For both men and women, even a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area can cause the presence of an embarrassing double chin. The excess pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) are caused by various factors, including aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations. These various factors can cause a weaker-looking chin and a less defined profile. At Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, CT, we are proud to provide a new way to eliminate neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat cells. Once it's injected under the chin, you should see a noticeable reduction in the volume of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate so as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy your new slender profile and defined jawline for many years.

Kybella is completed as an in-office appointment. At Versailles Medical Spa we can accommodate our patients to be treated After their complimentary consultations. If preferred , after cleansing the area of treatment, the medical provider may apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area. The procedure takes about 20-30 minutes, which includes a few small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may benefit from one treatment to attain their desired goal, while some may need additional injections each spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart.
Your Kybella Injections
Kybella injections don't require general anesthesia therefore you can return to your normal activities after being treated. After Kybella some patients may experience short-term numbness, bruising, or swelling under your chin; however, this usually does not last more than a couple of days. Contact Versailles Medical Spa immediately if you notice unusual symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions look uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the cells that remain can get larger. You should do your best to maintain a steady weight and healthy lifestyle to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. After Kybella injections, you typically notice that your neck appears slimmer, tighter, and more defined.
