What is KYBELLA?
Just a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area can lead to the appearance of a "double chin" that many people want to get rid of. The excess pockets of fat below the chin (also known as the submental area) lead to a softer chin and jawline. A double chin is often genetically inherited, but aging and weight gain can also contribute. To address submental fat, the team at Elysium SurgiSpa in Chicago, IL is pleased to offer nonsurgical KYBELLA injections. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a man-made version of deoxycholic acid that works like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat. Once it is injected beneath the chin, you can see a noticeable decrease in fat, revealing a slim profile and strong jawline.

What to Expect with Kybella
KYBELLA is performed during an in-office appointment in Chicago, IL. If needed, we will apply a numbing cream to the treated area before multiple small injections are made in the submental area. You may be able to achieve your desired goal after a single session, or you may need several treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart. After your injections, you can leave our office and return to your daily activities. You may experience short-term numbness, bruising, or swelling under your chin, but this shouldn't last longer than a couple of days. Within 4 – 6 weeks, your neck should appear tighter, slimmer, and more defined. Even though the fat cells that are eliminated won't regenerate, be sure to maintain a steady weight to prevent new pockets of fat from developing.
How much does KYBELLA cost?
Your costs for KYBELLA will depend on the number of sessions you need. During your consultation, a customized plan will be made to fit your goals and budget. A team member will also discuss payment options with you in your first appointment.
How does KYBELLA work?
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in KYBELLA, is designed to break down and destroy fat cells in the submental area. After the fat cells are destroyed, these fat cells will not grow back. This is why more injections should not be needed as soon as you have met your goal.
Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of the body?
Currently, KYBELLA is only available for the treatment of the area below the chin. KYBELLA has been proven to effectively minimize the look of a double chin. KYBELLA has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on any other areas of the body.
Am I eligible for a KYBELLA treatment?
There are a few factors that could make you ineligible to receive a KYBELLA treatment. You need to be over 18 years old, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and you should not have an active infection at the treatment site. Before the process begins, you should be open about your medical history and health concerns so that they can determine if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction from the treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
In your initial consultation, a personalized injection plan will be developed to match your needs and goals. Typically, patients receive between 2 – 4 KYBELLA injections to achieve their goals. KYBELLA injections need to be spaced about 30 days apart. You shouldn't receive any more than six treatments.
