When you start to develop a double chin as you age, you just don’t feel like yourself. At least, you certainly don’t feel as attractive as you once did. Because of gravity, anyone is susceptible to developing a double chin: even if they aren’t overweight or obese. Savvy Aesthetics in Bell, California, offers KYBELLA®, a minimally invasive treatment that can allow you to lose the pesky skin or fat beneath your chin without complex surgery or shady fad diets. If you’re interested in learning more about KYBELLA, call or schedule an appointment online at Savvy Aesthetics today.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is an FDA-approved series of injections that target and shrink the fat cells under your chin. The procedure isn’t surgical, so poses fewer risks and requires less downtime than facial surgeries with similar outcomes. 


You’ll need roughly six treatments with KYBELLA to get the sleek and contoured chin of your dreams.* Since your fat cells won’t be able to store fat anymore after KYBELLA, the results are permanent.

How does KYBELLA work?

For those who have kept a healthy diet and exercise regimen and explored surgical options to remove a double chin, KYBELLA may seem like a miracle treatment. Even the most rigorous dieting and exercising are often ineffective at reducing double chins. KYBELLA works by using deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing compound that your body makes naturally. 


During the procedure, your provider at Savvy Aesthetics will give you 20-50 injections of KYBELLA under your chin. Over the course of several weeks, the deoxycholic acid kills your fat cells. Eventually, your body absorbs them, and you can show off your natural bone structure. 

Am I a good candidate for KYBELLA?

You may be a good candidate for KYBELLA if:


  • You feel uncomfortable with your double chin

  • You don’t want to have surgery

  • You eat a healthy diet

  • You exercise regularly

  • You can afford the treatment


Your provider at Savvy Aesthetics determines whether or not your goals align with the treatment and if you have any conditions that put you at a higher risk of side effects from KYBELLA.


Is KYBELLA safe?

Since KYBELLA isn’t a surgical treatment, there are far fewer risks than plastic surgery or liposuction. Side effects include:


  • Pain

  • Swelling

  • Numbness

  • Trouble swallowing

  • An uneven smile

  • Muscle weakness


Some side effects of KYBELLA are more serious and long lasting than others. If you’re concerned about side effects from KYBELLA that last too long or are serious, like muscle weakness or nerve pain, you need to call Savvy Aesthetics immediately.
