KYBELLA ® is an FDA approved, prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
- Ideal if fat under the chin, or submental fullness, is an insecurity you’ve dealt with.
- Submental fullness can make you feel heavier or older than you are
- Minimally invasive, multiple small injections under the chin
- You have tried diet and exercise, but submental fullness didn’t persist

Disclaimer: unlike many of our procedures, KYBELLA® has a longer downtime, After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Every patient’s recovery looks different, but the downtime allows healing and produces optimal results.
Dysport & Botox
BOTOX® and DYSPORT are neurotoxins. They work beneath the surface and temporarily minimizes the underlying muscle activity that causes unwanted lines and wrinkles to help the skin look visibly smoother. Many factors contribute to unwanted facial lines, such as inevitable aging, the reduction of collagen production and sun damage. However, eliminating repeated muscle contractions caused by facial expressions is imperative when looking to achieve a more youthful appearance. Results may become visible between 24 and 48 hours and may last longer than 4 months. Like any cosmetic treatment, results vary from patient to patient. Your treatment plan is customized to you based on your results and aesthetic goals.
- Eliminate or lessen unwanted facial lines and wrinkles
- Treat drooping brows
- May reduce migraine pain and TMJ
- Can treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the hands and underarms

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years.
Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by our trained specialist.
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.
Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.
As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production.
Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
How does KYBELLA® work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How long will results last?
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
