Kybella® in Oklahoma City
Define Your Profile
The area underneath the chin is a natural place for the body to deposit fat. Many of our clients are not happy with the look of fullness this can cause. Excess fat beneath the chin can be the result of normal weight gain, the aging process, or your own genetics. Even those who live a healthy lifestyle and are at a normal weight can experience a “double chin.”
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.
When Kybella® is injected under the chin, the fat cells are destroyed. Once destroyed, the cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. After the desired effect is achieved, further treatment with Kybella® is not expected. Results are likely to last a lifetime. Patients who turn to Renew Wellness & Aesthetics for Kybella® in Oklahoma City can expect to achieve a much more flattering silhouette.

Recovery & Downtime
There is no required downtime after Kybella® injections. You are free to go back to work or your regular routine after leaving our office. Patients are encouraged to use ice on the treated area after treatment to help with expected swelling and soreness. Patients will see improvement in 4 to 6 weeks, with full results 12 weeks post-treatment.
Why Try Kybella® in Oklahoma City?
While normal, varying levels of diet and exercise may exacerbate or change the profile under the chin, Kybella® ensures that the fat cells underneath the chin are completely destroyed. Once permanently destroyed, the cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. After the desired effect is achieved, further treatment with Kybella® is not expected. Results are likely to last a lifetime.
The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down fat in the body. Kybella® harnesses the power of this molecule already naturally found in the body to reduce, break down, and destroy fat cells, allowing them to be eliminated and flushed out by the body.
Using Kybella® injections to treat your double chin in Oklahoma City will save you significant time, money, and pain versus traditional surgical methods like liposuction.
The Kybella® Process
What to Expect?
At Renew Wellness & Aesthetics, your expert injector will take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have before developing a Kybella® treatment plan to meet your aesthetic and financial needs.
Get Your Kybella® Injections
After applying ice to numb the area, your provider will use a grid to map and mark your targeted injection sites. Your expert injector will administer the appropriate amount of Kybella® into the submental area. Most patients need 12 to 20 injections per treatment.
After your Kybella® treatment, swelling and tenderness is normal and should be treated with ice and Tylenol. Patients can expect swelling to last 3 to 4 days, but it can last up to 2 weeks as the Kybella® works to break down and destroy fat cells. Treatments can be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks.
- 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 the 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.
- Notify your specialist if you have a history of Dysphagia or difficulty swallowing.
- Plan the treatment well before any major events, as swelling is a normal side effect post-treatment.
- Apply ice 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Kybella® and how does it work?
Kybella® utilizes an active ingredient that is naturally produced by the body. This substance breaks down fat and removes it from the body naturally. When Kybella® comes into contact with the fat cells underneath the chin, this active ingredient destroys them. Then, over time, the fat is naturally and permanently eliminated from your body. The result is a more contoured, defined profile which enhances your overall appearance.
Do men get Kybella®?
We routinely see male patients for Kybella® in Oklahoma City to address submental chin fat and to create a stronger, more masculine jawline.
Can Kybella® be used in any other areas?
Currently, Kybella® is only FDA-approved to be used to reduce fat under the chin, commonly called a double chin.
How long will the fat be gone after Kybella® injections?
Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells. Future changes in weight, lifestyle, or hormones may influence the overall increase in fullness in the area as a reflection of total body changes; however, the fat cells treated with Kybella® are permanently destroyed and cannot return.
How many Kybella® treatments will I need?
Depending on the amount of fat underneath your chin, along with your overall aesthetic goals, the number of treatments may vary. We will discuss this during your initial consultation at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics. Most of our patients need between two and four Kybella® treatments to reach their final goal.
How long will it take to see my final results from Kybella®?
Kybella® results are not instant, as the injections need time to destroy the fat cells and naturally eliminate them from the body. Patients will see improvement in 4 to 6 weeks, with full results at 12 weeks after the last treatment.
What happens during a Kybella® treatment?
Kybella® injections are strategically placed over the area of the chin to target submental fat. Kybella® injections only require a very tiny needle, and the entire treatment usually only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Does Kybella® hurt?
At Renew Wellness & Aesthetics, we are not only dedicated to helping you achieve your goals; we want you to be comfortable throughout the process of Kybella® injections in Oklahoma City. Though we always numb with an ice pack before Kybella® treatment, Renew offers Pro-Nox, a self-administered, rapid-onset pain management and anxiety relief system. Ask your provider to learn more. Our team will provide you with post-treatment instructions for how to properly care for your skin and manage any swelling or soreness experienced after your treatment.
Is Kybella® the only nonsurgical procedure you offer for double chins?
Renew Wellness & Aesthetics offers other alternatives to Kybella® in Oklahoma City. If a patient is not an ideal candidate for Kybella®, Renew providers will recommend an alternative treatment plan to achieve his or her aesthetic goals.
