What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is a prescription injection used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
HOW KYBELLA® WORKS
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.
KYBELLA® Injections Before and After
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH KYBELLA®
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. With each Kybella treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of Kybella injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
