We carefully administer an injection called Kybella over the chin region to target submental fat. Only a very small needle is needed for Kybella injections, and the complete procedure often only takes 10 to 20 minutes.

Defining Your Chin with Kybella
The body naturally stores fat in the area beneath the chin. Many of our patients dislike the appearance of fullness that might result from this. The aging process, genetics, or even just regular weight increase can all contribute to excess fat beneath the chin. They want a tighter, more angular silhouette. So for those looking to eliminate excess fat from their face, traditional methods like diet and exercise may not always be the most effective choice.
A “double chin” can affect anyone, including those who maintain a healthy lifestyle and are at a regular weight. The only nonsurgical, FDA-approved injectable procedure to shape the chin and get rid of extra fat is Kybella®.
How It Works
Deoxycholic acid, the active component of Kybella, is a naturally occurring compound in the body that aids in the breakdown and elimination of surplus fat cells.
After a series of 3 to 6 treatment sessions, patients seeking Kybella in Parker, CO, can anticipate achieving a significantly more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.
Kybella injections have no required downtime, which is exactly how most of our patients prefer it. You don’t want to put your life on hold just so you can look your best. You can return to work or your normal activities after leaving our office, but some swelling is expected.
Kybella can help eliminate fat cells for a less prominent double chin. Take a look at our before and after gallery and see how Kybella works to erase unwanted fat.
