Kybella is a prescription medicine injection used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells. 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. The destroyed fat is flushed through your body’s natural metabolism.
Depending on the severity of the submental fat, the number of treatments may vary. Up to six treatments may be administered at one month intervals. The average client is 1-3 treatments. With little to no downtime, this procedure is a great non-invasive way to remove excess submental fat.
