What is KYBELLA?
In both men and women, even a little bit of extra fat in the upper neck area can create a "double chin." The unwanted pockets of fat beneath the chin (submental area) are caused by aging, genetics, or weight gain. These different factors can lead to a less defined profile. At JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, our team is happy to provide a revolutionary treatment that eliminates neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical procedure for upper neck fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that works like the natural DA in your body. DA helps dissolve and absorb fat cells. After we inject it beneath the chin, you may see a visible decrease in the volume of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not return so you can enjoy your new slender profile for years to come.
The best candidates for KYBELLA injectable treatments have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area), which causes unwanted fullness or a double chin. This injection addresses stubborn pockets of fat that are hard to remove with normal weight loss treatments because of genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near your goal weight, but you still have trouble eliminating neck fat, KYBELLA could help you meet your cosmetic goals. While KYBELLA reduces small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets may require surgical neck liposuction. We will recommend the best treatment options for you during your consultation.

Our Kybella Injection Technique
After a comprehensive consultation, we will perform your KYBELLA injections in one of our spacious treatment rooms. We start by cleaning your skin to remove any oil or lotions. If preferred, we can apply a numbing gel to the treatment area. Usually, the appointment lasts around 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections that target the submental area. Some patients may require a single treatment to attain their desired goal while others may require additional treatments at three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Once your KYBELLA treatment is complete, you can leave our office when you feel comfortable enough to resume your daily activities. At first, you may experience temporary numbness, bruising, or swelling underneath your chin. These side effects should not last longer than 2 – 3 days. If you notice any unusual side effects, please call JEM Medspa immediately! Negative side effects may include facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or uneven facial expressions. While the eliminated fat cells do not return, the ones that remain can become larger. We highly recommend maintaining a stable weight, which helps prevent new pockets of fat from forming. After your KYBELLA injections, your neck should appear slimmer and tighter, and your profile will look more defined.
