You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. Sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. Kybella® can help.

Until recently, surgery with anesthesia was the best option for anyone looking to achieve the Holy Grail of the lower-face: sharper jaw, chiseled chin, a more youthful appearance. KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA -approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness or what is more commonly known as the double chin.


Kybella® is an injectable product that is placed directly into the submental fat pocket under the chin. It starts to dissolve the fat cells immediately, resulting in a slimmer chin and tightening of the surrounding tissue. Though treatments are customized for each patient, most people will enjoy visible results after one to two treatments. Full results are seen with an average of four treatments. There is minimal to no downtime, side effects or discomfort and results are permanent.

Veronica Tamaru, RN and her team of medical professionals are among the first in the country to perform the Kybella®​ treatment.

How Kybella® Works

The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic Deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
