Kybella®is an injectable, non-surgical medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, a condition called submental fullness (i.e. “double chin”)
Submental fullness can be caused by weight gain, genetics, or aging. You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin! And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away.
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you are left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.
