Kentucky gravy boat, quad chin, chimple, neck spam, hotdog necklace… Regardless of how you choose to label it, nobody likes having a double chin. The FDA-approved, non-surgical Kybella injections can help tackle the issue and regain your self-esteem. Indeed, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery has found that two-thirds of individuals are disturbed by their double chin, which is why double chin reduction is a popular cosmetic treatment.

For individuals who are anxious about an invasive surgical procedure, Kybella injections provide an alternative that doesn’t mean going under the scalpel. There is only one thing you need to clarify: How long will your results last? Indeed, a surgical procedure offers long-lasting results. Would choosing an injection over a scalpel prove as effective in the long term?



*Individual Results May Vary.

What is Kybella?

There are no two ways about it. Kybella is in the only effective double chin reduction treatment that doesn’t involve invasive surgery. Kybella injections repurpose one of the natural bodily functions, namely breaking down fat as a daily function. The body naturally produces deoxycholic acid to produce energy. The Kybella treatment introduces synthetic deoxycholic acid directly into the chin to help break down the submental fat cells.

Most people will require a number of treatments for successful double chin reduction. Depending on your goals and your chin, you may need, on average, 2 to 4 treatments to reduce chin fat. Our team of certified specialists can help you understand the duration of your double chin reduction treatment.

How Long Will Kybella Last?

The Kybella results are not immediate as it takes time for the body to process the injections and fully eliminate the excess submental fat. However, this doesn’t mean that the results are not long-lasting. Indeed, you can begin to experience double chin reduction within the first 4 to 6 weeks after your first injection. After you will need to complete the full treatment – aka the number of sessions advised by the Colorado Skin & Vein team – to achieve a slim and contoured jawline.

The results with Kybella injections are permanent. However, it is essential to remember that fat cells can reappear in the targeted area if you fail to maintain a healthy diet and weight.

Kybella Benefits and Cost

Kybella is a popular treatment for individuals who want to achieve double chin reduction without any downtime. Indeed, the area can become tender and swollen after the injection, but it doesn’t prevent you from carrying on with your day-to-day activities. The swelling recedes within 1 to 2 weeks after each injection. But unlike with an invasive surgical procedure, there is no need to worry about your stitches, take pain medications, or reduce physical activities.

Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes and costs between $1,200 and $1,800, depending on your needs. Financial support and financing options are available for Colorado Skin & Vein clients.
