How does KYBELLA® work?

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.

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called double chin.  

How long will the results last?

When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.

HOW Is KYBELLA® ADMINISTERED?

KYBELLA® is injected into the submental fat under your chin.  The injection process may take 15 - 20 minutes.  You will receive a series of injections at each treatment session.  Only you and your doctor can decide if KYBELLA® is right for you.
