KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
If you are unhappy or self-conscious by fat under your chin, also known as submental fullness or “double chin”, if you feel the conditions makes you look older or heavier than you actually are, if you don’t want to undergo surgery to remove it, if you eat well and exercise but it still does not go away, Kybella could be just right for you!
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.
Our physician assistants are KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialists. 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.
