KYBELLA® injections can melt stubborn fat deposits under the chin to create a firmer, more youthful-looking appearance. Dr. Joseph Galitzin specializes in non-surgical facial treatments and offers his services in a comfortable, spa-like environment at Skin Care at 5th Ave in Peachtree City, GA. Submental fullness, also referred to as a “double chin,” is a common cosmetic concern that can be difficult to eliminate. It is generally caused by weight gain, aging, and genetics, but can be difficult to reduce through regular diet and exercise. Excess fat and skin under the chin can make you appear heavier and older, while also affecting your self-confidence and quality of life.
KYBELLA is an injectable treatment that can reduce the appearance of a double chin.
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved injectable cosmetic treatment that contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that aids in breaking down and absorbing fat. This proven treatment can dissolve the appearance of a double chin without undergoing costly and extensive surgical procedures.

During the procedure, Dr. Galitzin will inject KYBELLA into the fat beneath your chin. Over time, the fat cells will be destroyed to reveal a beautifully contoured jawline. The number of injections required will depend on the amount of fat below the chin, but because KYBELLA delivers permanent results, no further treatment is necessary once your desired results are achieved.
Determining Your Candidacy
During your initial consultation, Dr. Galitzin will perform a thorough examination, taking into consideration your medical history and cosmetic goals to determine your candidacy for KYBELLA. Before undergoing this procedure, be sure to make Dr. Galitzin aware if you:
- Are pregnant or planning a pregnancy
- Are currently breastfeeding
- Have difficulty swallowing
- Have had previous procedures or cosmetic treatments on or near your neck, face, or chin
- Have a bleeding or blood clotting condition
- Have a thyroid disorder
Once candidacy has been determined, Dr. Galitzin will create a treatment plan designed to meet your unique needs and cosmetic goals. Because cosmetic goals and patient profiles vary, the number of treatments needed is different for each patient.
What to Expect during the Procedure
Before beginning the treatment, Dr. Galitzin will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area under your chin for optimal comfort. At Skin Care at 5th Ave, we provide a relaxing, spa-like environment to make your treatment even more comfortable.
Once comfortable, the doctor will begin injecting KYBELLA into the fat below your chin. Because this is a prescription medication, only an approved medical care professional can administer KYBELLA. Each session takes about 15 to 20 minutes and will be completed over a series of six sessions, each one month apart. In some cases, treatment can be completed in under six sessions, but will depend on your desired results.
Once the procedure is completed, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, numbness, and bruising around the injection sites for the first 24 to 48 hours. However, if you notice a crooked smile, weak facial muscles, or have difficulty swallowing, please call our offices right away. Having your procedure performed by the premier cosmetic skincare doctor in the Atlanta area will significantly reduce your chance for complications.
