About This Patient
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment that targets and destroys unwanted or hard-to-lose fat cells below the chin and jaw. It comes in the form of an injectable that the team at Amélie places beneath your chin at multiple injection sites.
The active ingredient in Kybella is called deoxycholic acid, which is a bile acid. Your liver produces the same acid to help break down fat from your diet in your intestines. Similarly, Kybella injections help break down stored fat beneath your chin. The fat cells that Kybella destroys can no longer store fat at all, so the results are permanent.
What does Kybella treat?
Kybella treats double chin fat and the fat that contributes to your jowls. Fat in the chin area is often particularly difficult to lose even if you follow a healthy diet. This is because chin fat usually develops because of your genes, posture, age-related skin laxity, and other factors that have nothing to do with your weight.
How Many Sessions of Kybella Do I Need?
The number of Kybella sessions varies depending on the individual’s goals and the amount of submental fat being treated. Many people see noticeable results after two to four treatments, spaced about a month apart.
Is There Any Downtime After a Kybella Treatment?
Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after a Kybella treatment. However, it’s common to experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area for a few days following the injections.
Are Kybella Results Permanent?
Yes, the results of Kybella are generally considered permanent because the treated fat cells are destroyed and naturally eliminated by the body. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help prevent the accumulation of new fat in the area.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella?
Adults with moderate to severe submental fat who are looking for a non-surgical solution to their double chin can be good candidates for Kybella. A consultation with a medical professional can determine if Kybella is right for you.
Are There Any Side Effects with Kybella?
Common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness around the treatment area. These effects are usually temporary and subside on their own.

How many treatments with Kybella will I need?
If you choose to get Kybella injections for your double chin, the Amélie team tells you how many rounds of treatments you’ll need to see a significant reduction. In most cases, a single round of Kybella injections involves 20-50 individual injections. You’ll start noticing a difference after 2-4 treatments, but you may need up to six treatments in total.
Am I a good candidate for Kybella?
Before adding Kybella to your aesthetic transformation, you should consult with a member of the team at Amélie about your goals and health history. They might decide that you’re a candidate for Kybella injections if you:
- Are 18 or older
- Feel uncomfortable with your chin fat
- Have never had facial surgery
- Aren’t pregnant or breastfeeding
- Exercise and eat healthy foods
- Don’t want to undergo surgery
If you and your provider decide together that Kybella is right for you, they tell you what you can expect during your treatment and how to prepare for a successful appointment in Vancouver or Tigard.
