FAT REDUCTION UNDER CHIN
Diminish the double chin with a treatment tailored for you.
Fat Reduction of Submental Fullness (Double chin)
According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 7 out of 10 adults — women and men alike — are frustrated by submental fullness (along the neck, beneath the chin). The presence of submental fullness, whether due to genetics, diet, aging, or some combination, can add years to your face. The chin and neck are an important frame for the face, and a change there can dramatically improve the way you look.
Coastal Skin Solutions offers Kybella®, a great non-invasive procedure for treating a double chin without surgery.
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that permanently destroys fat cells, treating moderate to severe fat accumulation, to improve the appearance and profile under the chin.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down the membranes of fat cells. When injected into the fat of the chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells so they can no longer store or accumulate fat, which results in a noticeable reduction in the fullness under the chin.
Once Kybella destroys the unwanted fat permanently and an ideal look is achieved, subsequent treatments are no longer needed. Once the fat is gone, it is gone.
The dissolved fat is cleared by the lymphatic and circulatory systems, as any waste product in the body does, gradually over the span of several weeks. The Kybella/deoxycholic acid follows the same path, getting metabolized and broken down, and then excreted as waste.
During your Kybella treatment, you are seated in a comfortable position, and a topical numbing agent or ice pack is applied to ease any pain or discomfort. A series of stickers are then applied to the targeted areas to be treated. You will receive multiple small injections to the submental area – a process that takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections depends upon the amount of fat under your chin and your desired profile.
After your treatment, you can resume your normal activities. With a minimal recovery, results vary from person to person. Many patients experience visible results in two to four Kybella treatments. A tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile will be developed for you.

Kybella FAQ. 3 Things to Know!
Can Kybella replace a facelift?
Kybella dissolves fat but does not remove loose skin. To fully understand if Kybella can meet your expectations, as opposed to results from a surgical procedure, discuss your goals at your consultation. We do oftentimes combine Kybella with Ultherapy. Once the adipose tissue is removed, if loose skin remains, we can then perform an Ultherapy treatment to firm it back up.
How many Kybella treatments does it take?
Reducing chin fat incrementally is just one benefit of Kybella. The number of treatments you’ll need is dependent on your desired outcome to be determined at your consultation. However, we tell most folks not to commit to Kybella unless they plan to do at least two treatments. This treatment is a process, not a quick fix.
Can I resume normal activities after Kybella?
You will be given specific instructions on post-treatment do’s and don’ts based upon your own routine.
