Kybella fat reduction at Amavi Medspa in Bay Shore, NY can:
- Reduce moderate to severe chin fat
- Improve your profile
- Provide long-lasting results*
Kybella is made from a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down fat cells. Once injected, Kybella goes to work destroying fat cells.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kybella at Amavi Medspa in Suffolk County, NY
What happens during a Kybella treatment?
To ensure your comfort, we will first apply a topical numbing cream to your chin area. We will then gently inject Kybella into several carefully selected areas of your chin, which typically takes about 20 minutes. Post treatment, we will apply a cold pack to your chin to help reduce any swelling.
Is Kybella at Amavi Medspa in Bay Shore, NY painful?
Kybella is well tolerated. Because it involves multiple injections in your chin, it may cause some temporary discomfort. We will take every precaution to ensure your comfort throughout your Kybella treatment, applying topical anesthetic and ice packs before and after your session, as needed.
How many Kybella treatments will I need?
Your treatment will depend on the amount of fat you would like to reduce and your personal goals. Each Kybella treatment is spaced at least one month apart, and no more than six treatments should be administered. Many patients achieve superb results* after a series of three treatments.
Are there any side effects or downtime?
Kybella can produce swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness at the injection sites, which gradually subside in the weeks following treatment. You should be able to resume your normal activities immediately following treatment. To conceal any swelling, many patients wear scarves or turtlenecks.
How long will it take to see results*?
Since Kybella takes time to destroy fat cells, you can expect to start enjoying improvements to your profile within two weeks of your treatment, with continued improvements for months to come*.
How long will Kybella last?
Once fat cells are destroyed, they can never return. This means that Kybella results* can last as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
