One of the most effective ways to stay younger longer is through a defined chin and jawline. Unfortunately, a double chin isn’t easily exercised away, and diet only goes so far if the double chin is genetic. Colorado Skin & Vein understands how big a role a person’s face shape and profile plays in their confidence. If you’ve got a double chin, we can help.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® is one of the only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatments to correct submental fullness or the dreaded double chin. The body naturally produces deoxycholic acid to break down dietary fat as a daily function. Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid that, when injected into the submental area, can improve the appearance of a double chin, no matter how severe. It safely breaks down the membranes of submental fat cells and the body filters them out through the normal metabolic process.
We are born with a fairly static number of fat cells, and throughout our lives, those fat cells grow and shrink in size, not number. Once Kybella® has targeted the fat in your double chin and your body has metabolized it, it’s gone, and it’s likely not coming back. Some fat cushion will remain, and it will fill in the gaps left by the metabolized cells, so there are no bumps or lumpy places. Just your jawline: smooth, prominent, and proud without excess fat to rob you of youth and confidence.
Am I a Good Candidate?

Treatment, Recovery, and Results
Your Kybella® treatment is as simple as a series of injections in the submental area. No incisions, no bandages, and virtually no downtime. The treatment is performed in the Colorado Skin & Vein offices and takes less than 30 minutes. You may experience mild swelling and tenderness, but these resolve within a week or two.
Most people require between 2 and 4 Kybella® treatments to reach their aesthetic goals, but results are visible 4-6 weeks following the very first treatment. Improvement continues throughout the treatment process, peaking between 3-6 months. It takes time for the body to process the changes, but when the fat cells are gone, they’re really, truly gone.
How Much Does Kybella Cost?
The cost of Kybella® depends quite a lot on your geographical location and the expertise of your chosen practitioner. At Colorado Skin & Vein, our injection specialists maximize your treatment through careful, precise placement while also ensuring you get the most out of each injection to minimize the number of vials you may need. The average price of Kybella® is between $1,200-$1,800 per session.
A pleasing face shape is one of the features that can redirect attention from other facial flaws like fine lines and wrinkles, so let the Colorado Skin & Vein team, under the guidance of Dr. David Verebelyi, give you the jawline and defined chin you’ve always wanted. You can now do it without surgery, without going under risky anesthesia, and without a lengthy recovery. Just a few injections and your double chin will melt away. Call us for more information today!
