Additional Information


Kybella is the only FDA approved injectable treatment to permanently destroy fat cells under the chin, also known as submental fullness. Once the cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. You will not need any additional treatments once you have achieved your desired look.

KYBELLA®  may be right for you if:

• You’re 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 don’t want to have surgery
• You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away


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 fullnes 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.
