Kybella in Princeton, New Jersey

Are you tired of your double chin? This stubborn area is often resistant to diet and exercise — even for those who are very fit — but with Dr. Hazen’s help, you can achieve a slimmer, more attractive neck and profile. Kybella™ treatments remove submental (under the chin) fullness without surgery or excessive downtime.

Why is Kybella so popular?

  • No anesthesia, incisions, or recovery
  • Fat under chin is eliminated
  • More sculpted neck and profile
  • FDA-approved and safe
  • Minimally invasive treatment

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable designed to reduce under-chin fat over the course of several treatments, with only minimal downtime. Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a substance that is found naturally within the body.

This substance breaks down fat cells, and when Kybella is injected into targeted areas, the fat cells begin to dissipate. In the weeks following treatment, patients will see a gradual reduction of the under-chin fat.

Kybella treatment details

Patients may require a series of Kybella treatments in order to fully eliminate the fat underneath their chin. During your consultation with Dr. Hazen, she will discuss how many treatments you will need. On the day of your Kybella treatment, a topical anesthetic will be used to keep you comfortable. The treatment will be administered, which includes approximately 10 to 50 injections. Treatment time is typically about 10 minutes, and then you will be wrapped in a compression bandage. Unlike most dermal fillers, Kybella does not require touch-up treatments after final results are achieved.  

Candidates for Kybella

If you’re in the Princeton, New Jersey area and you’re interested in Kybella, it may be the ideal treatment for your aesthetic goals. Individuals who make good Kybella candidates are those who:

  • Are not obese
  • Are over the age of 18
  • Are bothered by their under-chin fat
  • Have good skin quality with relative firmness
  • Understands Kybella is not a treatment for weight loss
  • Have realistic expectations for the treatment

Recovery and results 

Kybella treatments require minimal downtime, with some patients requiring a maximum of two days of recovery prior to resuming normal activities. Like most injectable treatments, there may be some swelling, bruising, or itching at the injection site, but these typically subside within three days. Your results from Kybella will be permanent, as the fat cells will be completely destroyed and will not return.
