What is Kybella?


Even if your body is in peak shape, fullness beneath your chin can make you appear overweight. This can cause significant distress or discomfort with your appearance. At Skin Suite Rx in Chino, CA, the top non-invasive anti-aging and acne center, we are proud to offer Kybella, a non-invasive treatment designed to target submental fullness. If you’re looking for a solution to reduce the appearance of fullness under your chin, Kybella may be the right treatment for you.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that targets fat accumulated beneath the chin. This cosmetic injectable is made from synthetic deoxycholic acid, a compound that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. It is the only FDA-approved prescription medicine designed specifically for targeting submental fullness. This non-invasive cosmetic treatment is able to visibly reduce fullness beneath the chin, thereby improving the appearance of the profile.

What Is Submental Fullness?

The region beneath the chin is known as the submental area. When fat accumulates in this area, it is known as submental fullness; many people commonly refer to this condition as having a “double chin”. Fullness under the chin can be difficult to target with healthy diet and exercise; the condition can affect men and women with otherwise healthy body weight, giving the appearance of being overweight. This can be distressing and cause a lack of self-esteem, lower confidence, or even body dysmorphia.

What Causes Submental Fullness?

Increased submental fat can be caused by a number of factors. While fullness in this region is most commonly caused by weight gain, genetics and aging can also play a role in the development of submental fullness. This is why fat can show up beneath the chins of people who are otherwise in shape.

How Does It Work?

This medicinal treatment is made from synthetic deoxycholic acid, mimicking the body’s natural process for fat absorption. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in the body and is instrumental in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. By injecting this molecule into the fat beneath the chin, this treatment is able to destroy fat cells similarly to the body’s own process. This results in a visible reduction of fullness under the chin. These cells, once destroyed by deoxycholic acid, are no longer able to store or accumulate fat, thereby producing long-lasting results.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?

An ideal candidate for this treatment is in good mental and physical health and has realistic expectations about the results of this treatment. If you are bothered by the appearance of fat beneath the chin, you are an ideal candidate for this treatment, especially if the appearance of submental fullness causes you to look older or heavier than you actually are or if a healthy diet and regular exercise is not impacting the appearance of submental fullness. If, for whatever reason, undergoing cosmetic surgery to remove submental fat is not an optimal choice for you, then this non-invasive treatment may be the right solution.

Who Is Not a Good Candidate for This Treatment?

This treatment plan is not suitable for anyone who has an infection, including acne or inflammation, in the targeted treatment area. Once any infection or inflammation has cleared up, whether on its own or with the help of our experts, you may consider this treatment. If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant in the near future, or are breastfeeding/planning to breastfeed, it is not advisable to receive this cosmetic treatment. Additionally, if your aesthetic goals reach beyond reducing submental fullness, you may wish to consider another treatment option to achieve your desired results.

What To Expect From Treatment

If you feel you may be a good candidate for this cosmetic injectable, you’re likely wondering what to expect from treatments. In this section we will breakdown what to expect before, during, and after your first appointment.

Your Initial Consultation

Before starting any cosmetic treatment, a consultation is required. During your consultation for Kybella treatments, our team of experts will examine the area beneath and around your chin to determine if this is the right solution for you. During your consultation, we’ll also speak about your medical history, including any current medications, to ensure that this treatment is safe for you. Once we have assessed your case, we will create a unique treatment plan to reduce your submental fullness and reach your aesthetic goals.

At your initial consultation, it is important that you disclose any medical conditions that may have an impact on your treatment. For example, if you have had any surgery or cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin or have any medical conditions in or around this area, this may impact your treatment eligibility. Additionally, if you have had any troubles with swallowing or bleeding, it is important to communicate to our specialists. All medicines you are currently taking also must be disclosed, especially if you take anything that thins the blood or prevents clotting (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).

What Does a Treatment Session Look Like?

After completing a consultation, we’ll book you in for your first appointment. Your cosmetic injectables will be administered by a trained healthcare specialist; you can relax knowing you are in good hands. Each treatment session will take between 15 and 20 minutes. During this time, you will receive multiple small injections to the submental region. The exact number of injections will depend on the severity of your submental fullness and your desired profile results.

How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?

Everyone’s chin profile is unique, so the number of treatment sessions required to hit your aesthetic goals will be unique as well. Typically, recipients of this cosmetic injectable receive 6 treatments, though this number varies from patient to patient. During your initial consultation, our specialists will be able to give you a more accurate assessment regarding how many treatment sessions you will need. This number will be based on the amount of submental fat you have accumulated, its distribution under your chin, and your personal aesthetic goals.

Treatment sessions must be scheduled at least 1 month apart and you should not exceed 6 treatments. Treatment is tailored to target the amount of submental fat and meet your aesthetic goals; since the targeted cells will not be able to continue storing or accumulating fat once they have been destroyed, further treatment is not required once your desired aesthetic goal has been reached.

Does This Treatment Require Downtime?

Downtime is not required after a treatment session. It is likely that you will experience some swelling, numbness, or bruising in the treatment area following your appointment; however, these minor inconveniences should be short-lived. Our specialists will provide you with aftercare instructions following your appointment to help minimize any discomfort that may occur.

What Is RF Skin Tightening?

RF Skin Tightening

Fine lines, sagging, and fragility are hallmarks of aging skin, but did you know that there’s a treatment that can easily rejuvenate your appearance? RF skin tightening, offered by Skin Suite Rx in Chino, CA, can tighten, tone, and contour your skin. Best of all, this treatment is quick and non-invasive.

What Is RF Skin Tightening?

EndyMed 3DEEP RF skin tightening is a revolutionary treatment that can help you say goodbye to sagging skin, wrinkles, and cellulite. It can also slim and contour the body. This approach to tightening works by harnessing the power of radiofrequency energy to heat a deep layer of skin called the dermis, stimulating collagen production. That extra collagen helps plump and tighten the skin, filling in fine lines and loose, crepey skin.

Which Parts of the Body Can This Be Performed On?

The face and neck are the most popular parts of the body to be treated. But this approach to skin tightening can also be effective elsewhere on the body, including on the abdomen, thighs, and arms.

What Can I Expect From Treatment?

These treatments are easy and comfortable. We’ll ask that you arrive at our practice with clean skin that’s free of makeup, creams, or lotions. We’ll then use external wands to direct radiofrequency waves to your skin. EndyMed 3DEEP has three different wands, each of which works with its own purpose: contouring, microneedling, and fractional skin resurfacing.

You may feel warmth, and possibly a tingling sensation, as the devices work. Some patients compare the treatment to a hot stone massage. Your entire session will last less than one hour, making it an ideal lunchtime treatment.

What Type of Recovery Is Involved?

Your skin may be pinkish immediately following treatment, but this will subside quickly. Patients are generally able to return immediately to their regular activities.

How Quickly Will I See Results?

Most patients notice that their skin seems tighter, smoother, and more contoured almost immediately, and because this treatment stimulates collagen production, your results will continue to improve over time.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A series of six treatments is often recommended. This approach to skin tightening does not offer permanent results, but many patients schedule one or two maintenance treatments a year after their initial series.

Who Is This For?

Your Skin Is Showing Signs of Age

The best candidates are men and women who are frustrated with signs of aging, which may include loose skin, fine lines, sun damage, or large pores. Some individuals also turn to this treatment because they desire a treatment that will improve the texture and tone of their skin more than a facial or a chemical peel would. Many RF skin tightening patients are between 40 and 60 years of age.

You’re in Good General Health

Patients who undergo this treatment should be in good overall physical and mental health. If you have a Pacemaker, a defibrillator, implanted electronic devices or other metal implants, or rosacea, you may not be a candidate. This treatment is also not suitable for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

You’re Realistic About the Outcome

The ideal patient understands this treatment and is realistic about the outcomes it is likely to yield, which may be less dramatic than surgery.

What Advantages Are Associated With RF Skin Tightening?

It’s a Non-Surgical Option

This treatment is an excellent option for patients who are ready to fight back against aging skin with a non-surgical option. Some patients even consider this approach to skin tightening to be a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. Compared with surgery, RF skin tightening is less expensive and requires no downtime. RF skin tightening also causes less stress on the body.

It Can Increase Hyaluronic Acid

This treatment encourages the body’s production of collagen and elastin, and when both of those increase, hyaluronic acid is likely to follow. Hyaluronic acid binds together water molecules, increasing moisture levels in the skin. When you have plenty of hyaluronic acids, your skin is more likely to be smooth and moisturized. Moisture plumps the skin, filling in fine lines and soothing redness.

It’ll Leave Your Skin Healthier

In addition to the rejuvenating aspects of this treatment, it can also leave your skin healthier. The gentle heat generated by this treatment increases the metabolism of your cells. It also widens the blood vessels, allowing blood flow to increase and bringing more oxygen in. The enhanced blood flow encourages dermal remodeling and bolsters the overall health of your skin.

It’s a Custom Treatment

Each patient comes to us with a unique set of cosmetic concerns, and we’re able to customize RF skin tightening treatments for every patient. We can make adjustments based on your age, skin type, and area of concern.

It’s Relaxing

Patients love the gentle and relaxing nature of this treatment. There are no needles and anesthesia is not involved. The wand emits a gentle warmth, and some patients even fall asleep during their sessions.

It’s a Safe Treatment

This approach to skin tightening has been cleared by the FDA and has been widely and safely performed. The technology used in this treatment is carefully monitored and controlled to ensure that the temperature reached is both safe and optimal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will My Insurance Plan Cover This Treatment?

Because RF skin tightening is performed primarily for cosmetic purposes, most health insurance plans do not cover it.

Is There an Age Requirement?

Patients seeking out this treatment should be at least 18 years of age.

Is This Appropriate for All Skin Types?

Yes, this treatment works well on all skin types and tones.

Can I Pair This With Other Treatments?

Yes, patients often combine RF skin tightening with other treatments. Many individuals opt to have this treatment performed in combination with body contouring and anti-aging treatments.

Can I Perform This Treatment on Myself at Home?

Radiofrequency devices can be purchased for home use, but they generally aren’t as powerful as the technology used by a professional. The results obtained with a home device may not be as noticeable or as long-lasting.

Can I Do Anything To Ward Off the Aging Process?

There are several steps you can take to keep your skin looking its healthy best, including drinking plenty of water, adhering to a healthy diet, and avoiding excessive sun exposure. Using high-quality moisturizers and serums can also help.

But even if you take those steps, it’s important to remember that it’s normal for the skin to produce less collagen as the body ages. That’s why RF skin tightening, which encourages the body to produce more of that essential collagen, is so popular.

How Can I Get Started?

If you’re interested in pursuing skin tightening, the first step is to schedule a consultation at our practice. This appointment will give us a chance to evaluate your skin, review your medical history, and talk with you about your cosmetic goals. We’ll work with you to determine whether this treatment is the right approach.

What Does Botox Do?

Have you ever wondered if Botox is for you? This popular injectable treatment is best known for its wrinkle-busting capabilities, but it can be used to address other cosmetic concerns as well. At Skin Suite Rx in Chino, CA, this treatment can be used in various ways to help patients achieve their best cosmetic goals.

What Does Botox Do?

Fight Wrinkles

This treatment is well known for its ability to smooth away fine facial lines like crow’s feet, upper lip lines, and frown lines that sometimes form on the forehead or between the brows. This injectable softens the appearance of lines that form as a result of smiling, frowning, and other facial expressions many of us make daily. These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles.

Smooth Chin Dimples

As we age, fat loss in the chin area can lead to lines and dimples. This treatment can be administered in a way that smooths over those divots in the lower face, giving the chin a fresh, firm, and more youthful appearance.

Realign the Eyebrows

Are your eyebrows misaligned or sagging, leaving you with a perpetually frustrated or tired appearance? Botox can be used to bring the eyebrows back into a normal alignment and position.

Tighten Neck Skin

This injectable can relax the muscles that contribute to lines and wrinkles in the neck area, giving you smoother and more youthful skin.

Correct a Smile That Shows Too Much Gum

If your natural smile reveals too much of your gums, this amazing treatment can correct the issue. When Botox is injected into the area between your upper lip and nose, it can minimize the degree to which the upper lip rises during a smile, giving patients a more natural smile.

Address Medical Concerns

Although this injectable is primarily used for cosmetic reasons, it can sometimes help with medical issues such as migraine headaches, eye muscle disorders, and even teeth grinding.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

Appointments are quick, easy, and convenient. At the beginning of your session, we may make a few marks on your skin, which we’ll use as guides when administering the injections. Patients then recline comfortably in a treatment chair while we make several brief injections. You’ll feel a quick series of pricks, and then your appointment will be over and you’ll be able to get back to your regular schedule.

Most appointments can be completed in less than an hour, making this an ideal lunch hour treatment.

When Will I See Results?

For most of our patients, it takes two or three days for their results to develop, with their full results becoming visible in 14 days. A single appointment will give you results that can last several months, and when your results begin to fade, you’ll have the option of scheduling a follow-up injection.

How Does This Treatment Work?

Botox is part of a class of treatments known as neuromodulators. These treatments use botulinum toxin to paralyze nerves and slow down some of the underlying muscle activity that drives facial expressions and the fine lines created by those repeated expressions.

What Advantages Are Associated With This Treatment?


Patients love the convenience associated with this non-surgical, injectable treatment. Appointments are brief and this treatment involves no downtime. Turning back the clock on your appearance has never been so easy.


This versatile treatment can be used on patients with all skin types and tones.

Natural Results

The results offered by this treatment develop quickly and appear natural. You won’t have to worry about looking plastic, or appearing as though you went and had a cosmetic treatment performed. We’re experts in administering this treatment, and we’ll design an approach that will best address your cosmetic goals and concerns. We can even adjust your results if needed.


Botox won FDA approval in 2002 and has been widely and effectively used in the years since.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

You’re Healthy

This injectable treatment is ideal for patients who are in good overall physical and emotional health. It is not recommended for individuals who are pregnant.

Your Skin Is Healthy

To undergo this treatment, the skin in the target area should be healthy and free of inflammation.

You’re Bothered by Signs of Aging

If you’re frustrated by fine lines, a dimpled chin, or other signs of aging, Botox can help you refresh and revitalize your appearance. Some patients turn to this treatment as a way of preparing for a special event, like a wedding or reunion. Others seek this treatment every few months as part of a long-term anti-aging regimen.

You Want a Convenient Treatment

Patients love the sheer convenience of this treatment, which makes it easier than ever to revitalize your appearance. This treatment usually takes less than an hour, requires no preparation, and involves no downtime.

You’re Realistic About the Outcome

Patients should understand how this treatment works and have realistic expectations about what it can accomplish. This neurotoxin can resolve early signs of aging, but it won’t take decades off of your appearance or resolve body image issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I Need To Take Any Special Precautions After This Treatment?

There are a couple of steps you can take to ensure your best results after treatment. It’s a good idea to refrain from laying down for four hours, and if the injections were performed on your forehead, try not to wear a tight-fitting hat or headband immediately after treatment. During the first 24 hours after treatment, avoid massaging the skin around the injection site.

What’s the Best Age for Treatment?

The right age to seek out this treatment is whenever you’re bothered by early signs of aging and ready to take action. Many patients turn to Botox in their thirties or forties when fine facial lines begin to appear. Others begin receiving occasional treatments in their twenties as a way of warding off the aging process.

Will This Treatment Get Rid of All My Wrinkles?

This treatment is especially effective on dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines caused by repeated facial expressions. It is not always the best option for patients looking to treat static wrinkles, which are those that develop as collagen levels in the skin decline as part of the natural aging process. If static wrinkles are your primary concern, we may recommend another treatment option for you.

Does Insurance Cover This Treatment?

Because this treatment is most often performed for cosmetic purposes, health insurance frequently does not cover it. Insurance plans occasionally cover these injections if they are performed for a medical purpose.

How Many Injections Will Be Necessary?

The number of injections performed will be determined by your cosmetic concern, and we’ll be able to make a recommendation after evaluating your skin. To address crow’s feet, we may recommend three injections around each eye, and for forehead lines, we may recommend five injections.
