Eliminate Double Chin with Kybella
Kybella is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment that improves the adult profile by destroying fat cells under the chin.
Once thought of as a problem that could only be solved through surgical intervention, submental fullness, aka the “double chin” is treatable for the first time ever, through a non-invasive injectable treatment called Kybella. Fullness under the chin affects both men and women alike and can be caused by weight gain, genetics, and aging. Unfortunately most people find that no matter how much they diet and exercise their submental fullness does not go away on its own. As one of the first medical spas in Fort Collins to bring in Kybella, we have successfully treated countless clients who found significant improvement in their appearance from this treatment.

The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, which can result in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.*
At Harmony Skin & Wellness Clinic we put the health and safety of our client’s first! Before bringing in a new service we employ our in-house medical experts to research new procedures, and when it comes to injectables we only bring in FDA approved and well studied products. For eight years Kybella was in clinical trials in the United States, with over 1,000 patients receiving the treatment. The FDA approved the use of Kybella injections to dissolve submental fat beneath the chin in mid-2015; after concluding Kybella was both safe and effective for chin fat reduction.
As with almost any injectable, the treatment can be hard to detect. Kybella does not require any downtime and most people feel comfortable returning to work immediately. During the recovery for Kybella Fort Collins patients report minor to moderate swelling occurs as the fat is being destructed and slowly absorbed into the body. The swelling is most severe after the first treatment and usually gets better each following treatment. We always recommend to our patients in Fort Collins Kybella be used several months before a big event as the results take time to set in and the number of treatments varies from person to person.
At Harmony we do our best to ensure accurate expectations for our clients, and evaluate clients to make sure they are good candidates for all our procedures, prior to treatment. While almost anyone will benefit from Kybella treatments, some clients have sagging skin that additionally requires Ultherapy for tightening, if the laxity is mild, or cosmetic surgery for tightening for those with moderate to severe skin laxity. After receiving Kybella Fort Collins patients are one step closer to achieving their beauty goals!
When considering these procedures please be sure to schedule 4-6 weeks prior to any special event or extended travel plans.
