What is Kybella?

Kybella is an innovative, FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to target and reduce submental fullness, commonly called a "double chin." The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the submental area, Kybella effectively destroys fat cells, leading to a more contoured and defined jawline.

What are the Benefits of Kybella?

Kybella offers a wide range of benefits. Most clients choose to go forward with the procedure because it: 

  • Is a non-surgical solution for reducing submental fullness
  • Provides a customizable treatment to address specific concerns
  • Is a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime
  • Offers long-lasting results with proper maintenance
  • Delivers natural-looking results to improve jawline contour

How the Kybella Treatment Works


The treatment involves a series of injections into the targeted submental area. Dr. Frankel utilizes his expertise to administer Kybella, strategically ensuring a precise and effective treatment. The number of injections required will vary based on individual needs and the desired outcome. The procedure typically takes 15 to 20 minutes, and patients can resume their daily activities shortly after the treatment.

Kybella Recovery and Results

After the Kybella treatment, some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area. These effects are typical and generally subside within a few days. Dr. Frankel and his team will provide detailed post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimize the results of the Kybella procedure.

Kybella treatment typically leads to a noticeable reduction in submental fullness, resulting in a more sculpted and defined jawline. Over the following weeks, the targeted fat cells are gradually metabolized and eliminated by the body, leading to a more contoured appearance. Patients can expect long-lasting improvements in their submental profile with proper treatment and maintenance.
