Kybella Double Chin Treatment
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is a nonsurgical injection treatment used to dissolve excess fat under the chin. It uses deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells under the chin with no incisions.
It’s the first and only non-surgical FDA approved procedure for contouring and improving the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fullness, commonly known as a double chin.
Kybella injections help reveal a smoother jawline without the necessary recovery time of more expensive and invasive surgical treatments, like liposuction.

How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella targets the underlying causes of submental fat. It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb fats. When injected in the fat under your chin, Kybella double chin injections destroy the fats cells while leaving all other cells unaffected. After treatment, your body clears the excess fat through its natural metabolic processes. Approved by the FDA in 2015, Kybella shots are an alternative to liposuction or surgery to treat double-chin fat.
What Issues Does It Address?
Kybella is specifically formulated to correct submental fullness, commonly referred to as “double chin.” It is ideal for people looking for fat reduction for an improved chin profile.
What Does Kybella Feel Like?
Our experienced medical staff will carefully administer a series of injections into the fat under the chin with a very fine needle. You will have the option to receive ice and numbing cream prior to the injections to minimize any potential discomfort. Patients typically experience a mild stinging sensation for approximately 15-20 minutes after your injections.
How Long Is Each Kybella Treatment Session?
Expect each Kybella injection session to last about 15-20 minutes. The injections just take a few minutes, but your chin is numbed for several minutes prior to treatment.
When Will I See Results From My Kybella Treatment?
Results are noticeable four to six weeks following your Kybella injections, with complete results eight weeks after your full treatment cycle.
How Much Does Kybella Cost?
Kybella costs $575 per vial in Austin at Viva Day Spa + Med Spa. Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the total treatment cost depends on your desired outcome and the number of vials in your treatment plan. Most patients require 2-4 vials per treatment for optimal results. The average national Kybella cost is $1400 according to a survey of 993 RealSelf members.

How Many Kybella Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
Kybella typically requires between 2-4 treatments spaced approximately eight weeks apart. During your pre-treatment consultation, our medical team will help you decide how many sessions you will need to achieve your aesthetic goals.
How Long Does Kybella Last? Are Results Permanent?
Yes, Kybella results are permanent. Once you get rid of all the fat cells in your double chin with Kybella injections, they disappear forever. In fact, once fat cells under your skin are destroyed by Kybella, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. No additional injections are necessary once you have achieve the outcome you desire.
Swelling After Kybella Injections
You will experience swelling after your Kybella treatment. The swelling is an inflammatory reaction that occurs when Kybella’s active ingredient (deoxycholic acid) dissolves the fat cells under your chin. Post-treatment swelling is moderate and typically lasts about 5-7 days. It is most noticeable after the first treatment session when the largest number of fat cells need to be destroyed. Each subsequent treatment will cause less inflammation, and in turn less swelling.
On rare occasions, Kybella swelling can be quite significant with a “bullfrog” appearance that can take up to a month to resolve.
Kybella Side Effects
The most common side effects of Kybella treatments are all temporary. Here’s what might occur post-treatment:
- Swelling under your chin at the treatment area
- Bruising from injections around the treatment area
- Burning or redness at the treatment area
- Pain/stinging at the treatment area (usually dissipates in 15-20 minutes)
- Nodule or hard skin at the treatment area
- Numbness at the site of injection
