Chemistry Lesson

Kybella is an injectable composed of deoxycholic acid. While this may not sound familiar to you, it is a naturally occurring substance your body already manufactures to break down fatty particles. Only in this case, we are utilizing nature for a cosmetic effect: clearing unwanted fatty tissue permanently.


The effects of Kybella on the fatty tissue of the lower face/upper neck are permanent. However, weight gain can cause other fatty tissue to expand in this and other areas.

As with any medical treatment, ensure you are getting treated with a very experienced injector. The technique defines safety. At TLJ Aesthetics MD, no medical complications have ever occurred.

The onset of action is immediate. However, most individuals do experience swelling in the treatment area, the majority of which lasts about 4 days. The cosmetic benefit, however, continues to improve over time and with repeat treatments, typically 3-4 but sometimes up to 6.

The goal at TLJ Aesthetics MD is always ensuring a natural appearance and the result is a well-rested, refreshed, and beautiful look.

The other most common side effects include bruising and a stinging or burning sensation at the time of treatment. At TLJ Aesthetics MD, we do everything we can to help prevent and avoid any unpleasant experiences and ensure your treatment is very comfortable.

Kybella is a substance that eliminates unwanted fatty tissue of the structures of the jaw line to create a beneficial cosmetic result. Skin tightening treatments improve the tautness of the skin above soft fatty and muscle tissue. The two treatments are commonly done together for additive benefits.
