This troublesome pocket of submental fat rarely responds to diet and exercise, and yet surgery may be too invasive of a solution for many. Thankfully, there is a safe, FDA-approved injectable intervention called Kybella, which expertly treats neck fat and helps to restore a shapely, tightened silhouette, all without surgery, liposuction or downtime.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a compound that occurs naturally in the human body and is responsible for fat breakdown and elimination. Once injected at key locations, the deoxycholic acid triggers cell death for the fat molecules, afterwards escorting them out of the body as part of its regular waste removal process.

Before the procedure, the patient may receive pain relief in the form of a topical anesthetic. Depending on your needs, and on what is discussed during consultation, our team will then administer anywhere from 15 to 50 Kybella injections. On average, the entire treatment takes less than 30 minutes to complete. To achieve best results, several follow up sessions are required, with improvements seen in stages.


While treatment with Kybella is highly tolerable and generally without incident, some clients may experience mild redness, swelling or tingling post-injection. Though individual results vary, these side effects quickly evaporate, usually within a day or so. An ice pack at the treatment site or a few ibuprofen can help relieve any unwanted discomfort.

A return to work or school immediately after your procedure is commonplace, although it’s best to avoid heavy exercise for one week after treatment, just to make sure there is no undue swelling as a result.
