Say goodbye to the double chin with Kybella, the non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin, resulting in a more defined and contoured jawline. At Beautifully New in Park Ridge, our skilled practitioners use Kybella to help you achieve your aesthetic goals and enhance natural beauty without downtime.

Say Goodbye to Submental Fullness

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment designed to improve the appearance of submental fullness, also known as a double chin. The treatment involves injecting a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat, into the targeted area under the chin. This destroys the fat cells and results in a slimmer and more defined jawline.

Kybella Treats:

  • Submental fullness or double chin
  • Excess fat deposits under the chin area
  • Lack of definition in the jawline
  • Unwanted fat in the neck area

How Kybella Works

Kybella contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a molecule naturally produced by the body to break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the targeted area under the chin, the synthetic deoxycholic acid disrupts the fat cell membrane, causing the cell to break down and be absorbed by the body’s natural processes. The treated area becomes slimmer, resulting in a more defined jawline. As the destroyed fat cells do not regenerate, Kybella provides long-lasting results.

Advantages of Kybella:

  • Non-surgical alternative to liposuction
  • Quick and relatively painless treatment
  • No downtime and minimal recovery period
  • FDA-approved and safe for most individuals
  • Long-lasting results with proper maintenance and care
  • Customizable treatment plan to meet individual aesthetic goals
  • Provides a more defined jawline and facial profile
  • No scarring or visible incisions

Potential Side Effects of Kybella:

  • Swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site
  • Temporary numbness or tingling sensation in the treatment area
  • Hardness or lumps under the chin
  • Mild to moderate pain or discomfort
  • Temporary difficulty swallowing or talking
  • In rare cases, nerve injury or uneven smile
  • Allergic reaction or infection (very rare)

Your Kybella Session

Before your Kybella session, your practitioner will discuss your aesthetic goals and assess your eligibility for the treatment. The targeted area will be cleaned and numbed, and a grid pattern will be marked to ensure accurate injections. The practitioner will administer the Kybella injections using a small needle, targeting the submental fat cells under your chin. The process takes about 15-20 minutes, and you can resume daily activities immediately.


Social or Professional Downtime?

Following your Kybella treatment, you may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising, which typically resolves within a few days. You can resume most of your normal activities immediately after the treatment, but it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise or activities that involve bending or lifting for a few days. It is also best to avoid social or professional events for a few days until any visible side effects subside.

Results: Onset & Longevity

You may see a noticeable reduction in submental fullness within a few weeks after your Kybella treatment. Most patients require 2-4 treatments to achieve optimal results, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The results of Kybella are long-lasting, as the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed and eliminated from the body. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight can help prolong the effects of the treatment.
