Kybella ® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys submental fat cells (otherwise known as a “double chin”) without surgery. Its active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, helps break down hard-to-lose fat in the treatment area under the chin to improve your overall profile. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
This double-chin treatment was a 2015 Allure® best of beauty breakthrough award recipient.
Although Kybella is indicated for use under the chin, we also have some creative ways to use it on jowls, “bra fat” near the armpit and above the knee, among other areas.
Kybella Before & After
Many patients experience visible results after 2-4 treatments. After Kybella treatments, there is minimal downtime, and you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin.
