Mild to moderate excess fat underneath the chin
  • Desires a more structured chin or jaw area
  • Good skin elasticity

The best way to determine whether you are the right candidate for Kybella treatment is to schedule a virtual consultation with one of the skilled cosmetic specialists at Spa26.

Treatment with Kybella

Before seeking a new cosmetic treatment like Kybella, patients should have a clear understanding of what the process entails. Our Spa26 providers want you to be well-informed before receiving Kybella injectables.

Before Your Treatment

  • Before scheduling your first Kybella session, you will need to have a consultation with one of our cosmetic medical specialists. We’ll assess your facial structure and the excess fat underneath your chin during this time.
  • We’ll use this time to answer any questions or concerns you may have and determine whether Kybella is the best procedure to produce your desired results. If not, your provider will inform you about other cosmetic treatments that may yield more promising results.
  • To prepare for your Kybella treatment, you will need to ensure that the treatment area is clean and hairless.
  • If you have facial hair, gently shave the area the night before treatment and clean your skin with a mild cleanser the morning of your procedure.
  • If you tend to be sensitive to pain or needles, you can pre-numb from home by purchasing Zensa from TheSkinSpot.com. Apply it to the area you would like reversed 30 minutes before your treatment time.
  • Other products that can reduce downtime include our compounded Arnica, Bromelain, Vitamin K capsules, Ocumend patches, and Inhance cream available under the bruising category on TheSkinSpot.com.
During Treatment

During Treatment

  • During your Kybella treatment, you will be able to sit comfortably while our cosmetic medical provider administers the injections.
  • A topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin to minimize any potential discomfort from the needle.
  • The needles used to inject Kybella treatment are incredibly thin—about the size of an eyelash.
  • Once the anesthetic has taken effect, your provider will administer multiple injections into the treatment area.
  • This entire process can take anywhere from ten minutes to one hour to complete, depending on the number of injections needed.

After Treatment

  • After your Kybella session is complete, you will be able to return home.
  • You will experience bruising, redness, and swelling for about two weeks. You may want to reduce cardio exercise or running during this time for your comfort.
  • Kybella is an outpatient procedure that requires two weeks of downtime and consists of bruising and significant bullfrog swelling.
  • You will need to return for repeat Kybella sessions over several months for optimal results. Depending on the amount of excess fat beneath your chin, your provider may recommend 2-6 treatment sessions.
After Treatment
  • Once the initial series of treatments is complete, the results will gradually develop over the next several weeks. It can take anywhere between one and two months for the deoxycholic acid to dissolve unwanted fat cells and flush them from the body.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Kybella treatments permanently break down and remove excess fat cells underneath the chin. The fat cells eliminated during treatment will not grow back or reappear. However, any remaining untreated fat cells can grow if you experience weight gain after your procedure.

How Long Do The Results Last

To maintain your Kybella results, you will need to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly. A healthy lifestyle will help keep you at an optimal body weight, ensuring that any remaining fat cells do not continue to develop under the chin.

If you experience sagging skin or drooping in your treatment area, it is likely due to a pre-existing decline in collagen. This effect occurs naturally with age and can be remedied with various outpatient cosmetic treatments that work well in conjunction with Kybella. We also offer other procedures that can work better for you if you have pre-existing skin laxity. We can discuss these with you at your virtual consultation.

Common Side Effects

Most patients report no adverse effects during or after Kybella treatment. Potential side effects may include:

  • Significant bullfrog swelling
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Bruising

When these side effects occur, they usually subside within two weeks after treatment.

Common Side Effects

Alternatives to Kybella for the Face and Neck


When it comes to removing unwanted fat from underneath the chin, there are alternative options that may better suit some patients’ needs. These options range from non-invasive fat removal procedures to surgical options like Evoke, FaceTite, or Morpheus8. 

Suppose you are not a suitable candidate for the Kybella treatment. In that case, we will discuss alternative cosmetic treatments that are more appropriate for your personal aesthetic needs during the consultation.
