KYBELLA® - say goodbye to your double chin!
Product Alert: Now there is a treatment for your double chin! The FDA has approved KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, which contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness due to submental fat. Submental fullness, also known as “double chin,” can affect adult women and men of all ages and weights, and is influenced by multiple factors, including aging and genetics. Submental fullness is often resistant to diet and exercise, and according to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68 percent of people said they are bothered by their double chin.
KYBELLA™ is a formulation of a naturally occurring-substance (deoxycholic acid) that targets and destroys fat cells in the area where it’s injected. Once those cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Once the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, re-treatment is not expected to be required.

What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA approved injectable to remove chin fat. Traditionally chin fat, medically referred to as submental fullness, has been treated with liposuction. Kybella does what liposuction can do – permanently remove chin fat (double chin) – all without invasive surgery!
How does KYBELLA® Work?
KYBELLA®’s active component, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into fat, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells under the skin. The body then removes the destroyed fat cells and eliminates them through the liver.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A series of 3 or more treatments are recommended as each session removes more fat. Treatments are typically spaced one to two months apart. Complimentary consultations are available for this exciting new procedure.
What are possible KYBELLA® side effects?
The most common side effects are typically local to the treatment area and most commonly include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, tingling, hardness and redness. KYBELLA™ can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
