What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin”. It is not known if KYBELLA is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if KYBELLA is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
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.
How many treatments of KYBELLA is needed?
Your KYBELLA treatment regimen will be customized for you based on your desired chin profile, including how many treatments you will need. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 sessions. During these sessions, KYBELLA will be administered into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be needed spaced no less than one month apart.
