Kybella


In the past, the only way to get rid of a double chin was with liposuction or a neck lift. And while these procedures are very effective ways to contour your jaw, their invasive nature means they aren’t right for everyone. Fortunately, today there’s a new way. Our Beverly Hills Kybella treatment is a revolutionary treatment that makes it possible to slenderize your jaw and reduce your double chin – all without surgery.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable designed to improve the appearance of your double chin. Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule that breaks down fat. When this medicine is injected into the area underneath your chin, it destroys the unwanted fat cells. Your body then removes the targeted cells through its natural elimination process, allowing your contoured new facial appearance to emerge over time.

Benefits of Kybella

Kybella is a breakthrough treatment that has helped many of our Beverly Hills patients target their double chins. In addition to being extremely effective, the procedure comes with a number of appealing benefits, including:

  • FDA-approved
  • Results in as little as a few weeks
  • Completely non-invasive procedure
  • No incisions, downtime or recovery period

What to expect during your Kybella treatments

Your Kybella procedure will take place in one of our relaxing treatment rooms. To begin, we will administer a topical anesthetic to prevent any discomfort and ensure that your experience is as pleasant as possible.

From there, we will place a grid over the treatment area, which will guide the injection process. Using a tiny needle, we will then inject the medication directly into the excess volume beneath your chin, where it will work to destroy your unwanted fat cells.

A completely non-invasive treatment, you’ll be free to resume your normal daily routine immediately after your Kybella in Beverly Hills. However, you may experience some mild swelling and bruising at the injection site. If you feel any pain, simply take an over-the-counter pain reliever to manage the discomfort. Over time, your body will clear away the fat cells that were targeted by Kybella, and your more contoured jawline will emerge.

Are there any risks associated with Kybella?

Clinical trials have shown that Kybella is a very safe treatment. With that said, in rare cases complications can arise. For example, there’s a very small chance that Kybella injections can damage the tissue or nerves in the treatment area, weakening the facial muscles and causing an asymmetrical appearance. However, this risk is very unlikely when your injections are performed by a trained and experienced professional, like the individuals on our team at The Roxbury Institute.

Is Kybella right for you?

An extremely safe treatment, almost anyone over the age of 18 who suffers from a double chin can benefit from Kybella. With that said, if you’re pregnant or nursing, have an active infection, are taking blood thinners or have experienced difficulty swallowing, you won’t be considered a candidate for this procedure.
