What is Kybella?
Kybella is a FDA prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called the double chin. Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
How is Kybella administered?
- At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
- Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.
- Each treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
