Kybella® and Facial Contouring

One of the most common facial complaints amongst aging patients is the development of a double chin. As the face ages, fat shifts downward and skin elasticity reduces, creating fullness and the appearance of a second chin. Such aging-related changes like these are to be expected, but modern treatments provide many options for retaining a youthful facial appearance. Perceptions Aesthetic Spa offers Kybella®, an innovative, non-surgical injectable treatment that can significantly reduce submental fullness.

What Is Kybella®?

Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment option to help reduce submental fullness, or excess fat under the chin without a surgical neck lift, facelift, or liposuction. Kybella® uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps break down fat, injected into the treatment area to help create a more contoured jawline.

Your First Kybella Treatment: What to Expect


Clients new to Kylbella® at Perceptions Aesthetic Spa require a consultation to discuss your goals and examine your face to make sure that it is an effective facial contouring option for you prior to treatment. We’ll discuss the risks and benefits of treatment and can suggest complementary or alternative methods if applicable. You are welcome to ask questions and express any concerns that you may have.


We will begin by numbing the area beneath the chin. This numbing compound helps keep you comfortable as the solution is injected. Your specialist will carefully examine the area under your chin to pinpoint the best injection locations.

After the skin is numb, Kybella® is injected into the treatment area with several small injections, evenly spaced across the treatment zone. Each injection is quick, and since the site has been numbed, most patients feel little to no discomfort.


Patients can leave our office shortly after their final injection. Most patients will experience swelling, accompanied by bruising and numbness after their treatment.  Since every patient is unique, treatment timelines can vary, however most patients require several Kybella® treatments spaced at least one month apart.  Kybella® results can typically be seen within 4-6 weeks of the first treatment,  and the results often last for years. We expect that most patients will enjoy a permanent change in their appearance. 

Recovery After Kybella®

Since Kybella® is non-surgical and minimally invasive, recovery progresses quickly for most patients. Swelling is common, especially the first few days after treatment. Most of the swelling should resolve within a couple of days, but some residual swelling can remain for up to two weeks. You can return to work and daily activities as soon as you’re ready. Most patients miss a couple of days of work and many patients who schedule their appointment early on a Friday can often return to work by Monday.

We’ll provide complete recovery instructions and are available if you have any questions as you heal.
