What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is an innovative non-surgical treatment that targets fat below the chin. The injections are made up of deoxycholic acid. Kybella® is effective for reducing jowls naturally with no need for surgery.

How Long Does Kybella® Swelling Last?

After receiving Kybella®, you may experience swelling for up to 4 to 6 weeks before complete recovery.

How Does Kybella® Work?

At Levy Dermatology, we always ensure that our patients get the best and most comfortable treatments. During your Kybella® treatment, one of our expert providers will inject Kybella® directly into your submental tissue to ensure that the treatment works as fast as possible.


The Kybella® injection contains deoxycholic acid, which dissolves the unwanted fat cells without affecting any healthy tissue. The entire Kybella® treatment at Levy Dermatology often takes up to 45 minutes. 


After your procedure, the unwanted fat cells will gradually dissolve before being flushed out of your body. 

When Can I Expect Results?

Kybella® can permanently eliminate fat cells without surgery. You can start seeing the results of your Kybella® treatment within 2-6 months


The treatment works well to reduce fat in unwanted areas of your face and neck for a more youthful appearance. Many people notice visible results after 2-4 treatment sessions which are often spaced 1 month apart. Schedule an appointment with us today for a consultation with one of our providers to find out if Kybella® is right for you!


We will carefully examine the treatment area during your consultation at Levy Dermatology and answer your questions before determining the number of sessions needed. 

What are the Benefits of Kybella®?

There are several great benefits to Kybella® treatments.

  • It’s a great alternative to chin liposuction
  • Kybella® treatment is relatively fast. It typically takes up to 45 minutes
  • It is a minimally invasive procedure
  • It gives you a rejuvenated appearance
  • It provides lasting results

Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?

Ideal candidates for Kybella® injections are healthy people who want to get rid of excess fat under the chin or jawline. They should also have realistic expectations. Kybella® patients should have good skin laxity, as this treatment does not tighten any sagging skin that’s left behind after the treatment
