“Double Chin” and Neck Treatment
To improve your profile through fat reduction under the chin and jawline
Kybella® injection is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical prescription treatment used in adults to treat severe submental fat, or “double chin.” It improves your appearance and profile by defining and sharpening your jawline and neck area.
WHAT DOES KYBELLA DO?
Synthetic deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella®. It is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella® injections are placed under the chin destroying the fat cells in that area. Once you’ve achieved your desired look, further treatment is unnecessary, as the fat cells do not return. In most cases, several treatments are necessary to achieve the desired result.

Is Kybella Right for Me?
Kybella® is the best solution for tackling the fat that rests under your chin, making you appear heavier than you are. A “double chin” is often hereditary or due to natural aging or weight gain. Despite natural efforts, it can be impossible to minimize. If you are interested in improving your appearance and profile, Kybella® is a good option.
FAQs About Kybella
How much does it cost?
Your investment in Kybella® is typically between $800-$2400 per treatment.
How many sessions are required?
Epi Center MedSpa customizes your Kybella® treatment to include as many treatments as needed based on your desired chin profile. Spaced a month or more apart, patients often choose two to four sessions to attain their desired profile.
How long does the process take?
This minimally invasive treatment typically takes 15 to 20 minutes.
How quickly do I see the results?
Most patients begin to experience visible contouring of their profile in about a month with continued improvement over 2-3 months. Multiple treatments are often required for optimal results.
How long do the results last?
Results are long-lasting once you’ve achieved your desired results because the fat cells are destroyed and don’t return. However, if you experience significant weight gain in the future, your neck area may again increase in size. Kybella is FDA approved for permanent fat reduction.
What is the downtime?
Depending on how much Kybella® is used during treatment, you may experience anywhere from 1-3 weeks of swelling. Most noticeable swelling resolves after 3 to 7 days. Bruising may last up to 2 weeks.
Is it safe?
Yes. The FDA approved Kybella® in 2015.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effects of Kybella® are temporary and include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of firm tissue in the treatment area. Your provider will discuss with you all possible side effects prior to any treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
There may be mild discomfort during the treatment. However, we apply a numbing cream and other forms of pain management to minimize any physical concerns.
Who performs the treatment?
Treatments are performed by our registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and PAs.
How quickly can I get an appointment?
Often we can provide treatment within a few days to a week.
What other treatments are recommended in support of Kybella®?
We often recommend CoolSculpting® before Kybella®. We utilize the CoolSculpting® procedure for debulking the area and then use Kybella® to contour and sculpt. If you suffer from fat and loose skin under your chin and jawline, PDO Threads, Ultherapy and Morpheus are excellent options to lift and tighten the skin.
