Eliminate your double chin
If you suffer from a double chin, you know what it’s like to wince every time you catch a glimpse of your profile in the mirror or in photographs. Excess submental fat, or double chins, can be the result of aging, weight fluctuations, or even genetics and can be difficult, if not impossible, to eliminate with diet and exercise.
Kybella® is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical injectable treatment to contour the chin and eliminate excess fat. The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps break down and eliminate unwanted fat cells. Patients who turn to Medical Aesthetics & Laser for Kybella in The Woodlands can expect to achieve a much more flattering silhouette after a series of 3 to 6 treatment sessions.

How it Works
Kybella is an injectable, synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance already found in your body’s digestive system. This molecule helps break down fats. When injected below the chin, Kybella directly targets the stubborn fat deposits that give you a double chin, destroying these cells forever and giving you a substantially tighter, more contoured jaw.
When given in a series of 3-6 treatments spaced a month apart, with 12-20 injections per visit, patients see results that last for years, with little to no need for touch-up treatments.
Before your appointment for Kybella in The Woodlands, it is important to:
- Avoid the use of blood thinning medications and supplements like aspirin, ibuprofen, gingko biloba, garlic oil, flax oil, fish oil, Vitamin A and E, and any other essential fatty acids for a week before and after treatment to minimize the risk of bleeding or bruising. If you are taking these medications under direction of a physician, you should consult with them before discontinuing use.
- Reschedule your appointment if you develop a cold, flu, infection, blemish, or rash in the area to be treated prior to your appointment.
- If you have a history of Dysphagia or difficulty swallowing, please notify your specialist.
After we have treated your double chin with Kybella in The Woodlands, we suggest:
- Apply cold compresses to the treatment area for 10-15 minutes as needed for swelling and redness.
- Avoid strenuous activity for at least 3 days after your injections.
- Do not scratch, pick, or disrupt the area in any way. Do not massage or manipulate the injection site either.
The services that you have provided for me are beyond excellent. The staff and technicians have provided the best treatments and care that I have ever received. The environment that has been created in your office is warm, friendly and very comfortable. When I go for an appointment AL and the staff has a way of making me feel special. They take their time and they want to make sure that you are happy with the results.
Recently, at my annual appointment with the dermatologist, I was so very impressed and pleased. The Dr. commented on how great I was taking care of my skin. He had no idea that Allison and Kelli were taking care of my skin, I was just following their instructions with the regime they had advised! There are no professionals, or places, that I could more highly recommend than Allison and Kelli at Medical Aesthetics and Laser. My intent here is to pay it forward, just as my friend did, by her recommendation of Allison to me.
I have been going to Kalya at Medical Aesthetics and Laser for about 2 years. Kalya is extremely complete and thorough in delivering not only excellent customer service but in her knowledge of the skin and what treatments are needed to get results for a beautiful and younger appearance. Medical Aesthetics and Laser rocks. I would never go anywhere else.
Medical Aesthetics and Laser is wonderful. Since they are associated with a physician’s office they have a fantastic array of product and service choices. Kelli's knowledge and professionalism is unsurpassed. The office staff is welcoming and courteous- always giving each client the time that is needed.
Your specialist at Medical Aesthetics & Laser will create a treatment plan that is designed to best meet your goals. The number of treatments required depends on your unique chin profile, the level of improvement desired, and how well your body responds to the treatment.
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
Kybella has been studied and proven safe and effective for treating only the chin area. Medical Aesthetics & Laser, in compliance with the FDA, uses Kybella to treat the submental area only. If you are interested in eliminating excess fat on your body, contact us about potentially starting a regimen of CoolSculpting treatments!
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
Treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs. Your Medical Aesthetics & Laser specialist will provide you with the exact cost of your Kybella injections up front in your initial consultation. We can also accept CareCredit to cover the cost of your treatment.
