KYBELLA®

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

How does KYBELLA® work?

KYBELLA’s active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.  When injected into the submental fat deposits under the chin, KYBELLA® destroys the fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness. Once destroyed, these fat cells no longer have the ability to store or accumulate fat.  Once you reach your desired aesthetic objective, you no longer need additional treatments.

What to expect from your KYBELLA® treatments

Before starting your injection treatment, your KYBELLA® specialist will examine the area under the chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you.  We personalize a custom treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.

How is KYBELLA® applied?

A KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist can only administer treatment.  Each session consists of multiple small injections under your chin.  The process takes between 15 to 20 minutes.  The number of injections depends on your desired profile and the amount of fat in the treatment area.

How many KYBELLA® sessions will I need?

The number of sessions differs from patient to patient based on aesthetic goals and submental fat distribution.  Each session is performed at least one month apart and should not exceed six treatments.

What is the recovery time?

After each KYBELLA® treatment session, you will have some swelling, bruising or numbness under your chin.

What should I tell my doctor before treatment?
