Kybella™ Double Chin Treatment at a Glance

  • Treatments are nonsurgical and take about 15 to 20 minutes
  • In initial studies, most patients needed 2 to 4 treatments.  Some patients required 6 treatment sessions in order to achieve results.
  • Treatments are typically 6 to 8 weeks apart.
  • Since Kybella™ treatments destroy fat, it is not expected that patients would need to re-treat in the future.
  • Most common side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and firm areas in the treatment area.  Side effects tend to diminish with each treatment (treatments get easier), and were temporary in the studies.

More About Kybella™ Double Chin Treatment

Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness (double chin).

Kybella™ is made of Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb fat.  When it is injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella™ causes destruction of the fat cells.  Once the fat cells are destroyed, the amount of fat causing a full or double chin is reduced.
