What Is Kybella™?

KYBELLA Product ImageKYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. KYBELLA™ is a nonsurgical, 15- to 20-minute in-office treatment session. It is customized to help you achieve your treatment goals by destroying fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected. The most common side effects of KYBELLA™ include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.


“At 41, I’m feeling more confident in my appearance than I did before KYBELLA™. Now, when I look in the mirror, I’m happy with how I look and feel. I don’t feel like I’m trying to hide something anymore.”—Amy, age 41

What Is Submental Fullness?

Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Causes may include:

  • Aging: It may naturally develop as you age
  • Genetics: Simply said, it may be part of your DNA
  • Weight gain: It may be a result of gaining weight

Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away and can make you look older and heavier than you actually are.

If You’re Bothered By It, You’re Not Alone

According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) 67% of people said they’re bothered by submental fullness.

How Does Kybella™ Work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
