What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-Approved injectable for adults that improves the appearance your profile by destroying fat cells beneath the chin, your so-called “double chin.”

Is KYBELLA® right for me?

KYBELLA® might be for your if you are bothered by fat under your chin, also known as submental fullness, or you feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are. You should also consider Kybella if you want to reduce your double chin without surgery, you eat well and exercise, but the extra fat doesn’t go away.

How KYBELLA® works

The active ingredient in KYBELLA®is synthetic 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 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® is a prescription medicine 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 for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.
