    What is Kybella?

    Maybe that extra fullness beneath your chin is something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This may be a condition called submental fullness, or “double chin.”

    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.”

    • Individually tailored
    • Injectable
    • Permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin
    • Improves the chin profile

    You and your healthcare specialist will tailor a series of treatments for you based on:

    • How much fat is beneath your chin
    • Your aesthetic goals

    How does Kybella (deoxycholic acid) injection 10 mg/mL work?

    When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.
