Say Goodbye to Double Chin with KYBELLA® Non-Surgical Injectables at Healing Waters
KYBELLA® is the perfect solution to destroy fat cells that may give you a double chin. Everyone's chin profile differs, and our nurses have advanced training to tailor your treatment. We have found that most profiles require up to two vials per treatment and often need three vials to give you a comprehensive treatment. If you are ready to ditch the double chin, book a complimentary face consultation today to develop a treatment plan.
The Injectable Solution for Double Chin Reduction
Kybella is a non-surgical, injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of a double chin, also known as submental fullness. Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps break down and absorb dietary fat.
Understanding How KYBELLA Works
Kybella works by destroying the fat cells under the chin, leading to a reduction in the appearance of a double chin. When injected into the submental area, Kybella causes the fat cells to break down and be absorbed by the body, resulting in a more defined and contoured chin and jawline.
Each treatment includes up to 3 vials.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for KYBELLA?
Kybella may be right if you are over 18 and bothered by a double chin but don’t want surgery. Ideal candidates eat well and exercise but struggle with submental fullness. You cannot be treated if you have an infection in the treatment area.
What is downtime?
Bruising and swelling may be experienced for 2-3 weeks after your treatment, but most people can resume normal activities immediately.
How long until I see results after KYBELLA treatments?
Most individuals will see results after 2-4 treatments.
Does it hurt?
Some individuals may experience mild pain after treatment. To help alleviate this, we may have you apply a cold compress to the area before treatment. Your nurse will determine if a local anesthetic is necessary as well.
Are the results permanent?
When injected into the fat under the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
Are there any side effects?
The injection site may be sensitive after treatment, and swelling is likely. In clinical studies, most reported cases of swelling were mild or moderate and generally became less severe and happened less often with each treatment. To help reduce pain and swelling, your nurse may apply a cold pack or local anesthesia to the area. Besides swelling, other common side effects include bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Serious but uncommon side effects include nerve injury in the jaw (which can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness) or trouble swallowing.
How many treatments will I need?
Since everyone’s chin size and shape differ, the number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. During a complimentary consultation, a Healing Waters nurse or physician will recommend a treatment course personalized to your needs and goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least one month apart, and you should not receive more than six treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received six treatments.
What are the do's and don'ts after Kybella?
After a Kybella treatment, it is essential to avoid lying down for at least 4 hours, rubbing or massaging the treated area, and avoiding intense exercise for at least 24 hours. You may also experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site, and keeping the area clean and dry is essential. You should also avoid exposing the treated area to excessive heat or sunlight.
How long does it take for Kybella to heal fully?
The recovery time after a Kybella treatment is minimal. You can expect to return to normal activities immediately after the treatment, although you may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve within a few hours to a few days. The full impact of Kybella can take several weeks to several months to become apparent as the body continues to break down and absorb the destroyed fat cells.
