Excess neck fat in the submental area — the “double chin” — is a common aesthetic concern for many. The ideal KYBELLA® candidate is someone with excess neck fat who wants to avoid surgery or liposuction.
KYBELLA® Is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin — the “double chin.”
You are bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
You do not want surgery
KYBELLA® is not used as a “skin tightener” and will not lift loose or sagging skin. remove creases, augment, plump or enhance the tone of the neck.
How KYBELLA® works:
The active ingredient in KYBELL is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Decoxycholic 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 permanently, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Further treatment is not expected once you reach your aesthetic goal
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from person to person. KYBELLA® treatment sessions are given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
How is KYBELLA® administered?
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under you chin, and the injection process takes about 15 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
