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.” This is an exciting addition to the aesthetic industry where you can obtain surgical results without the risks associated with surgery.
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet under-treated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):2 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin. People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.
Frequently Asked Questions
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. This is a great non-surgical solution to help resolve submental fullness.
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile.
