What is KYBELLA?

Extra fat in the upper throat area can create the appearance of a double chin, which is usually an undesirable feature for both women and men. Excess pockets of fat below the chin (also known as the submental area) happen for a variety of reasons (including genetics, weight fluctuations, and aging) and lead to a softer chin and jawline for a less defined profile.

At Clear Lake Dermatology in Webster and League City, TX, our board-certified dermatologists provide a revolutionary treatment that eliminates neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which breaks down and absorbs fat cells under the chin. After injecting it beneath the chin, you may see a visible decrease in the volume of fat. When the fat is removed, those fat cells will not regenerate, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer profile and stronger jawline for years to come.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for KYBELLA injectable treatments have unwanted fat in their upper neck (submental area). This creates a double chin or unwanted fullness. KYBELLA injections eliminate resistant areas of fat that have been difficult to lose with normal weight-loss techniques because of genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you maintain a healthy, stable weight but diet and exercise have not worked to remove the fat in your neck, then KYBELLA may help you achieve your cosmetic goals. While KYBELLA may reduce small to moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.

Our Kybella Injection Technique

We perform KYBELLA injections during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. If needed, one of our dermatologists can apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. We'll cleanse your skin before administering KYBELLA. The procedure usually takes about 15 minutes and includes a few small injections that target the submental area. Some patients may need a single treatment to achieve their desired results, while others may require several injections spaced out about three weeks apart at Clear Lake Dermatology.

What to Expect

KYBELLA treatments do not require general anesthesia, so you can leave the office when you feel comfortable enough to resume your normal routine. At first, you may have temporary bruising, numbness, or swelling below your chin; however, this should subside in 2 – 3 days. Call Clear Lake Dermatology immediately if you notice any unusual symptoms, like facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your facial expressions appear uneven. While the eliminated fat cells do not return, the remaining cells can grow bigger, so you must maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatments to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results will leave your neck looking tighter, sleeker, and more defined.
