The only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that is designed to treat submental fullness. Submental fullness is the fat under the chin area which is also commonly referred to as “double chin”. This condition often leaves women and men feeling unhappy and highly self-conscious, particularly since it can be harder to treat via diet and exercise. There are many reasons that lead to submental fullness, including genetics and weight loss. Previously, the only treatments available to remedy this issue were surgical, however, now with Kybella, clients have a great, noninvasive treatment alternative!
The active ingredient in Kybella aids the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a contouring of the chin area. Treatments are typically 15-25 minutes long and the number of treatments varies by patient, depending on the amount of fat and desired profile. Results are typically visible after two treatments.
How it Works
Kybella uses a specialized serum with deoxycholic acid as its primary component. This acid effortlessly destroys fat cells and prevents them from regrowing. Aside from its ability to melt fat, Kybella’s most promising feature is its ability to completely remove fat deposits, allowing patients to enjoy their results for a lifetime.

Before & After
Frequently Asked Questions
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is 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® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
