KYBELLA® is an injection that helps to reduce the amount of fat beneath the chin. This layer of fat is known as submental fat or as a double chin. This injection can be used in an effective manner to improve the profile of an adult’s jawline and help contour the chin to make it look more esthetically pleasing.

How it works

Synthetic deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in this injection. Deoxycholic acid is naturally occurring in the human body and helps to breakdown dietary fat. KYBELLA® contains synthesized versions of this organic compound in order to break down and absorb fat cells in the submental area. 


A majority of patients receive around six treatments to complete the entire procedure. This is dependent on your area of concern and treatment goals.
