What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is a treatment that can help to improve double chin fat without surgical intervention. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is a synthetic deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body, that when injected, melts fat away.

KYBELLA® Overview 

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.

Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Administering Kybella®

Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

What to expect from KYBELLA®?

Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist.

At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.
