Say goodbye to your double chin now!

Dr. Divers is proud to be the first certified Kybella® injector in the Roanoke, Virginia area.

Kybella® is the first FDA-approved injectable medication to treat moderate to severe submental (under the chin) fat, also known as “double chin.” Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring bile acid in the gastrointestinal tract where it functions to digest fat.

The procedure is quick and easy for patients with a mild sensation of heat and tingling during injection. You can expect some redness and swelling after treatment for a few days to weeks which indicates that the treatment is working.

Patients on average need 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart depending on degree of adipose tissue (fat) and final result desired. The result is permanent.

How long will results last?

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those fat cells no longer exist and therefore cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA® will not be needed as long as weight is not gained.

How does Kybella® work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Are you a candidate for Kybella®?

Kybella® is an excellent choice for patients who:

  • Are bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
  • Feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • Who don’t want to have surgery
  • Who eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
