Put Your Best Chin Forward


Are you one of the two out of three Americans bothered by fat under your chin? Double chin, turkey neck, submental fat (if you’re a doctor) – you know what we’re talking about. It makes you look older and heavier than you really are. You work out. You eat well. And still it doesn’t go away. Or so it went before Kybella.


Kybella is a new injectable treatment that melts away the excess fat that causes double chins. The substance is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring human material that helps the body absorb fat. Once injected it breaks up the membrane surrounding the fat cells. The fat breaks up and is reabsorbed by the body where it is metabolized by the liver. Once the cell is destroyed it cannot come back. The result – permanent reduction in your double chin.


How many treatments will I need?

At Vivesse we will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 Kybella treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.

Does it work?

On RealSelf there is an 88% satisfaction rate with Kybella. So, it works on the vast majority of patients.

How long will results last?

Kybella accomplishes permanent destruction of fat. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. You can accumulate more fat at a later time but the effects last many years.

Is Kybella right for me?

If you’re bothered by fullness under your chin and wish to avoid surgery, Kybella may be right for you. Remember, Kybella only works if the fullness is caused by fat. If the cause is sagging skin then JuvaShape for skin tightening may be a better treatment for you. Your specialist at Vivesse will help you make that determination.

Are there any possible side effects?

The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. Most of these resolve easily. Occasional more severe side effects such as trouble swallowing or nerve injury can occur.
