What Is Kybella®?

Kybella® is the only FDA-approved, nonsurgical procedure that helps lift the look of your submental triangle, also known as the area where fat can build up beneath your chin. The injection treatment uses a synthetic deoxycholic acid, which targets the fat in the area to give you a more defined, slim chin profile. If you are 21 years old or older, you can receive injections to help remove the moderate or severe fat beneath your chin.

How Kybella® Works

When you decide to receive Kybella® treatment, you receive injections during monthly visits to ensure you achieve the profile you desire. The number of injections and treatments we use depends on your unique needs and provider assessment. Whenever you visit, a nurse practitioner will insert multiple small injections around your planned site. Each procedure can take 15 to 20 minutes.

The active ingredient in the injections, synthetic deoxycholic acid, works to target the fat cells in your under chin area. Deoxycholic acid helps break down and absorb dietary fat. Human bodies naturally produce this acid, but injecting a synthetic version can help you directly target specific areas, like the area beneath your chin.

The Kybella® treatment can destroy the fat cells under the chin, so the area no longer stores or accumulates fat. Most people start seeing their slimmer chin profile results within four to eight weeks. Once all the fat cells are dissolved, the area can no longer store new fat cells, so you can enjoy the permanent results of the procedure.

Benefits of Kybella®

Kybella® treatment provides many benefits for those who want to improve their chin profiles, such as:

  • Targeted slimming for genetic under chin fat
  • Injectable, noninvasive treatment with fewer risks compared to surgical liposuction
  • Gradual and subtle results that last permanently
  • Quick procedures with minor downtime
