Facial Contouring with Kybella in Kansas City

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 even 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.

Patients who turn to the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center for Kybella can expect to achieve a much more flattering silhouette after a series of 3-6 treatment sessions.

How It Works



At Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center, consultations are where we truly get to know you. We’ll listen to your concerns, assess the current condition of your skin, and work with you to determine an injection plan that fits your lifestyle and budget.

How It Works



Your expert injector will administer the appropriate amount of Kybella into the submental area. Throughout the process, we will walk you through each step to ensure you feel comfortable with the treatment and understand what to expect.

Next Steps

We will assess the treated area to ensure proper placement of the Kybella. We’ll answer every question you have about the treatment and give you instructions on the best ways to maintain your results. Then, we welcome you to schedule any follow-up appointments you need.

How it Works



When Kybella comes into contact with the fat cells underneath the chin, the treatment’s active ingredients destroy them. Then, over time, the fat is naturally and permanently eliminated from your body. The result is a more contoured, defined profile that enhances your overall appearance.
