For many professionals, a strong, pleasing profile isn’t only a confidence boost, it actively contributes to the air of competence and success. Additionally, the jawline is one of the most difficult areas to shape through a healthy diet and exercise. As such, when a double chin appears, it can lead to insecurity and even distress. Colorado Skin & Vein doesn’t believe you should have to live with a double chin and thankfully offers KYBELLA® treatments as a minimally invasive alternative to a facelift.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
For the longest time, a face or neck lift was the only way to address submental fullness or the dreaded double chin. Not anymore. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that reduces a double chin without more drastic measures. KYBELLA’S® active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which the body makes naturally to dissolve dietary fat. KYBELLA® works on the same principle, dissolving fat cells beneath your chin and around your jawline to improve your profile and give you a strong, sculpted chin. Your body absorbs the damaged cells and naturally filters them out.
KYBELLA® can slim your facial appearance with only one treatment, improving your self-confidence and self-esteem. Double chins plague both men and women, and while some patients may require more than one treatment, KYBELLA® is so effective, once your goal has been reached, no maintenance treatments are required.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for KYBELLA® treatments are those who are bothered by submental fullness but aren’t sure about a more invasive procedure like a neck lift. Schedule a complimentary consultation with Colorado Skin & Vein for more information.
What is Treatment Like?
KYBELLA® treatments are done in the Colorado Skin & Vein offices and are generally less than 30 minutes. Once your initial treatment plan is created and all your questions are answered, your provider will mark the area for the most optimal placement of the injections.
An optional topical anesthetic is available for maximum patient comfort while a series of injections are administered. Following treatment, you’ll be free to resume your normal routine immediately. KYBELLA® goes to work, slowly dissolving away the problematic fat cells while your body metabolizes them.

When Will I See Results?
KYBELLA’S® benefits do take some time to become visible, but for some, this is a positive thing. Your chin and jawline will slim down over the course of 4-6 weeks. There are no obvious signs you’ve had work done immediately, therefore your friends and loved ones only need to know if you want them to.
Further treatments may be necessary to achieve your optimal results, but once the fat is dissolved, new fat cells will not develop. A healthy lifestyle will help you maintain your newly sculpted jawline for the long-term.
Is There Any Downtime?
While there may be some tenderness, swelling, and bruising, these side effects are mild and resolve within a week or two without slowing you down. Avoiding ibuprofen and acetaminophen prior to your treatment can help further minimize bruising.
Let your confidence soar with a profile you can be proud of. Dr. Verebelyi and the Colorado Skin & Vein team are passionate about bringing our patients the latest innovations and treatments available in the cosmetic enhancement industry, of which KYBELLA® is another example. Say goodbye to your double chin and hello to a new you.
