KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved prescription nonsurgical treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA™ is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if KYBELLA™ is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.

The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

How does Kybella work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Is Kybella right for me?

Only you and your doctor can decide if KYBELLA™ is right for you. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, or double chin, ask our team about KYBELLA™.

What can I expect at my Kybella appointment?

You and one of our dermatologists will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Your dermatologist will give you a series of injections at each treatment session, which are spaced a month or more apart. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to 6 treatments may be administered.

Will I experience any side effects?

The safety profile of KYBELLA™ is well characterized. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area.

How long will the results last?

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA™ is not expected.
