Fade away fat cells under your chin with Kybella® injections at ZO Skin Centre® Pasadena, CA. Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) is a fantastic Food & Drug Administration (FDA)-approved injection formulated to target stubborn "double chin" fat. Having lived with a double chin for years, many patients of all sizes (you do not have to be overweight to have submental fat) now enjoy their facial profile without surgery. This nonsurgical treatment is performed by our experienced, certified Kybella® injectors for men and women over the age of 18. Once injected, Kybella® shrinks the fat cells so that your body can naturally eliminate them. This treatment is performed in a series of 3 – 6 appointments, which is dependent on how your body reacts to Kybella®. Your double chin will gradually look thinner between your injection sessions. Call and schedule a private appointment at the ZO Skin Centre® to see if you qualify.

"I saw Jameson at ZO Skin center. I went in for Botox and fillers. he was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and clearly engaged with what treatment options I wanted. he took his time and listened carefully to my concerns and explained in depth what would work for what look I was trying to achieve. he also recommended a skin care treatment/regiment that would help with damaged skin, dryness and redness I have. after a week and half of following his precise instructions and recommended products from ZO skin care line I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing so far. Im looking forward to following up with jameson for all of my future skin care/Botox/fillers needs. well done Jameson and the staff at ZO for making me feel so welcomed and comfortable."- M.A. / Yelp / Sep 16, 2022
"Serene Obagi is a miracle worker! She has completely transformed my skin and facial asymmetry, which I have suffered from for years. She is kind, patient, hilarious and seriously amazing. Serene was able to restore balance and harmony to my face after some various filler mishaps and has left me looking clear, bright and feeling beautiful. I recommend her to every person I ever talk to! I go to the ZO clinic in Pasadena, and their staff is always welcoming and willing to accommodate my busy work schedule. I recommended Serene to my mom who goes to her in Newport and Laguna as well, Serene actually makes the effort to get to know her clients and hops around to all of the clinics to deliver the best possible services for whatever your concerns are, from acne to liquid facelifts to skin brightening. You also can’t beat Obagi’s ZO skincare which is the best medical grade skincare I have ever used. Thank you SO much Serene and ZO Pasadena!!! :)"- L.R. / Yelp / Jun 24, 2022
"Serene Obagi has been my nurse and skin guru for the past few months. I can also say she’s been my angel because she has transformed my skin and has made me feel and look my best! She makes sure to customize my skincare regimen and follows up every 4-6 weeks to check on my progress. She is caring, professional and so knowledgeable! Just look at my before and after picture (i had really bad hyperpigmentation and she was able to help me get rid of every single and dark spot!!) I always hated everything about my skin and was so embarrassed by it since a teenager :( thanks to Serene and the Zo products, i now have healthy, clear and vibrant skin- i have never received so many compliments on how good my skin looks- it’s amazing how these products work like magic. Just be patient and trust the process!! I go to the clinic in Pasadena and all the staff there are always so very friendly and welcoming!"- T.H. / Yelp / Jun 16, 2022
"I had the ZO Ultimate Regeneration Treatment with Claudia. She is amazing and very knowledgeable! She could tell I’m a side sleeper by looking at my skin knowledgeable. After my treatment, I had an e-consult with Mae. She created a skin care regimen for me to address the acne on my chin. Shelly helped me color code my regimen so it’s easier to follow. And, she also helped me find the best deals so I don’t have to break the bank. Overall amazing experience!!! I can’t wait to be back and start this skin care journey with them.(PS there’s parking in the back of the building)"- A.L. / Yelp / Sep 11, 2021
You may be considered to be a candidate for Kybella® injections if you meet these stipulations:
- You are 18 years of age or older
- You have great skin elasticity in your neck area
- You have loose skin on your neck or jaw line
- You are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- You have moderate-to-severe submental fat that will not go away regardless of diet and exercise
- You have infection-free skin on the chin and neck
- You are willing to try a nonsurgical treatment for your "double chin" instead of invasive surgery or surgery is not an option for you
- You have medical conditions that make it hard to swallow, blood clotting disorders, or allergies to any ingredient in the medication
Of course, we will go over a thorough list of medical questions, perform a physical examination of the treatment area, and go over the details of your personalized Kybella® treatment plan.
What to expect
During your treatment session, you will be in one of our minor procedure rooms to be prepared for your injections. Our medical team will gently ready your chin area; the area will be cleansed. If the pain is a concern, we can administer a numbing gel to your skin before the needle is inserted. We will apply a chin grid just like a temporary tattoo. This will allow your injector to give you precise injections on your skin. Using a fine needle, the Kybella® will be injected right under the skin at each dot of the grid. Once all of the dots have been injected, we will provide you with an ice pack to help with the swelling and slight burning sensation you may experience under your skin. If you feel the after burn, please know that is the deoxycholic acid working on your fat cells. This side effect should resolve itself within the day of treatment. You will have swelling and redness in the area, and you should use an ice pack to soothe until the sensations fade away. Most of our Kybella® patients need 3 – 5 treatment sessions spread out a month apart. This can be determined by the amount of submental fat treated with Kybella® or how fast your body reacts to the drug.
