When patients are struggling with a double chin, they often think that plastic surgery is the only way to achieve a better look. Thankfully, new to the market is an amazing alternative that is non-surgical and effective at reducing the excess fat underneath the chin. Kybella treatment is an injectable service for patients in the Jacksonville, FL area and provides a gradual and natural reduction in submental fullness. However, many patients will ask Dr. Mary Pentel and her team at Southside Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center, “How does Kybella treatment work?”

More about Kybella

Kybella is an injectable treatment that is used for combatting submental fullness, the proper name for the excess fat that can develop underneath the chin and result in a “double chin.” This injectable is formulated with deoxycholic acid. This can address unwanted fat cells in the area in which it is injected and provide a noticeable improvement in a relatively short period of time. The results are gradual, and is perfect for a patient who does not want to have plastic surgery performed, which can make it obvious that “work was done.”

How does it work?

Kybella is injected into the chin area when patients come into the office for their treatment. It is fast, effective, and relatively comfortable. Patients can go about the rest of their day without interruption, as there is no healing or downtime. This makes it a wonderful opportunity for busy, active patients.

  • Safe and FDA approved
  • Effective at reducing submental fullness
  • Done quickly in the office
  • Performed by our experienced team
