Kybella injections start at $699 per syringe, depending on the number of units injected and whether there are any SpaMedica specials, deals or promotions on offer.
There is no downtime following Kybella injections.
The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes.
Kybella is an injectable treatment used to destroy fat cells located under the chin. Kybella is a safe chemical, called deoxycholate, that can selectively dissolve fat cells but leave other tissues alone. Kybella is used as a permanent solution for eliminating submental fullness.
Do you have a double chin that won’t go away, no matter how much you restrict calories? Does your double chin make you look older than you are? Does your double chin make you feel self-conscious? If so, Kybella may be right for you.

Kybella is a non-surgical treatment. There is no downtime, and the recovery is fast. People who want results without spending days or weeks recovering love Kybella.
The entire procedure only takes 30 minutes. Patients can get Kybella, and return to their normal lives right after.
Kybella injections destroy the fat cells. Once destroyed, those fat cells cannot return. Those who maintain a proper diet after injections will not require additional treatments.
Patients who receive the required number of injections can expect impressive results. The injection can either greatly reduce or eliminate the double chin. These results boost people’s self-confidence.
Like every procedure, Kybella comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted clinic such as SpaMedica and their experienced Kybella injectors.
Swelling, Pain, and Numbness
Some patients experience swelling, pain, and numbness at the injection site. This is the most common complication and typically goes away on its own. Still, patients who experience this complication should contact SpaMedica.
Nerve injury is a rare but possible complication. Patients who develop this complication will experience facial muscle weakness or an uneven smile.
Injection Site Problems
It’s possible to experience injection site problems following Kybella injections. These problems include ulcers, bruising, and hair loss. Injection site problems differ in degree of severity.
Some patients experience trouble swallowing due to a reaction with Kybella. While this problem normally resolves itself, patients who experience this side effect should contact SpaMedica.

Dr. Mulholland performs or oversees all Kybella injections at SpaMedica. Before the procedure, the doctor or injection RN applies a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to prevent discomfort. Then, the doctor places a transparent grid on the chin to ensure that the dose is evenly distributed throughout the treatment area. Once the grid is in place, the doctor expertly injects Kybella into the chin.
Patients typically come back 4-6 weeks later for another injection. Patients may receive several Kybella injections to reduce the fat under their chins. Dr. Mulholland explains how many injections the patient will need during the consultation.
Because Kybella is a non-invasive procedure, patients don’t need to do much to prepare. However, they do need to:
Patients can expect some swelling following the treatment, but they can return to normal activities immediately. Swelling can last several weeks and can take up to 4-6 weeks to notice the results. The fat continues to dissolve as some patients undergo one additional treatment 6-12 weeks after the first.
Patients leave SpaMedica right after receiving Kybella injections. Patients might experience some swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort for a few days, although the swelling can last up to several weeks. Some patients also experience numbness in the treated area which can last for 2 months. Patients can expect the same timeline for recovery with each injection they receive.
While patients might experience mild discomfort, Kybella injections are not painful. The provider numbs the area with a topical anesthetic cream, as well as laughing gas (nitrous oxide) and the needle is small.
Kybella and deoxycholate have been used for years and is safe for the treatment of double chins in men and women. All procedures carry some risks, though, and Dr. Mulholland will discuss possible complications during the consultation.
No. While patients might experience some swelling and redness, they can resume normal activities immediately following the procedure. Some people choose to stay home for a few days due to the swelling and redness.
The results are gradual after receiving Kybella injections. Most patients notice the results within 4-6 weeks of receiving treatments. Some patients need a second Kybella injection 6-12 weeks after the initial treatment.
Swelling can last up to 2 weeks following a Kybella treatment. The swelling normally peaks at 3 days and begins to dissipate after that, completely going away within 1- 2 weeks.
Patients can take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications to reduce swelling. Also, patients are encouraged to apply ice to the treatment site for the first several days. Sleeping with the head in an upright position also reduces swelling. Patients with lots of swelling can also wear a chinstrap to alleviate the inflammation.
