KYBELLA® is a new prescription injectable approved by the FDA that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also known as “double chin.” It is the first ever non-evasive treatment option for removing double chin fat.
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® results in the destruction of fat cells.
The best candidate for KYBELLA® is anyone bothered by fat under the chin that does not want to have a surgical procedure to remove it.
Many patients treated with KYBELLA® experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments. Each treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
For most patients, downtime was minimal and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. When scheduling your treatments, keep your social plans and work commitments in mind. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, areas of hardness, pain, numbness, and redness in the treatment area.
