Kybella® is the first — and only — injectable treatment that is able to eliminate stubborn fat. This unique treatment can help you get rid of your double chin for good. At Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics, we offer Kybella® to the men and women of Virginia including McLean, Falls Church, Tysons, Arlington plus the Washington DC area.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is an injectable treatment that is used to destroy fat cells under the chin in order to address submental fullness, otherwise known as a double chin. Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment with the ability to do this. The key to this treatment is deoxycholic acid, the main ingredient in Kybella®.

Deoxycholic acid is something that is found naturally in the body, which aids the body in breaking down and absorbing fat. When injected under the chin, the Kybella® formula targets fat cells in the area. Over the weeks following treatment, Kybella® eliminates these fat cells to produce a more contoured facial profile.

How Much Does Kybella® Cost?

The cost of Kybella® will vary by patient. The cost of this treatment depends on the amount of Kybella® necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will take these factors into consideration in order to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing services like CareCredit® to help make your treatment more affordable.

What is the Kybella® Treatment Like?

The Kybella® treatment is fairly simple, and begins with the application of an anesthetic. This will reduce any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. After the skin is numbed, Kybella® will be injected underneath the chin into the pockets of fat. This process takes only a few minutes, which means the full Kybella® treatment is typically complete in less than 30 minutes.

What is Recovery Like After Kybella®?

After a Kybella® treatment, the most common side effects are swelling and bruising in the treatment area. These effects can vary in severity, but often fade within a few days. Despite these effects, you’ll be able to resume all normal activities immediately after your treatment. There is no significant downtime or recovery period necessary.

What Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?

The results from Kybella® will start to become visible a few weeks after treatment, once the formula begins to break down fat cells under the chin. Most patients begin to notice results within a month, with optimal results developing about two to three months after treatment. However, some patients may need multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. The Kybella® formula destroys fat cells in the treatment area, so you can expect the results to be permanent as long as you maintain healthy lifestyle habits following your treatment.
