Since Kybella gained FDA approval in 2015, it has revolutionized the cosmetic injectable market. Doctors now have an injectable treatment to help patients that would like to get rid of their double chin. But what exactly is Kybella and what does it do.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for moderate-to-severe submental fullness (fat under the chin). It is a completely non-surgical treatment that transforms the chin and recontours the jawline.

What does Kybella do?

Kybella reduces fat below the chin, and refines the jawline. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and is used to metabolize dietary fat.

When Kybella is injected into the area below the chin it breaks apart the cell membrane, and the contents are released into the body. The body’s immune system then flushes out the dead cells.

A double chin can hide the contours of the neck and jawline, but Kybella removes the excess fat and gives the jawline a slimmer, more defined appearance.

How many treatments will I need?

A series of 2-6 Kybella treatments may be required to achieve optimal results.

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

Individuals that eat well and exercise, but can’t seem to get rid of that extra fat below the chin, are good candidates for Kybella. Candidates for Kybella should also have good skin elasticity, because it does not tighten the skin (click here to read more related articles).
