Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved prescription medication used to eliminate fat under your chin. Here are just a few reasons to consider Kybella:

  • You’re unhappy with the profile of your chin
  • Stubborn fat deposits remain despite diet and exercise
  • You’d like results without the risks associated with surgery

Many people feel that fat deposits below their chin make them look older or heavier than they are. Kybella offers a minimally invasive way to reduce the appearance of a double chin.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is an injectable medication made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by your body. Deoxycholic acid breaks down and absorbs fat from the foods you eat. It performs that same function when injected into the fat deposits under your chin.

During each appointment, your provider uses a tiny needle to deliver multiple Kybella injections, ensuring that the medication is distributed evenly throughout the treatment area. Once injected, Kybella targets and destroys fat cells: They can no longer store or hold fat, which reduces or eliminates the appearance of a double chin.

Kybella has been the focus of more than 20 clinical studies in various countries around the world, and more than 1,600 individuals received Kybella treatment as part of that research. In fact, it’s the only FDA-cleared medication for treating submental fullness.

How many Kybella treatments do you need?

Every patient has a unique set of needs and goals, but you’ll likely require multiple Kybella treatments. During an initial consultation, you’ll discuss your goals with your provider, who will estimate how many sessions you need relative to the amount of fat under your chin.

Treatments are spaced one month apart, and you probably won't receive more than six treatments in total.

How long will the effects of Kybella last?

As stated earlier, Kybella compromises the structural integrity of the targeted fat cells. As a result, they can’t store fat and your body eventually absorbs them. Subsequently, Kybella is a lasting treatment option: Once you’ve achieved your desired results, additional maintenance treatments aren’t required.
