What is KYBELLA?
Just a little bit of extra fat in the upper throat area will create the presence of a "double chin" that many patients find bothersome. The excess pockets of fat beneath the chin (the submental area) can lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Triple board-certified physician Dr. Janice Alexander is pleased to provide KYBELLA, a nonsurgical injectable technique to reduce neck fat for men and women. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic deoxycholic acid (DA), which acts similarly to the natural DA in the body to dissolve fat cells. After your injections, you should be able to see a visible reduction in the amount of neck fat. Contact the team at Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics in Cedarburg, WI to learn more.

How Is Kybella Performed?
KYBELLA is performed in one of our private treatment rooms in Cedarburg, WI. Dr. Alexander will start by applying a numbing cream to the treatment area. The procedure lasts about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes multiple small injections into the submental area. Some patients may need one treatment to achieve their desired look while other patients may require several sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks. After your treatment, you can leave our office and resume your normal routine. You may experience short-term swelling, bruising, or numbness beneath your chin. While the fat that is destroyed does not return, it is important to keep a steady weight after your KYBELLA treatments to keep new pockets of fat from developing. Within 4 – 6 weeks, you should notice a slimmer neck and a more defined profile that should last for years to come.
How much does KYBELLA cost?
The price of KYBELLA treatments will depend on the number of sessions you need. During your consultation, a personalized KYBELLA treatment plan will be created to match your goals. A member of our team will also review the payments we accept in your consultation.
How does KYBELLA work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA, deoxycholic acid, works to break down and destroy fat cells in the upper neck. After they are destroyed, these fat cells will not grow back. This is why additional treatments should not be necessary once you have reached your desired outcome.
Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of the body?
Currently, KYBELLA can only be used to treat the area below the chin. KYBELLA has been proven to effectively minimize the look of a double chin. KYBELLA isn't approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for any other areas of the face or body.
Am I eligible for a KYBELLA treatment?
There are a few factors that could make you ineligible to receive a KYBELLA treatment. You must be over the age of 18 years old, not breastfeeding or pregnant, and cannot have any infection in or around your neck. Prior to receiving treatment, you are encouraged to share your medical history and health concerns with your injector so they can decide if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction from the treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
In your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be tailored to match your cosmetic goals. Usually, patients get between 2 – 4 KYBELLA injections to achieve their goals. KYBELLA treatments need to be spaced about 30 days apart. You shouldn't get any more than six treatments.
