Submental fullness, frequently referred to as a double chin, is a condition in which excess fat accumulates underneath the chin.
This common concern is not always only related to weight; it can appear and persist despite diet and exercise routines. At Pryor Health Medspa & Wellness Center, we help our Chicago clientele combat submental fullness with Kybella. Schedule a consultation with us today to discover if Kybella is right for you!

Kybella is a unique injectable treatment designed to resolve a double chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a substance produced naturally by the body to metabolize dietary fat. When used in an injection to the submental area, it destroys the excess fat cells which compose your double chin.
Treatment will begin with a consultation, during which you will have the chance to discuss your questions and concerns and find out if Kybella is the best treatment for you.
Each session of injections typically take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. The number of treatments you will need depends on a number of factors such as the severity of submental fullness and your end aesthetic goals. Frequently patients need up to six treatment sessions spaced about a month apart to achieve optimal results.
As an effective, non-surgical treatment, Kybella comes with a wide array of benefits, including:
After the excess fat cells are broken down, they are naturally eliminated by the body. Clients typically begin to see their results in three to six weeks of their treatment, after which they can continue to see further improvement over the course of the next few months.
Patients who maintain a stable weight may never have to deal with submental fullness again since Kybella permanently destroys the fat cells in the treated area.
Most healthy adults make good candidates for Kybella as long as they do not have any sort of infection in the treatment area.
During your consultation, be sure to discuss any medications you are taking with our aesthetic specialists, particularly if you are taking any blood thinners as they can interfere with the results of Kybella treatment.
Mild side effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness are common and generally resolve themselves within a few days. Side effects are most frequently minor enough that the patient will not need to spend any time in recovery.
Anyone who has had to deal with a double chin understands the difficulties involved with trying to get rid of it. Kybella could be your answer.
