A game-changing product in facial aesthetics, KYBELLA helps men and women achieve a refined look by eliminating fat from the chin and neck line — without surgery. Also called the “double chin injection,” KYBELLA treatments in San Francisco from the Injectors at Mabrie Facial Institute are a simple way to treat one of the most stubborn concerns in the cosmetic enhancement industry. KYBELLA injections are a safe, effective tool to enhance your natural attractiveness.

What Is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is the first and only injectable drug approved by the FDA to reduce fat beneath the chin — known clinically as submental fat but usually called a double chin. Although a double chin is a common cosmetic concern, it often goes untreated because it previously required a surgical procedure, such as facial liposuction. Patients who prefer a non-surgical alternative now have a choice with KYBELLA.

It’s formulated using a synthetic version of a chemical naturally produced by the body that helps absorb and process dietary fat. The chemical, deoxycholic acid, destroys fat when it’s injected in the area beneath the chin. The destroyed fat cells are flushed from your body over time, leaving you with a slim, contoured chin and neck.

What To Expect

Our Injectors customize treatments based on your unique anatomy. Your personalized consultation includes a discussion of your aesthetic goals and a thorough physical examination. Once they determine that KYBELLA is appropriate, your Injector creates a precise treatment plan.

Because each KYBELLA treatment session includes multiple injections, your Injector marks a detailed grid on your skin showing the specific injection sites. Most treatments include 20 to 30 quick injections, although up to 50 injections are possible. A topical anesthetic is applied to help maintain your comfort during the treatment.

Most patients begin seeing results after 2 to 4 treatment sessions, spaced about a month apart. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the optimal results. Because KYBELLA destroys the fat cells, they can no longer store or accumulate fat, meaning KYBELLA is considered a permanent treatment.

How Much Does KYBELLA Cost?

At Mabrie Facial Institute, KYBELLA treatment with Dr. Mabrie costs $1,000 per vial. With one of our Physician Assistant Injectors, the price is $900. Because each treatment is tailored to a patient’s specific needs, the cost of KYBELLA treatment varies. The number of injections performed during each treatment session and the total number of sessions needed to get the desired results affect the total cost.

Prices are subject to change, so please call our office for up-to-the-minute pricing.

Are There Side Effects from KYBELLA?

Throughout the multiple clinical trials leading to KYBELLA’s approval by the FDA, the most common side effects were the same as seen in most injectable procedures. Minor bruising, swelling, and redness are typical and diminish after a few days. Numbness, pain, and hardness in the area of the injections are other temporary side effects that may occur.

Loving my results so far! I can't wait to come back again! The staff was so friendly and made me feel welcomed and very safe. The office is beautiful and clean! I was immediately greeted and did a COVID screening with a temp check. They escorted me to my room with a beautiful view of SF. I felt pampered, and their customer service is excellent! The injector Tiffany answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, since this was my first time getting Botox. After she marked my face, she explained where and why she was placing the Botox in certain areas. My frown muscles were so bulky and I didn't like how it always looked like I was frowning even when my face was at rest. Now, I don't always look like I'm frowning! My frown muscles look less bulky, forehead looks smoother and I got a subtle brow lift -- I love it!

They are amazing here w/ customer service, amiable, listen fully to your desires, and work their hardest to bring them to fruition whether it’s the initial appointment or in my case, complementary touch up w/in set timeframe. Just for clarification, when I put “they” I mean everyone from whomever answers the phone/anyone greeting you when the elevator’s doors open and you arrive at your appointment to your departure via the elevator again. Side note: I would include the security/door men as they’ve always been pleasant to me, but they aren’t apart of this business🙂

For my first time ever getting work done on my face, this was a great experience. They made me feel at home and comfortable which eased my fear. I got my mid-area done by Kimberly and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to fly back out there for my second session! If your looking to have work done I highly recommend them, you’ll be happy you did.

I came in earlier today and got a 360 facial treatment done. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable. It’s a really lovely space and it’s chic but really homey. I definitely would go back and I feel safe with the results. I feel like Dr. Mabrie was very transparent about the pricing and what he would be using and where. I do still have some swelling in my chin mainly. But excited to see what it looks like when I’m healed!

I really like the staff here however Dr. Mabrie has one of those egoic attitudes. He is good at his job and he knows it. However, he doesn't seem interested in his patients. I have been there several times and I just kind of deal with it. I just wish he acted like he cared about his clients.

Dr. Mabrie is a wizard. After extensive research across California (SF to LA and everywhere in between) for who to consult for some of my skin concerns, I chose this clinic for Dr. Mabrie's multi-faceted expertise and reviews on meticulousness. I wasn't shorted, him and his team are incredible.

I've visited Mabrie Facial Institute twice, and both visits were stellar. All staff members, from the font-line staff, to assistants, all the way up to Dr. Mabrie were kind, caring, thoughtful- I honestly just can't say enough. At no time did I feel pressured about anything. Honestly (and trust me, I'm skeptical of most people), everyone there made me feel appreciated and cared for. They were patient with my endless questions, did very careful work, and were just overall so lovely and personable. I've honestly never had such a great experience before.

I first came across Dr. Mabrie’s practice when I was reviewing the top 100 US aesthetic injectors list for 2019. While I had been to other offices in LA and NYC, I had been dying to go someplace in The Bay (where I live). Finally I had found a practice where I could draw up a beauty plan and see tangible, top of the line results. Fast forward to 2020 and I’m on my second visit with Kimberly for lower face enhancement and masseter slimming with Botox. The warmth, professionalism, and artistic vision of Kimberly and the Mabrie team is unparalleled — I highly recommend if you’ve been considering any type of cosmetic beautification, that you jump right into the chair at Mabrie Facial Cosmetics. Thanks again Mabrie team!! I love my results, and can’t wait to see you again in just a month’s time.

Previously, I've used online coupons offers which slightly improved my sunken eye look, as well as the furrows on my brow and mouth. After receiving Dr. Mabrie's facial treatment, my husband who hadn't been too impressed with my coupon treatments, immediately said, "WowI Baby, you look so beautiful!" I cannot give a greater testimonial than that. And I too share my husband's sentiment - I do look damn amazing! 🙂

I have been going to Dr. Mabrie for probably seven years and I look better than ever! I saw his online discussions of his techniques and decided, this is the doctor for me! I have not been disappointed and it's definitely worth my 2.5-3 hour drive to San Francisco to get my treatments. He and his entire staff are excellent!

Truly, the best practitioner in the Bay Area, and one who keeps up to date on new developments in the field. Since 2017, when I first went to see Dr Mabrie after noticeable loss of volume in my face, he's carefully restored me back to my younger appearance. He doesn't ever suggest unnecessary treatments or over-inject; he's not cheap (nothing in San Francisco is), but his expert approach to fillers guarantees very natural-looking results that will elicit "Oh, you're looking so great!" comments, rather than the dreaded "Got some work done, huh?" Highly recommend him!
