Kybella is an injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin”. The gathering of excess fat can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight. The active ingredient in Kybella is a deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.


This treatment may be right for you if:

  • you are bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness

  • you feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are

  • you don't want to have surgery

  • you eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away

You don't have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin or other stubborn areas. Sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce submental fullness, also known as “double chin”, Kybella may be right for you. Kybella is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. After being treated with Kybella, patients reported greater improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and looking younger based on their chin profile. They also reported feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight, and less bothered by the fullness under their chin or other stubborn areas. Working as a corrective treatment, Kybella satisfies the desire for natural and sharp facial line as well as improvement for the appearance of slender body. Since everyone's chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your service provider will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.
