KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”. It works by disrupting the fat cell membrane, which leads to the loss of fat in the treated areas.
What areas can be treated with Kybella?
Kybella is approved for treatment of the double chin.
How long do results from Kybella injections last?
Results from Kybella should be permanent because once the fat cells in the treated areas disappear, they do not come back.
Are Kybella injections painful?
Kybella treatments are not painful and patients can have their double chins numbed with numbing cream prior to treatment to reduce any discomfort.
How long does a Kybella treatment last and how many Kybella treatments do I need to see results?
Kybella treatments typically last about 15-20 minutes and most patients will see a response after two treatments but some patients will require more treatments depending on the amount of fat that is present.
