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, our staff is 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.
Is Kybella For You?
The best patients for Kybella treatments have additional fat in the upper throat (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection addresses stubborn pockets of fat that are difficult to lose because of genetics, aging, or other health conditions. If you are at a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped reduce the fat in your submental area, Kybella might be a good option for your cosmetic goals.

"Just finished my microblading-----looks very natural and color is perfect. It is amazing how everything changes "shape" as you get older (and of course that over plucking didn't help) and who wants to use an eyebrow pencil----not me! Great work and would recommend for anyone who wants natural looking eyebrows."- A.R. / Google / Feb 05, 2020

Kybella is completed as an in-office appointment. Generally, if we have enough appointment space, we can perform your treatment at the same time as your consultation. If preferred and after cleaning your skin, one of our team members may apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area. The procedure takes about 15 minutes, which includes a few small injections targeting the submental area. At Versailles Medical Spa, patients may need 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 so after the treatment and when you feel ready, you can return to your normal activities. Following the treatment, you 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 to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. After Kybella injections, you typically notice that your neck appears slimmer, tighter, and more defined.
