Kybella Chicago

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.

Kybella Treatments in Chicago – (Oakbrook Terrace)

Patients treated with Kybella consistently report an improvement in the amount of fat under the skin, as well as an improvement in the emotional impact that submental fat can hold on confidence levels and happiness. Patients receive up to six treatments, with results beginning to show between two and four treatment sessions. Sessions last 15-20 minutes each.

Kybella is a deoxycholic injection used to significantly reduce submental fullness, or “double chin”. Kybella is the first and only approved non-surgical treatment to receive FDA approval for submental fullness. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat, and destroys these fat cells permanently. For patients, this means the effective, safe removal of submental fat without liposuction or invasive surgery!

Kybella is the first FDA injectable approved for contouring and dissolving fat and diminishing the appearance of fat underneath the chin. Compromised of deoxycholic acid, the main active ingredient in Kybella, which occurs naturally in the body, assists in the breakdown and absorption of the fat. Through a series of Kybella injections, the specialists at Kovak Cosmetic Center can shape the jawline and improve the overall contouring of the chin and neck area. 


Once the fat cells in these areas are destroyed, they are gone permanently! No more worrying about unwanted fat on the neck and underneath the chin taking away from a patient’s beautiful complexion. Instead, the fat cells targeted by Kybella are broken down and excreted from the body by the body’s natural metabolism.

These revolutionary injectables allow patients to avoid surgery at all costs and incredibly reduce the amount of fat around the neck and cheek. As a result, patients no longer have to go through invasive procedures that take you away from their daily life due to long and painful recovery times. Instead, Kybella therapy quickly, effectively, and safely melts their double chin in as few as three simple treatments. 

The procedure at Kovak Cosmetic Center only takes a few minutes out of the patient’s day, ideal for those who live a busy life and need a quick and simple solution. Patients see permanent results almost right away, taking full effect between 4 to 6 weeks following the last treatment. Are you ready to get rid of unwanted fat? Then get ready for a smooth and youthful jawline and neck. 


As mentioned above, Kybella is a synthetic form of a naturally occurring molecule found in the body, deoxycholic acid. This molecule assists in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. The moment Kybella is injected into the patient’s body, the fat cells are quickly destroyed in the area being treated. Once broken down and absorbed, the body’s metabolism eliminates these unwanted cells. To learn more about how Kybella works, talk with the body improvement specialists during the primary consultation, and they will go in-depth about the injections! 


Patients need not worry; the treatment is simple and will fit perfectly with their busy day. First, they will start with a consultation with our renowned cosmetic improvement specialist, where the goals they want to achieve will be discussed. The expert will closely examine the area and determine which points need to be targeted. After the consultation, the procedure entails: 

  1. A topical numbing cream is applied an hour before the procedure. 
  2.  After an hour, the numbing cream is removed, and the targeted area will be marked. 
  3. Following the marked pattern, Kybella is injected, and then an ice pack is immediately applied. 

Which areas of the body can Kybella be injected into?

  • Double chin/submental fat
  • Flanks
  • Jowls
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Abdomen
  • Arms


There are numerous procedures for patients to take advantage of, both invasive and non-invasive. However, for years surgery has been the only option for permanent results. While other treatments such as dermal fillers provide a short-term solution without an invasive procedure, patients need one that lasts and fits with their budget and schedule. Reasons for choosing Kybella are endless, including: 

  • Deoxycholic acid is a natural enzyme found in the body. Therefore the entire treatment does not use harmful chemicals to correct the issue. 
  • Patients are in and out of the clinic with minor swelling after leaving the clinic. 
  • The risks are substantially less than in surgical therapies. 
  • No downtime away from daily responsibilities is needed, just slip away during lunch, and you’ll be back before anyone notices. 


You’ve got questions, and our clinic has the answers. However, if a question you have on your mind isn’t answered below, feel free to ask them during your primary consultation at Kovak Cosmetic Center! 

Is Kybella Permanent?

One of the questions patients ask the most is: “Does it last forever.” The answer is, well, yes! However, like many contouring procedures, upkeep is needed following the process. As with other parts of the body, excess weight gain can happen, and it will impact the results of the treatment as the fat cells that were eliminated during the therapy will be replaced with new fat cells when the proper steps aren’t taken. Be sure to follow up with a regular diet and exercise routine to ensure that results stay incredible! 

Does Kybella Work? 

Of course! Kybella is one of the leading non-invasive treatments that permanently eliminate fat cells in various body areas. The therapy is available for both men and women and has been one of the most sought-after remedies in our clinic. 

Does Kybella hurt?

The specialists apply a topical numbing cream to the area so that patients feel no discomfort. This therapy is highly tolerable. 

When does the swelling go down? 

The swelling from Kybella is moderate and is dependent on the number of fat cells in the area being treated. Usually, the swelling doesn’t last more than a couple of days.
