Kybella

The First & Only Injectable Double Chin Treatment

Do you feel like you have extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve always had, or developed over the years. Although typically referred to as a double chin, this is a condition called submental fullness. Kybella® is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. Kybella® is a commercial name for the main property in this injection – synthetic deoxycholic acid.

Benefits of Kybella®

Kybella® breaks down fat cells in the injection area, and once those cells are destroyed, cells called macrophages come in and clear away the remnants and promote new collagen growth. Additional benefits of this treatment include minimal downtime, with patients resuming normal activities right away. It also has very minimal side effects, typically minor redness or swelling after the initial procedure. Lastly, compared to Botox and fillers, Kybella® was specifically created to treat the double chin area. 

Kybella®

The only FDA approved injectable to permanently destroy unwanted fat cells.
