American Skin Institute offers Kybella, a non-invasive treatment for moderate to severe submental fullness, commonly known as a double chin. Made from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, Kybella effectively reduces chin fat through a series of quick injections. Unlike surgical options like neck liposuction, Kybella requires no incisions or downtime, making it a convenient choice for those seeking to sculpt their chin area without surgery.

During the procedure, our providers administer Kybella directly into the treatment area using a small needle. The acid works to destroy fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system, gradually reducing the appearance of a double chin.

Results from Kybella treatments are typically long-lasting because once fat cells are destroyed, they do not regenerate under normal conditions. Most patients achieve optimal results after 2-4 sessions, spaced approximately one month apart. Each treatment session is designed to enhance comfort with the use of local anesthesia or numbing cream.

Kybella is FDA-approved specifically for treating submental fat, ensuring both safety and effectiveness. At American Skin Institute, our dedicated providers tailor each treatment plan to individual needs, helping you achieve a more contoured and youthful profile. Contact our Sherman Oaks, Westlake Village, or Beverly Hills offices to schedule your Kybella consultation and take the first step towards a slimmer chin profile!
