KYBELLA in San Diego & Carlsbad

Did you know that over 2/3 of people are bothered by a double chin (submental fullness)? If you’re one of the many who are frustrated with excess fat under your chin, there’s good news! You can redefine your neck contour nonsurgically with KYBELLA double chin injections, available in our La Jolla and Carlsbad medical spa locations for men and women from San Diego, Encinitas, Oceanside, San Marcos, and beyond.

KYBELLA is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that effectively reduces submental fullness without surgery or anesthesia and with little to no downtime, making it a fantastic alternative to more invasive procedures.

Am I a Good Candidate for KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is a wonderful option for almost anyone hoping to refine their jawline and upper neck. It’s best to consult with a knowledgeable, board-certified plastic surgeon, but good candidates generally:

  • Would like to reduce the appearance of a double chin.
  • Aren’t quite ready for neck liposuction or don’t require more extensive reshaping.
  • Are interested in trying a minimally invasive alternative.
  • Are in generally good health.

Here at LJC, we’re all about beautiful, safe results—and it’s important to be honest with your provider about any underlying medical conditions or lifestyle habits that could impact your results or make it difficult for you to heal around the injection sites.

How Does KYBELLA Work?

KYBELLA is FDA approved for the safe and effective treatment of excess fat under the chin. The main component of KYBELLA is a non-human/non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in your body to help absorb and break down dietary fat. When injected directly into moderate to severe pockets of fat cells under your chin, KYBELLA destroys the cells and prevents them from storing or accumulating fat in the future.

With KYBELLA, you’ll see dramatic results after just a few short treatments—without a long recovery period, discomfort, or obvious side effects. In studies, KYBELLA has shown high patient satisfaction rates: Almost 80% of people were thrilled with the improved appearance of their face and chin and reported an improvement in confidence!

What Should I Expect During a KYBELLA Treatment?

During your treatment session, your provider will precisely and thoughtfully inject KYBELLA into the troublesome fat under your chin. You may feel a very slight stinging sensation during the initial injection, but your overall treatment should be comfortable. Your appointment should take no longer than 30 minutes.

Enjoy Pain-Free KYBELLA Injections With PRO-NOX™

You deserve a comfortable experience, so we now offer PRO-NOX as an add-on during KYBELLA and other medical spa services.

What Is PRO-NOX?

PRO-NOX is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.

Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX takes effect in seconds but wears off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.

Ask us about adding PRO-NOX to your treatment at your consultation!

Our Promises To You

What Is KYBELLA Recovery Like?

After your treatment, it’s normal to experience some bruising, swelling, redness, or tenderness around the injection sites for the first few days. You may also have some numbness or firmness around the treated area, but these effects are temporary and completely normal. Many people report that their side effects are less intense with each subsequent treatment.

How Many KYBELLA Treatments Will I Need?

After you and your surgeon have determined that KYBELLA is a great option for you, we’ll schedule you for a series of up to 6 treatments, spaced at least a month apart. Most people are happy with their results after just 2 to 4 treatments.

How Much Does KYBELLA Cost in San Diego?

At our La Jolla and Carlsbad locations, the cost of KYBELLA injections varies depending on the amount of product and number of injections needed. We’ll provide a detailed, individualized price quote at your consultation. Get all the info you need about costs on our pricing page.

LJC is happy to accept payments through several affordable financing plans. Learn more on our financing page.

Have more questions about KYBELLA? We have answers!

Q: Who performs KYBELLA injections?

A: Kythera, the makers of KYBELLA, have implemented a training program to educate physicians and their staff on the safe and approved usage of KYBELLA—and only trained providers can purchase KYBELLA and administer treatment.

All of our medical spa providers perform KYBELLA injections.

In addition to specialized training for KYBELLA, our team is experienced in injectable treatments of all types and brings an advanced understanding of facial anatomy to their treatment techniques.

Q: Is KYBELLA safe?

A: KYBELLA gained FDA approval for treating submental fullness in the spring of 2015, so it has a solid track record. Here’s what you need to know:

  • KYBELLA is approved for fat reduction only under the chin.
  • KYBELLA is the only FDA-approved injectable for treating a double chin.
  • Physicians must complete KYBELLA training programs before they can offer treatment.
  • KYBELLA is indicated for the improvement of moderate to severe fullness under the chin.

Q: What other options do I have for treating neck and chin fat?

A: If you’re thinking about changing the contour of your neck and chin, LJC has many options for you.

KYBELLA joins Ultherapy® and CoolMini® as nonsurgical options, and ThermiRF is a great minimally invasive skin tightening treatment. For more dramatic re-contouring of the neck, surgical options include submental liposuction or neck lifts.
