Say Goodbye to that Double Chin

Kybella is one of the first and only cosmetic injectables used to reduce submental fat, otherwise known as a double chin. The submental fat doesn’t usually respond to traditional diets and exercise, leaving you with only two options — surgeries or Kybella injectables. Aura Aesthetics provides extremely safe Kybella injections to reduce submental fat with natural-looking results. Please schedule a consultation to discuss your Kybella options with our provider.

About Kybella

Kybella is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable that reduces submental fullness. Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring component that’s responsible for the breakdown and subsequent absorption of fats in your body. The treatment relies on the strategic injection of Kybella into the problem areas. The increased concentration of deoxycholic acid in your submental region eliminates the fat cells, allowing the provider to contour the region to give you a contoured silhouette.

Kybella is nothing short of a revolutionary treatment because there are no other non-surgical treatments for a double chin. In the past, the only way to remove fat cells from targeted regions was through surgical procedures, such as liposuction, neck lifts, facelifts, etc. Surgical procedures necessitated anesthesia, incisions, and long downtimes. Kybella, in comparison, only involves a few strategically-delivered injections with no incisions and reduced downtime. Furthermore, since deoxycholic acid is readily found in the body, it’s perfectly safe and biocompatible.

Kybella Candidates

Kybella is suitable for most people with minimal contraindications because it relies on a compound that’s readily available in the human body. Kybella is suitable for adults who have excess fat tissues under their chin resulting in a double chin. If you’ve tried exercise and dieting to no avail, then Kybella injections can help you achieve a slender and contoured appearance. However, you may not qualify for the treatment if you’re taking blood-thinning medications, have a history of allergies, are pregnant, have excessive skin laxity, or plan on undergoing surgery in the submental region.

Kybella Treatment Overview


Based on the treatment plan, your provider will deliver the injections in the chosen regions to ensure smooth and natural-looking results with even fat reduction. Most patients need six injections in strategically-chosen regions to produce smooth results without lumps. You may also need a series of sessions spaced one month apart for optimal results.


Most Kybella treatments conclude within 20 minutes. Common side effects include some swelling, discomfort, or burning around the injection sites, but these side effects will dissipate gradually.

Kybella produces results after 4-8 weeks, but you’ll continue seeing improvements to your silhouette as your fat cells are gradually absorbed and metabolized. The treatment results are permanent, but you must maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.

Scheduling Your Consultation

During your initial consultation, your provider will examine your submental fullness and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine the number of injections necessary to produce the desired results. They will also review your medical history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate and talk you through all the pros/cons of the procedure.
