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.
"I have never really been one to place great care on my skin, which was all fine and dandy in my early 20s, but having just scratched the surface into my 30s, I knew it was high-time to start investing in my skin. After seeing incredible results with Jordan from a laser hair removal Groupon last year, I decided to call upon her for my skin. My first appointment was such a great experience! Beforehand, I was feeling a little embarrassed about the lack of skin care in my past, but Jordan listened without judgement and made me feel so comfortable. I have always had dry skin and thought that buying products for "normal to dry skin" was the best thing for me, but after that first appointment, I walked away with a much better understanding that dry skin can mean sensitive skin, so the exfoliants I was using was actually making my skin worse. AH! I have only been seeing her a few short months, but I can already see such a difference. I didn't even realize how dull my skin was looking before meeting with Jordan. The dry, wrinkled-looking skin that I had just come to expect when looking in the mirror is starting to look smooth and shiny. Not to mention, when the pandemic has let up and allowed brief glimpses at a normal life, I haven't been wearing foundation while going out because the coloring of my skin is the most even it has ever been (take that, early-20s me!) I cannot recommend LPA enough and, in particular, I cannot recommend Jordan enough! If you want to look your best, it is 100% worth the investment."- A.J. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
"I’ve been going back and forth on getting botox for a while. After talking to LPA’s newest injector, Julia Kocemba, I decided to finally go for it and I’m so happy I did!This was my first time receiving injectables and the appointment couldn’t have gone any smoother! Julia answered all of my first-timer questions [yes, there were a lot of them] with great detail and patience. By the time I was ready to be injected, I felt knowledgeable and confident in the process and type of treatments I was about to receive. Throughout the entirety of the appointment, I felt safe and knew I was in the best hands with Julia!I LOVE my results and have been recommending Julia to everyone! I already have my next treatment scheduled and I will continue to reach out to her with any other derm/aesthetics questions I have. Go see Julia!!!!"- A.H. / Yelp / Nov 23, 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. / Google / Oct 24, 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
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.
