Kybella Dallas-Fort Worth | Botox Bar
Adipose tissue (fat)—for the most part—is evenly distributed across the body. However, when losing weight, due to genetics and medical factors, sometimes small pockets of fat can stick around in certain areas while others will shrink accordingly. This is commonly seen under the chin. Colloquially known as a “double chin,” this is fairly common in adults of all ages. Traditionally, liposuction or temporary solutions were the only way to address submental fat. Kybella is now a completely non-surgical way to remove fat under the chin. Botox Bar offers the best Kybella Dallas-Fort Worth provides.
Overview: What Is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid. A bile acid found naturally in the body, deoxycholic acid helps naturally break up fat in the body. Therefore, when injected underneath the chin, it can help target the fat in the submental area specifically. It begins to absorb and destroy the fat cells over the next few weeks.
Unfortunately, there is no at-home way to lose only certain fat. If you lose weight, it evenly comes off the body. However, due to disproportionate fat deposits or genetics, even after losing weight or remaining thin, patients will still carry extra fat under the chin. This is why Kybella is useful for addressing small and disproportionate pockets of fat.
The injections require no incisions and take less than 20 minutes. In general, there are few side effects or risks associated with Kybella injections.
Before and After Kybella
Causes Of Submental Fat
Submental fat—as briefly touched on above—is often a genetic or biological condition. If you lose weight, you should lose it under the chin. However, due to more than average build-up of fat under the chin, even when you are at a healthy weight or thin, you may still carry the appearance of a “double chin.” Diet and exercise will not automatically get rid of chin fat. If you live a healthy lifestyle, but have not seen a reduction in submental fullness, this may mean you are a good Kybella candidate.
Several factors can contribute to carrying extra fat under the chin, some of which include:
- Genetic predisposition
- Frequent or quick weight fluctuations
- Weight gain
- Poor posture
- Medical conditions such as Cushing’s disease, thyroid issues, or metabolic disorders
Kybella only treats the excess fat below the skin. However, it is often combined with skin tightening procedures.
Kybella offers patients many benefits, especially when compared to alternative procedures.
Some of the benefits of double chin treatment with Kybella include:
- Reduction in submental fat
- Helps contour the jawline
- Promotes a thinner appearance overall
- Aids in creating a more youthful look
- Enhances facial profile
- Non-surgical treatment
- Uses acid found naturally in the body
- Few side effects
- No required recovery
- Minimal aftercare
- Quick procedure
- Fairly painless
- Viable for adult patients of all ages
- Performed by a qualified and skilled injector
The exact benefits will vary based on the amount of fat present, the number of sessions a patient undergoes, and how their body responds to the treatment. Some patients may require more sessions than others to see the results they hope for. Your injector can help advise on this during a consultation appointment.

The Kybella Injection Process From Start To Finish
The first step to undergoing Kybella injections is to schedule a consultation with an injector at Botox Bar. This consultation will allow your injector to determine if you are a good candidate for Kybella, if it is the best treatment based on your goals and anatomy, and create an injection plan. If you are a good candidate, this appointment may also include your first Kybella session.
As part of the consultation, your injector may ask about your medical history, goals, and an examination of the skin and fat. This will allow your injector to determine if Kybella will provide the results you are looking for.
Kybella consists of multiple injections underneath the chin. While you are laying back, your injector will apply a stencil that maps out the injection sites. There are roughly fifty injections across the entire area of the chin. These injections are not overly painful and quick. A strong numbing ointment is applied.
Each session takes between fifteen and twenty minutes. It is customized to each patient based on their anatomy. Patients sometimes feel a slight burning sensation during and after treatment. This is perfectly normal.
The exact aftercare instructions are generally minimal. As a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure, patients can immediately return to work and most of their daily activities. Most aftercare directions your injector will give you are meant for the day of treatment. Some of the possible instructions include:
- Avoid strenuous exercise for about 24 hours (anything that may cause profuse sweating)
- Do not touch or massage the area
- Elevate your head slightly when lying down
- Only take Tylenol for lasting soreness
- Limit alcohol and caffeine
- Stay hydrated
For some patients, one session of Kybella may provide adequate results. Ultimately, it depends on the amount of fat present and how the patient’s body responds in the weeks after treatment. Kybella works by bursting the fat cells and then taking advantage of the body’s metabolism to clear the dead fat cells. Therefore, depending on how the body responds, it can take a couple of sessions to see the results wanted.
On average, patients undergo two to four sessions of Kybella to see their desired results. At your consultation and after your first session, your injector can better estimate how many sessions you may need.
Yes, once the fat cells burst and the body clears them, they will not come back. However, like with liposuction treatment, remaining fat cells can still expand if you gain weight. Therefore, you should continue to live a healthy lifestyle after Kybella injections.
Sometimes Kybella is used on the bra roll area. It is currently only FDA approved to treat submental fat. However, studies do continue and it will likely receive future approvals to treat other small treatment areas. For larger areas, liposuction or other non-surgical procedures continue to be more effective.
The body usually takes between four and six weeks to clear out the treated fat cells. Though, it can take up to eight weeks. Unlike other injectable treatments, there are no immediate results. Your injector will likely want to evaluate your results after four to six weeks and possibly perform another round of injections.
Kybella at Botox Bar starts at $799 per session. This also includes your free in-person or virtual consultation. Botox Bar does work with Care Credit to offer outside financing for your Kybella treatments.
