what is Kybella?
Even a bit of extra fat in the upper neck area will cause the presence of a "double chin" that can be unwanted. The additional pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging that lead to a softer chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Our El Paso, TX team is proud to provide a new method to eliminate neck fat at SkinSational MedSpa. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid that works similarly to the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it is injected beneath the chin, you may see a visible decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells do not regenerate so you are able to enjoy your new, slimmer neck and defined jawline for years to come.
What are the benefits of getting Kybella?
Our El Paso, TX patients who get KYBELLA regularly talk about a number of benefits this procedure gives them, such as:
- Nonsurgical alternative to liposuction or more intensive options
- Use of organic resources found in your body to stimulate natural collagen production
- Long-lasting results with typically little need for further medical attention
- Smoother, younger-looking jawline that boosts confidence and appearance

Am I a Good Candidate for KYBELLA Injections?
Ideal candidates for KYBELLA injections at SkinSational MedSpa have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area) that causes unwanted fullness or a double chin. This injection addresses resistant sections of fat that can't be minimized with usual weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but diet and exercise have not been able to remove the fat in your neck, KYBELLA may be the right procedure for your goals. While KYBELLA can be used to reduce small or moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger pockets of fat may require surgical neck liposuction or another procedure.
How is kybella performed?
If you are at a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to eliminate the fat in your neck, KYBELLA may be the correct option for your needs. KYBELLA is done during an in-office appointment. Our team will generally apply a numbing ointment to the treated area if desired after the skin is cleaned. The procedure lasts around 15 – 20 minutes, which comprises of several small injections into the upper neck area. Some patients may require one treatment to achieve their desired look while other patients may want a few treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks between each appointment at SkinSational MedSpa. Injections of KYBELLA don't need anesthesia so you can leave our office as soon as you are comfortable to resume your normal activities. You may notice temporary bruising, numbness, or swelling under your chin, but this shouldn't last more than 2 – 3 days. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck looking tighter and sleeker, and your profile will be better defined.
What Can I Expect After A KYBELLA Injection?
Injections of KYBELLA don't require anesthesia, so you are able to leave the office as soon as you are ready to return to your daily routine. You may experience temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness below your chin, but this should not last more than a few days. Call SkinSational MedSpa immediately if you are noticing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat cells that are eliminated do not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger, so you should maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA injections to prevent new pockets of fat from developing. Optimal results after this treatment leave your neck appearing sleeker and slimmer and your neckline will be more defined.
Should I get KYBELLA or liposuction?
As you are probably aware, KYBELLA is widely successful in reducing submental fullness or the appearance of a double chin. While liposuction can also remove fat to improve this area, it does involve a more invasive approach and a lengthy recovery. The specialists at SkinSational MedSpa can help each patient determine their best treatment plan.
Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas?
KYBELLA is only FDA-approved for the chin and upper neck areas. If you have concerns about the appearance of other places, such as the brows, cheeks, or lips, our aesthetic team can recommend other safe and effective procedures or injections. Our goal is to make sure you have the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
Is KYBELLA permanent?
Once KYBELLA damages fat cells in the submental area, they are gone for good. However, KYBELLA patients in El Paso, TX, should keep a steady weight after the procedure to prevent fullness in other areas. We also recommend that patients maintain their normal dietary and exercise habits.
