Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kybella?

KYBELLA is an FDA-approved treatment for localized fat reduction in the submental area. The submental area underneath the chin is a source of frustration for many people. Submental fat can give you a double chin, making you look older or heavier than you really are, and can be hard to eliminate.

If you’re bothered by the look of your profile because of submental fat, KYBELLA could be right for you. It’s a nonsurgical injectable treatment that eliminates unwanted fat below the chin to contour your profile.

KYBELLA can be a great treatment option for men and women alike who live healthy lifestyles but can’t lose excess fat below the chin.


How does Kybella work?

KYBELLA contains synthetic deoxycholic acid to target and destroy stubborn fat below the chin. Deoxycholic acid in its natural form breaks down and absorbs dietary fat in the body. KYBELLA uses these benefits to tackle submental fullness.

Josephine and the aesthetic team at SkinDesigner Clinic inject KYBELLA directly into the area below your chin. The solution destroys fat cells, which are then absorbed by your body’s lymphatic system. Once destroyed, those fat cells won’t return.


What can I expect if I get Kybella?

Josephine offers comprehensive consultations for clients interested in refining their profiles with KYBELLA. She examines your submental area and talks with you about your medical history, goals for treatment, and lifestyle choices.

During your KYBELLA treatment session, you’ll receive a number of small injections around your chin and neck. Your aesthetician can apply a topical anesthetic to help you remain comfortable.

Treatment generally takes just 15-20 minutes in the office. KYBELLA begins working immediately, and you’ll begin to notice reduced submental fat over the coming weeks.

Most clients achieve desirable results with 2-4 KYBELLA treatments spaced one month apart, but every person is unique and your recommended treatment plan may vary. Since destroyed fat cells are absorbed by your body, they’ll never store fat again so your results are permanent.

If you’re unhappy with the look of your profile, KYBELLA can help. Make an appointment with the aesthetic team at SkinDesigner Clinic on the phone or online to find out if KYBELLA is right for you.
