Shrink Your Double Chin at Capital Laser & Skin Care

Submental fullness, otherwise known as a “double chin,” is a common concern among both men and women, but often goes untreated because, until recently, the only option for improvement was surgery. Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment to contour and improve the appearance of submental fullness without surgery.

Kybella’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and elimination of dietary fat. When injected into the fat layer beneath the chin, Kybella causes the fat cells to die. Once these fat cells are naturally removed by the body, they are gone for good. Most patients experience visible contouring and improvement in the shape of their jawline and chin profile within two to four treatments sessions. *For most patients, recovery time from swelling and bruising commonly lasts several days with the first treatment, but the severity of side effects typically decreases with subsequent Kybella treatments.

During your private consultation, our board-certified dermatologists will evaluate the anatomy of the chin profile and discuss your goals. We typically recommend Kybella for men and women who are already at a healthy and stable weight but are struggling with excess fat beneath their chin.

*Individual results may vary.

During your Kybella treatment, a specially created template is used to mark the injection sites along your chin. We will then carefully administer Kybella into the underlying layer of fat beneath the skin. This process works to target and remove these stubborn fat cells, which are then naturally flushed from your body. Within four weeks, you will begin to notice the results of your Kybella treatment as your body begins flushing away the treated fat cells. *Your chin will appear gradually slimmer, with an improved contour. The total number of recommended treatments for optimal results will depend on individual needs.
