What is Kybella?

Just a little extra fat in the upper neck area can create the presence of a "double chin" that is bothersome to both women and men. The excess pockets of fat under the chin (aka the submental area) may be caused by genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations that lead to a weaker jawline and chin for an undefined profile. Our certified nurse injector is happy to offer a revolutionary technique to get rid of neck fat at Johnson Family Medical in Frisco, TX. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical option for upper neck fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that acts like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat. After it is injected below the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in the volume of fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return, so you are able to enjoy your new, slimmer profile and defined jawline for years to come.

Who is a candidate for KYBELLA?

The ideal patients for KYBELLA treatments have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area), which causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats stubborn areas of fat that can't be minimized with normal weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but diet and exercise have not helped eliminate the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be the correct procedure for your needs. While KYBELLA may correct small to moderate amounts of fat in the upper neck, larger amounts of fat may be better suited for surgical liposuction at Johnson Family Medical.

How does KYBELLA work?

KYBELLA is completed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Your injector will usually apply a numbing cream to the treatment area, if requested, after the skin is clean. The injection takes around 15 minutes and is comprised of a few small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may require a single treatment to reach their goal, while other patients may need multiple injections spaced 3 – 4 weeks between each appointment at Johnson Family Medical.

What can I Expect after KYBELLA?

KYBELLA treatments do not need anesthesia, so you are able to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to return to your daily activities. You may notice temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness beneath your chin, although this should not last longer than a few days. Contact Johnson Family Medical immediately if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, including difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is destroyed does not regenerate, the cells that remain can become larger, so you need to maintain a steady weight after your KYBELLA injections to keep new pockets of fat from forming. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing slimmer and tighter, and your neckline will be better defined.


How much does KYBELLA cost?
Your costs for KYBELLA will vary based on how many treatments are needed. During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be developed to work with your goals. A member of our staff will also review the payments we accept in your first appointment.

How does KYBELLA work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA, deoxycholic acid, works to break down and destroy fat cells in the upper neck. Once the fat cells are eliminated, these fat cells will not grow back. This is why additional KYBELLA injections shouldn't be needed once you have finished.

Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of the body?
Right now, KYBELLA is only available for the treatment of the area below the chin. KYBELLA has been proven to effectively minimize the fat in the upper neck that creates the appearance of a double chin. KYBELLA hasn't been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for any other areas of the face or body.

Am I eligible for a KYBELLA treatment?
There are a few factors that could make you ineligible to receive a KYBELLA treatment. You must be over the age of 18 years old, not breastfeeding or pregnant, and you should not have any infection in or around the treatment site. Prior to the process beginning, you should share any health concerns and your medical history with your injector so they can determine if you can safely receive the treatment.

How many treatment sessions will I need?
At your consultation, a personalized injection plan will be created to meet your cosmetic goals. Typically, patients get between 2 – 4 KYBELLA treatments to achieve their goals. KYBELLA treatments must also be made around 30 days apart. You should not get any more than six injections.
