Are you unhappy, self-conscious, or embarrassed by your double chin? The solution is KYBELLA.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment that targets submental fullness (double chin). Kybella is a minimally invasive non-surgical approach will permanently destroy the cells that store fat under the chin. Patients will experience an elegant profile and refined jawline.

Submental fullness can be genetic or caused by aging process, bone loss in the chin area. The stubborn condition may cause patients to look older or heavier than they really are, despite living healthy lifestyles. Kybella could be a non-surgical alternative to Liposuction.

FDA-approved Kybella eliminates fullness under the chin and prevents fat from being stored there in the future. Kybella procedures require minimal recovery time, and side effects are minor and temporary.

How many Kybella treatments will you need?

Dr. Allen will utilize facial mapping to create an individualized treatment plan. Some patients may need one or two for jay line enhancement, some may need as many as six Kybella treatments. During each Kybella treatment, you will be given small injections under the chin using the smallest needle available. Subsequent treatments will occur every 4 to 5 weeks. Many patients start to see results between 2 to 4 weeks after Kybella treatment.


How long will the results last after Kybella?

Kybella destroys the fat cells under the chin, jawlines. These cells will never be able to accumulate and store fat. Once you have completed your treatment plan there are no touch ups or further treatments necessary.

What are the possible side effects of using Kybella?

The most common side effects of Kybella include injection site swelling, bruising, numbness, pain, a hardened mass formation.

Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) has occurred after Kybella. Patients who already have dysphagia could experience a temporary exacerbation of symptoms.

On rare occasion marginal, mandibular nerve injury has occurred with the use of Kybella. Symptoms include problems opening the mouth, and distortion in smiling and grimace. Usually those Symptoms resolve within a month and 12 months.

Do not use Kybella if you have in infection in the area to be injected.


Kybella can be part of a broader plan to restore youthful look. Not every patient is a perfect candidate for Everything. Dr. Allen’s approach is based on “individual plan” rather than a “Product”. The best outcome from a consultation is to understand the aging process and the volume loss in the face as a result from bone and fat loss or what is known as “fat pads” and the effect of this loss on the face wrinkles, sagging and jawline fat.

This understand is what will make you “with the help of Dr. Allen” come with the best approach to have an affordable plan to reverse aging.

We have many FDA approved injectable fillers to help soften these unwanted wrinkles. Sculptra will be the best “foundation” option to the face. Few Sculptra should be considered in every face and regardless of the age to create that glamorous skin known as “Sculptra Glow”. Bellafill will be the non-surgical alternative to Facelift or Eye Brow Lift for example.
