Kybella Eliminates Chin Fat by Injection

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the only injectable treatment approved by the FDA for use under the chin. It destroys fat cells for permanent, slimming results. Say farewell to your double chin!

How does Kybella work to eliminate fat under the chin?

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.

Is Kybella right for me?

Kybella is the perfect procedure for you if:

  • You’re unhappy, selfconscious, or embarrassed by fat under the chin…
  • 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 the stubborn fat under your chin does not go away…

If any or all of these apply to you, you’re a great candidate for Kybella!


What will happen on my Kybella treatment day?

You will receive multiple small injections under your chin by a specially trained Kybella specialist. After Kybella treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. This will heal quickly, and you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment.

How many Kybella treatment sessions will I need?

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your Kybella specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of fat under your chin and your personal aesthetic goals. Each Kybella treatment session is given at least one month apart, and you should not receive more than six treatments.

How long does each Kybella treatment take?

The injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

How long does Kybella last?

Kybella delivers stunning, permanent results. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not needed once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
