KYBELLA

ABOUT

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

APPLICATIONS

- If you have submental fullness
- You feel the condition makes you feel older or heavier than you actually are
- For patients who don’t want to have surgery
- If you are bothered or self-conscious by excess fat under the chin (submental fullness)

POST-OP CARE

After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform us if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing or injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site.
