A double chin (medically known as submental fullness) is a common yet under treated issue that affects facial symmetry. It is caused by an accumulation of fat in the front of the neck and just under the chin, making a person look older and heavier. Submental fullness affects men and women of all ages, and can be influenced by factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. Unfortunately, double chins are extremely resistant to diet and exercise.

Now there is Kybella—the first and only FDA approved double chin injection drug that safely and effectively reduces excess fat under the chin, leaving a smooth and contoured jawline without the necessary recovery time of another double chin fat reduction like liposuction or double chin surgery.

Before & After | Kybella Treatments

“LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! I received my first Kybella treatment a week and a half ago and my first CoolSculpting appointment an hour ago. From consultation to my appointments everyone who works here is so fantastic!!! Rose is phenomenal and so friendly in answering questions, Robert is an easy going and funny guy who knows his stuff, Dr. Lin was super nice and explained exactly what he was doing. The front desk gals are the sweetest. It feels like you are with best friends!

Kybella was virtually painless until the last few injections and even then not horrible. Coolsculpting (I had an overlapping treatment so had 2 hours worth of sitting there getting frozen!) was so relaxing I did not want to leave! They dim the lights, give you snacks and pillows, have ambiant music and flameless candles…I truly could have fallen asleep. The massage afterwards, which I heard is painful, was totally fine to me. I hyped myself up thinking these procedures would hurt but truly it was very pleasant! other than the swelling from Kybella, but that subsided almost completely after 3 days.

I highly recommend setting up a consultation if you are thinking of treating a problem area. They are super sweet, no pressure professionals that will give you all the help you ask for.” *

How Kybella Double Chin Reduction Works

The active ingredient in Kybella double chin injection is identical to deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When the double chin injection is injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. The cells die and are absorbed by your body for reduction.

“I should have posted before as I have been a client since 2006. I have had a monthly membership for 10 years now. My skin has never been better. I look 10 years younger than my age now, thanks to the team at skin and laser. I went in for various reasons, mainly to look younger since I was going through a terrible divorce.

We started from my face to body from microdermabrasion, botox, IPL and laser hair removal (legs and underarm) to cool sculpting and now I am doing my chin, Kybella (trying to say good bye to my double chin). Yvonne and Dr Lin – a perfect combo – helped develop a plan for me to get rid of dark spots and my wrinkles and to my surprise it is working! I am on a skincare regiment bought from the clinic. With the combination of my skincare regiment and with Dr Lin’s help, my skin is near perfect…

I will continue to be a customer for life but I feel that I am no longer a customer, I feel like they are a part of my family. They have seen my worst and I thank them for giving me back my self-esteem, I know that beauty is only skin deep, but this living as a women when people judge so much on appearance, MCSL has helped me move forward in life. I highly recommend this clinic! Thank you, Yvonne and Dr. Lin” *

Kybella is a double chin injection administered directly to the fat pad under the chin using multiple injections. Double chin treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center is one of the top Allergan injectors nationwide.

Dr. Lin was honored to be one of the first in the Seattle market to be trained, certified, and authorized by Allergan to treat with Kybella.

Dr. Lin utilizes his excellent aesthetic judgment, skill level, and thorough understanding of facial anatomy to deliver first-class results. He often combines Botox and/or filler with Kybella for the ultimate liquid facelift. Dr. Lin performs all injectable treatments at Mill Creek Skin & Laser Center.

Kybella is currently only approved for addressing a double chin reduction; however, Kybella may be available for other uses in the near future.

Kybella double chin reduction does not require any recovery time or downtime; most patients can return to their normal activities immediately.

Patients may experience different degrees of swelling as the fat is being dissolved, which is a normal part of the healing process.

There may also be some slight discomfort, erythema (redness) or bruising for a brief period after the double chin injection, which should resolve relatively quickly.

Kybella double chin injection destroys fat cells. Once the aesthetic response is achieved you will not need to be treated with Kybella again.

This will depend on the amount of submental fat you need to lose and your desired chin result. Because everyone is different, a custom double chin treatment plan is tailored for each individual patient.

Many patients will experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments, however some people may require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve desired results. Double chin reduction treatment sessions are spaced about a month apart.

The most common side effects seen with Kybella double chin reduction include bruising, pain, numbness, swelling at the injection site, redness and areas of hardness in the treatment area. These side effects will dissipate gradually.

“Best ever staff. Best ever service .. like family. And, Dr. Lin is a genius in his specialty. He loves to learn, and is always challenging himself to exceed. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my skin care, collagen building, laser, etc.” *
