What is KYBELLA?
Do you have just a bit of extra fat under your chin causing a "double chin" appearance? You are not alone. Many men and women have fatty pockets in the submental area (below the chin) due to aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations. Reduce your neck fat at Lincoln Park Aesthetics with KYBELLA. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for the reduction of submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid, which acts like the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat. As your body responds and breaks down the fat cells, you should see a noticeable difference. Once the fat is gone, the cells cannot regenerate so you can enjoy your new look. Make an appointment to go over the details of KYBELLA with our team today in Chicago, IL.
Am I a candidate for KYBELLA?
To be a candidate for KYBELLA injections, you need to be healthy and at a stable weight. You may have tried to lose weight to banish your chin fat, but diet and exercise have not worked in the past. You may also have unwanted fullness in the submental area because of genetics. While KYBELLA addresses the mild to moderate pockets of fat in the submental area, larger pockets of fat may require surgical liposuction. We will discuss realistic expectations in your consultation as to what KYBELLA can do for you. Men and women who would like to have KYBELLA injections with us should:
- Be at least 18 years old or older
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
- Be free of any active infection in or around the treatment site
We encourage you to be open about your medical history and health concerns with your injector. This way, we can determine if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction.
"Rachel Schulman was very detailed, responsive, and was great at listening to my concerns. I’m very happy with my results for filler to treat a acne scar, under eye and in my cheeks. Thank you !"- T.H. / Yelp / Jun 12, 2020
"I had a fantastic experience with this office and Dr. Gutoswki. Everything from scheduling through the procedure was great. They were thorough and explained my options very well. I had been putting this surgery off for a long time because I thought it was going to be very uncomfortable but everyone was great. They made the entire process really easy and I would definitely recommend them. I’m really happy with my results."- E.M. / Yelp / Oct 23, 2020
"The team at LPA are so incredibly kind and accommodating. In particular, Jenna M. is incredibly talented with all things aesthetics. She will make you feel your very best - while looking natural, and feeling as if you left a cocoon of care. Her extensive experience, ability to REALLY listen, make sure you are comfortable, and follow up is the gold standard. I can’t recommend her or this clinic more - very special people!"- J.J. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020

"I come here for Jordan’s facials because I love Jordan and she is the reason I never wear makeup anymore AND she cured my skin when I had the most atrocious pores and also a compromised barrier. I would pretty much die for Jordan at this point. This is a medspa so it’s not quite as ~calming~ as a traditional spa but I do get to have more intense peels so it’s kind of worth it."- K.S. / Yelp / Oct 08, 2020
Our Kybella Injection Technique
KYBELLA injections will be performed in one of our private treatment rooms at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. Our aesthetics team will tell you what they are doing every step of the way. If you want to be numbed for the injections, we can apply a topical anesthetic to the area once the skin is clean. KYBELLA injections take about 15 – 20 minutes of your time per session. You can expect multiple injections (made in a grid-like pattern) under your chin. Some patients may only need a single treatment to reach their chin fat reduction goal. Other patients may need multiple injections spaced three weeks apart at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. How your body responds to the treatment will determine how many sessions will be involved with your KYBELLA plan.
What to Expect
Unlike a surgical procedure, KYBELLA does not require anesthesia. We may numb the area for the multiple injections placed in your skin, but that is all that is required. You can leave our office as soon as you feel ready to resume your normal routine. You may experience temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising under your chin, but this should not last more than a couple of days. Call Lincoln Park Aesthetics right away if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, including facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not return, the remaining fat cells can become larger. You should maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatment for a tighter and slimmer neckline.
In your initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be created to meet your needs. Most often, patients have KYBELLA treatments in 2 – 4 sessions before achieving their goals. We will space out your appointments one month apart.
