Just a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area can create the appearance of a "double chin," which is typically an unwanted look for both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Our team of experienced medical injectors is happy to provide this revolutionary technique to reduce neck fat at Body+Beauty Lab. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical option for upper neck fat. Although its commercial use is for eliminating submental fat, Kybella could also be used at our Philadelphia, PA office to eliminate smaller areas of fat throughout the body. The active component in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly to the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you will see a visible decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate so you can enjoy your new slender neck and defined look for years to come.
Ideal candidates for Kybella injectable treatments are those who have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin and unwanted volume. This injection addresses resistant areas of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss techniques either due to genetics, aging, or several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the best option for your goals.
"I had the pleasure of getting my first ever lip filler done by Lisa DiLello! She made me feel so comfortable before, during, and after. She explained every step and it really eased my nerves throughout the entire process. I am so happy with the results and have already recommended her to friends and family. I definitely will be booking with Lisa in the future (and when I’m ready for more lip filler)!"- I.V. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
"Where do I begin? I’m 41 and still very self conscious of the scars that teenage acne left me. I didn’t have acne for a long time, it came in quick, it came in BAD and then Accutane made it disappear. However it has left me with scars that still make me cringe. So one day I reached out to Michelle and asked her advice on what I can do to make it better. Or less noticeable. That’s when she took the wheel. (Top two pictures are before any treatment was started at all.) She started out with doing a Sublative Treatment the first session to help with my pores. Fast forward a few weeks and now she wants to give me a Frax Laser treatment. It’s starts with a numbing cream about 45 mins prior to the procedure. Then she did a Dermaplaning treatment to my face to remove the dead skin and facial hair. After that, the laser starts. This procedure has been done twice. Top two pictures are before any treatment at all. Bottom two are after 1 Sublative treatment and 2 Frax laser treatments. I cannot describe the feeling I have when my friends compliment the improvement so far. Only two people knew I was getting this done. I have been complimented by about 6-7 people asking if I didn’t anything to my skin because it looked so good! Well yes I did! I went and seen Michelle Glynn. She worked her magic and has made me feel a ton better already! I am still healing. This isn’t an overnight fix. But the work in progress is amazing and I love it. I could never thank Michelle enough for setting up the game plan and using her knowledge to help me “iron out the creases” LITERALLY. From walking into such a calm, immaculate and professional atmosphere that helps ease first time jitters to the results I have already, my trust and my face will go nowhere else but too Michelle and Body & Beauty Lab!"- J.K. / Google / Nov 23, 2020

I highly recommend Body + Beauty Lab and Jen Perry! I actually made the mistake of going somewhere else and I had the worst experience! I will only go to Jen and I hope others will go to Jen, too:)"- A.L. / Google / Nov 04, 2020
"Erica does an amazing job and is so thorough! She explains everything so well and makes sure you are getting exactly what you ask for, and that makes all the difference. I couldn’t be happier with my results and my experience!"- T.B. / Google / Oct 07, 2020
"Erica was absolutely amazing! I love my results! I was incredibly nervous and she did a phenomenal job easing my nerves, consulting before hand to determine exactly what I was looking for, and providing amazing results! Will be recommending Erica and Body+Beauty Lab to all of my friends! Hopefully visiting again soon for a few more services!"- M.K. / Google / Oct 02, 2020
Kybella is performed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Your medical injector will apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, once the skin has been cleaned. The injection process typically lasts around 15 minutes and consists of a few small injections distributed into the upper neck area. While some clients may require a single treatment to get to their desired look, others could need additional treatments spaced three weeks apart at Body+Beauty Lab.
What to Expect
Kybella injections don't require the use of general anesthesia so you will be allowed to leave our office when you are ready to return to your daily routine. You may notice short-term numbness, bruising, or swelling below your chin, although this shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Contact Body+Beauty Lab right away if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, including difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not regenerate, the cells left over can grow larger so you need to maintain a stable weight after your Kybella treatments to prevent new pockets of fat from developing. Your outcomes from this procedure will leave your neck with a sleeker and slimmer appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Kybella cost?
Kybella treatment costs will vary, depending on how many appointments you need. During your initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to match your goals. A member of our staff will also review the payments we accept at your first appointment. If you're interested in saving money on future treatments, we invite you to learn more about our VIP membership program, which entitles members to receive special deals and discounts on several of our popular services.
How does Kybella work?
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is designed to break down fat cells. Once the fat cells are eliminated, these cells cannot regenerate. This is why more injections shouldn't be needed as soon as you have met your goal.
Am I eligible for a Kybella treatment?
Before your consultation, you will answer a few questions to make sure you are a candidate for Kybella treatments. You need to be at least 18 years old, not breastfeeding or pregnant, and you should not have an active infection in or around your neck. Before the process begins, you are encouraged to be open about your medical history and health concerns so we can determine if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction from the treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
At your initial consultation, a personalized injection plan will be created to match your cosmetic goals. Usually, patients get between 2 – 4 Kybella injections to achieve their goals. Kybella appointments need to be scheduled around 30 days apart. You shouldn't receive any more than six injections.
