Kybella or PCDC uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The compound is injected into the area of concern to break down the fat pocket that creates the appearance of the “double chin.” Fat eliminated during the treatment is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.


Kybella or PCDC is injected during an office visit. For each treatment session we start by numbing our clients, then we disinfect the skin, measure and mark out the treatment area, and perform a series of injections. This injection process generally takes 15 to 20 minutes.

You can resume your normal daily activities immediately after treatment, though you will have substantial swelling for the first few days. Keep social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment. Swelling is generally resolved enough to return to work and workouts in 3 days. The remainder of swelling and inflammation will be completely resolved within one month. Results will develop gradually over time as the fat disappears.

The number of treatment sessions required will vary between patients based on the amount and distribution of fat in the treatable area and personal treatment goals. Most people will require between two and three treatment sessions, but some may require as many as four or five. Treatment sessions will generally be spaced about four to six weeks apart. Results are permanent with additional treatments not expected once the desired outcome is achieved.

Anyone with localized deposits of subcutaneous fat is considered ideal for Kybella or PCDC. Mesotherapy is also called Lipo Dissolve and can not only be used to treat localized fat but also treat cellulite. We always recommend scheduling a consultation with our providers to determine if Kybella or PCDC is right for you.

The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, tenderness, areas of firmness, numbness, and redness, all of which resolve with time. There is also a small risk of nerve damage along the jawline which could lead to temporary asymmetry of the smile. For this reason, only experienced cosmetic injectors should perform these treatments.
