What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is a prescription injection used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat under the chin (double chin fat).
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.
Preparing for Treatment
Kybella is performed right in your doctor’s office. After determining if you are a good candidate, multiple injections will be administered under the chin. The procedure takes between 15 and 20 minutes. Typically, 3 to 6 treatments are necessary to achieve your desired result.
