Utah's Leading Kybella Injectors

Get rid of your double chin without surgery! Kybella is a revolutionary, non-surgical treatment that offers a solution for achieving a sleeker, more defined jawline and neckline. Say goodbye to insecurities and hello to a refined, elegant profile with Kybella. Explore how this innovative procedure can help you feel confident in your own skin.

What is Kybella?

KYBELLA is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.

When injected into subcutaneous fat in the treatment area (under the chin), KYBELLA permanently destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Fat cleated from the treatment area is processed through natural metabolic mechanisms.

In clinical studies 79% of patients treated with KYBELLA had improved satisfaction with the appearance of their face and area beneath their chin 12 weeks after last treatment.


Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Kybella?

A good candidate for Kybella treatment is typically an individual who has mild to moderate facial volume loss, skin laxity, or wrinkles and is seeking a non-surgical solution to rejuvenate their appearance. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the treatment. Kybella is suitable for most skin types and tones and can be used to treat a variety of areas, including the cheeks, temples, jawline, and chin. However, individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have an active infection or skin condition in the treatment area, or have a history of keloid scarring may not be suitable candidates for Kybella treatment. A consultation with a qualified provider can help determine if Kybella is the right treatment option for an individual's specific concerns and goals.

Are you interested in filling in a few wrinkles and want something that will last more than a few months?

Kybella is a newer generation filler, FDA approved. It is commonly used for facial contouring and filling wrinkles, such as the “smile” wrinkles running from the edge of the nose to the mouth. Some have called Kybella a liquid face lift because the results are so dramatic. However, with Kybella, results don’t come immediately. They develop over 4-6 weeks, but they can last 24 months or more, much longer than other fillers. When injected, Kybella has a mild inflammatory effect that stimulates your body to produce collagen. This collagen production is what makes your skin look younger and also what makes the results last.
Kybella is made of polylactic acid, which is the synthetic version of lactic acid, a chemical our bodies produce naturally when we exercise. Polylactic acid has been used for over 20 years in various surgical products, including dissolvable stitches. Because Kybella is made synthetically, the risk of an allergic reaction is minimal—another benefit.


How many treatments are required?

  • On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your specialist.Learn more about how Kybella Aesthetic works here.

Is Kybella Aesthetic safe? What are the side effects?

Kybella Aesthetic is FDA approved in the United States and has been used worldwide since 1999. Kybella Aesthetic is made of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid that is absorbed naturally by the body and has been used for years in dissolvable stitches.

Since Kybella Aesthetic does not contain any human or animal components, no allergy testing is needed prior to treatments.

Side effects reported include injection site pain, redness, bruising, tenderness, itching and lumps, bleeding or swelling. Small bumps under the skin can sometimes be noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, with or without inflammation, have also been reported.

The types and duration of side effects may vary. If you are experiencing side effects, talk to your doctor.

Please read our Safety & Side Effects section, as well as our complete Important Safety Information.


Kybella is administered under the skin with a fine gauge needle. It is a liquid that can be combined with a pain killer if necessary. Some people feel some pain; others do not. After the injection, the doctor will massage the area to distribute the liquid. You can expect some mild redness and swelling afterward, but it should go away within a day or two. You can apply ice to reduce swelling.


The recovery process from Kybella treatment is typically mild and straightforward. Following the procedure, patients may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising in the treated area. These side effects typically resolve within a few days, and patients can resume normal activities shortly after the treatment. It is important to avoid exposure to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures for at least 24 hours following the procedure, and patients should avoid strenuous exercise or activities that may increase blood flow to the treatment area for at least 24 hours. Patients may experience gradual improvement in the treated area over several weeks as Kybella stimulates the body's natural collagen production. The effects of Kybella can last up to two years or more, and maintenance treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results. Overall, the recovery process from Kybella treatment is typically well-tolerated, with minimal downtime and few side effects. Patients should follow their provider's aftercare instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results.

Kybella Results

How soon will I see results?

Kybella Aesthetic is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last more than two years.* Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. The Kybella Aesthetic regimen delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over a few months. Because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle yet noticeable results in reducing facial wrinkles and folds by comparing images before treatment and a couple of months following treatment.

**See What to expect after treatment for more information.

*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Clinical trial ended at 25 months. **Safety and effectiveness of Kybella Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds.


Your results will develop slowly over 4-6 weeks as your body produces collagen. Your doctor will look at your results after about 4 weeks and then will decide how many other injections you need, if any. Results can last 2 years or more.
