Kybella Double Chin Reduction for Men in Rancho Cucamonga

Our experienced providers can help slim your jawline and highlight your masculine features with a few expertly placed injections of Kybella.

As the first FDA-cleared, minimally invasive treatment for excess fat under the chin, Kybella® has become a popular option for men hoping to look a bit sharper. A double chin, also known as “submental fullness,” is a common problem that many feel self-conscious about—in fact, according to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, a whopping 68% of consumers are bothered by this problem area.

Toning the jawline is notoriously tricky, particularly since it’s not always just a matter of being overweight. The natural toll of aging, weight fluctuation over the years, and even your genes can all determine whether or not you’ll have a double chin or a naturally sleek jaw. But now, thanks to Allergan’s Kybella double chin treatment, you don’t have to just accept it.

Why we love Kybella at our Rancho Cucamonga med spa

Kybella offers a non-surgical alternative to liposuction or neck contouring. It is administered by injection directly into the fat below the chin over the course of a few treatment sessions, reducing bulk and helping you to look younger, healthier, and more chiseled.

Kybella is formulated with a synthesized deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that assists your body in fat absorption. After a series of Kybella treatments, the fat under your chin is melted, absorbed, and naturally flushed out of your body as waste—and because the targeted fat cells are actually destroyed, Kybella offers a long-lasting solution.

  • Reduced Double Chin: Kybella effectively reduces the appearance of a double chin, leading to a more defined and contoured jawline, which is often associated with masculine aesthetics.
  • Non-Surgical: Kybella offers a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures like liposuction for chin fat reduction, appealing to those seeking less invasive options.
  • Minimal Downtime: Compared to surgery, Kybella typically requires less downtime, allowing men to return to work and other activities more quickly.
  • Permanent Fat Reduction: The deoxycholic acid in Kybella permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area, which then can no longer store or accumulate fat, leading to long-lasting results.
  • Improved Facial Profile: By reducing submental fullness, Kybella can enhance a man’s side profile and overall facial balance.
  • Quick Procedure: Each treatment session is relatively fast, usually completed in about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Customizable Treatment: The amount of Kybella used can be tailored to meet individual needs based on the amount of fat present and the desired outcome.
  • FDA-Approved: Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment, which adds a level of assurance regarding its safety and efficacy.
  • Chin Lipo (Chin Liposuction): A surgical procedure to remove fat from under the chin, often compared with Kybella, which is a non-surgical alternative.
  • Deoxycholic Acid: The active ingredient in Kybella, this naturally occurring molecule helps break down and absorb dietary fat.
  • Double Chin: Also known as submental fullness, this refers to excess fat beneath the chin, the main target for Kybella treatment.
  • FDA Approval: The certification by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that Kybella is safe and effective for treating submental fullness.
  • Injection Site: The area under the chin where Kybella is injected to target and reduce fat.
  • Kybella: A non-surgical injectable treatment used specifically to reduce fat under the chin.
  • Non-Surgical: Referring to treatments that do not involve surgical incisions; Kybella is a non-invasive procedure for reducing chin fat.

  • Recovery Time: The period required for recovery post-Kybella injections, usually involving minimal downtime.
  • Submental Area: The region under the chin, which is the focus of Kybella injections.
  • Synthetic: Describes man-made substances; Kybella’s deoxycholic acid is synthetic but mimics a naturally occurring molecule.
  • Units: A measurement used to quantify the amount of Kybella injected, with the specific number of units tailored to the individual’s treatment needs.

What are Kybella injections like?

Like other injectable treatments, Kybella is considered a minimally invasive option. During your treatment, we will strategically mark the areas under your chin that have pockets of excess fat so we can properly place injections for an optimal result.

To help reduce discomfort, the skin will be numbed prior to treatment. Our patients report that the injections feel like a little pinch; there is some pain, but it’s tolerable. After injections, it’s normal to experience some swelling, slight bruising, and a bit of numbness in the treated area, but these effects should be mild and resolve in a few days.

Kybella is performed right in our comfortable office, without the need for anesthesia. You can resume most normal activities as soon as you leave, though it’s important to take care of the injected area.

You’ll need multiple treatment sessions to see optimal results, and most patients are happy with the outcome after two to six treatments, typically performed about a month apart. Each treatment takes around 15-20 minutes. Results will start to take shape within a few weeks as your body naturally processes and removes the targeted fat cells.
