According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of people are bothered by the excess fat beneath their chin. Submental fullness due to fat can be caused by genetics, weight gain, and again—and even with diet and exercise, that unwanted fullness beneath the chin won’t always go away.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. It is a non-surgical, in-office treatment that is customized to achieve your goals. The product is injected into the fat beneath your chin and destroys the fat cells. For most patients, two treatments may be required. The side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

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, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
Your provider will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
