When even diet and exercise is ineffective, Kybella® can be used as a non-surgical treatment to reduce fullness beneath the chin, sometimes referred to as submental fullness. Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
Kybella®’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin.
Kybella® is given as a series of injections into the fat under the chin.
Kybella® is administered over a series of treatments with permanent effects.
Patients may experience bruising, swelling, and/or discomfort at the injection sites; thus, it is recommended to schedule an injection one week ahead of an important meeting or event.
