If you’re bothered by a double chin, maybe you’ve heard about KYBELLA. At LUX Med Spa in Atlanta, we are very excited to offer KYBELLA injections for women and men who want a nonsurgical option for slimming this common trouble spot. As many of us know, you can be in great shape and still have a double chin, and just a little bit of extra fat in this area can make you look older and heavier. KYBELLA injections target this stubborn fat, streamlining the neck and jawline for a slimmer, younger appearance.
Benefits of Choosing a Platinum Plus Provider
Our practice has achieved Platinum Plus status from Allergan, the maker of BOTOX, JUVÉDERM, and KYBELLA products. Only about 3% of providers in the U.S. achieve this status, which is based on the volume of Allergan products used. This means our injectors have an extremely high level of experience using these products, and that we have earned a reputation as a trusted provider. Additionally, here at Buckhead Plastic Surgery, our status earns us special pricing on Allergan products, which translates to savings for you.
At LUX Med Spa at Buckhead Plastic Surgery, our team of aesthetic specialists would love to answer your questions about KYBELLA. Request a consultation online to learn more about this and other nonsurgical treatments, or call us at(404) 205-8701 to schedule an appointment.
How Does KYBELLA Work?
KYBELLA contains deoxycholic acid — a chemical that naturally occurs in the body. Its job is to help with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When it is injected into fatty tissue just below the chin, it dissolves fat cells, which your body then eliminates through natural metabolic processes. KYBELLA is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction which removes fat in a single procedure but requires incisions and anesthesia. Because KYBELLA isn’t a skin tightening treatment, it’s important that your skin has good elasticity so that it adheres to the new contours of your neck. Patients with lax skin may want to consider a PrecisionTX™ laser treatment to create a more defined jaw line.

Your KYBELLA Procedure
When you arrive at LUX Med Spa at Buckhead Plastic Surgery, our first priority is to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed. Our master injector customizes a treatment plan based on a physical examination of your neck and the cosmetic goals you describe. Fat below the chin — called submental fat — accumulates for a number of reasons. In many cases the men and women we treat with KYBELLA are in good shape but are genetically prone to developing a double chin.
Your injector begins the procedure by marking specific injections sites in a grid-like pattern. A topical anesthetic is applied before the injections to help you remain comfortable throughout the treatment. A treatment session includes multiple injections to get the desired results. Because our injector customizes each treatment, the number of injections varies from patient to patient. Between 20 and 30 injections is fairly typical.
Because KYBELLA works by gradually destroying fat cells, you won’t notice results immediately after the treatment. Most patients require more than 1 treatment session and optimal results typically occur after 2 to 4 treatments. Sessions are scheduled at least a month apart. Swelling is expected in the first several days after the injections, along with some mild discomfort that can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Each patient’s experience is unique and swelling may last longer in some cases.
