Kybella® Q & A

Evolution MedSpa Boston

What is Kybella?

A nonsurgical procedure to resolve double chins Kybella is FDA approved to reduce fat cells under your chin and neck. A uniquely designed synthetic deoxycholic acid, this injectable solution enhances submental fat breakdown and absorption, permanently reducing fat under the chin.

During your Kybella treatment at Evolution MedSpa Boston, Drs. Cappiello use up to 50 injections along your chin and neck. These injections cause fat cells to dissolve, where they’re absorbed and removed by natural body processes. In most cases, they recommend multiple treatment sessions for optimal results.

Although there’s minimal discomfort with Kybella injections, ask Drs. Cappiello about a topical numbing agent if you’re concerned about pain.

Why do some people get submental fullness?

Submental fullness, the clinical name for double chins, is the result of weight gain, age, and genetics. This fat doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, and while it doesn’t create a health threat, it does create a cosmetic concern and can impact your self-esteem.

Submental fullness is common among overweight men and women alike. It also may be associated with a high-calorie diet and eating a lot of processed foods. Poor posture may make you more prone to developing a double chin due to weak neck muscles.
