What is Kybella?
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of subcutaneous fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile and sharpened jawline.
How Many Treatments Do Clients Need?
Kybella typically requires multiple treatment sessions several weeks apart to achieve the desired results. The number of treatments needed will depend on the amount and location of the fat and your individual goals and needs. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 Kybella treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
