Submental Fat (“Double Chin”) Reduction by Parfaire
Have you looked in the mirror lately and seen what we would lovingly call a “double chin?” Submental fullness impacts a broad range of adults including men and women, and is often caused by aging, genetics, and weight gain. Even with optimal diet and exercise, this stubborn fat is often resistant to your healthy routine.*
If you do not want to undergo facial plastic surgery, Parfaire can help melt away your stubborn chin fat thanks to a new FDA-approved injectable treatment called Kybella.*

What is Kybella and how does it work?
Kybella is an advanced injectable treatment to eliminate moderate to severe unwanted fat deposits under the chin, creating a more sculpted facial profile. The best news is that Kybella requires no surgery, and each treatment takes only 15-20 minutes to administer.*
Kybella is primarily used to treat double chin fat, but can also be used on:
- Bra Bulge
- Love Handles
- Back of Arms
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat, and then are metabolized naturally, leaving your with long-lasting or permanent results.*
What should you expect during my Kybella treatment?
Topical numbing may be used prior the treatment for your comfort. Bruising, swelling and hardness will likely occur after treatment, but can be covered with makeup and should only last a few days. A temporary stinging/burning sensation and/or mild to moderate swelling may also occur which indicates the fat dissolving process has started working in the treated area. Swelling may be significant for 7-10 days after the treatment and can last for 1-2 weeks, and up to 3 weeks for more severe cases. Noticeable results should start to appear within 3-5 weeks. Swelling is a reaction of the fat dissolving process and is expected.*
How many treatments will you need?
Our doctor will customize your Kybella treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Most patients experience visible results in 2-4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, Dr. Winnie Moses will administer Kybella into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Treatments must be administered 6 weeks apart.*
How long does Kybella last?
The FDA clinical studies indicate that Kybella results are permanent as long as there are no significant lifestyle changes. At least 2 treatments are typically needed to obtain noticeable results. Patients from the clinical studies who experienced weight gain after receiving Kybella treatment did not see the return of their submental fullness.*
What should I know before my Kybella treatment?
There are certain things to be avoided before your treatment such as NSAIDs (Motrin, Aleve, Naproxen), Aspirin, Green Tea, Fish Oil and Vitamin E supplements two weeks prior to your appointment. Kybella cannot be performed if there is an infection (acne breakout, rosacea flare, lymph node swelling) in the treatment area. A consultation is necessary prior to your treatment; please contact our office today to schedule your appointment.*
