KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, otherwise known as the “double chin.” It is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women.
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.
Treatment with KYBELLA™ is customized by our nurses to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile. Once the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, retreatment is not expected. It may take 2-6 sessions to achieve desired results. Results will vary client to client.
