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.”
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 the chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Most patients achieve their desired results following 2 to 3 treatment sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart. During these sessions, your physician will administer KYBELLA into the fat under your chin using multiple injections.
After the desired aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA is not expected as results are permanent.
