KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable 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.”
How Does it 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.
What can I expect during the treatment?
KYBELLA® is injected into the fat under your chin using a series of injections. Multiple treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
What are the results?
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.
Is it Safe?
There is minimal to no downtime with KYBELLA®. You can resume normal activity following the procedure. You’ll likely experience swelling, bruising, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area, which should fade within a few days.
