The first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of double chin .


The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body.  This aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a reduction in fullness under the chin. Once your aesthetic goal is reached, no further treatment is needed. 

Kybella FAQ

Does Kybella hurt?

Kybella involves minimal pain and discomfort. Before a Kybella treatment for your double chin, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area to reduce discomfort. Some patients describe a slight burning sensation during the injections, but the feeling subsides within minutes. After treatment, an ice pack helps ease any feeling of discomfort. 


How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Patients will need a series of up to two to four treatments, scheduled every 6 to 8 weeks for optimal results.


How long is a Kybella treatment?

Kybella is a relatively quick and easy procedure. Most patients are in and out within 30 minutes; most of the time is used to allow the topical numbing to work.
