What Is Kybella?

Kybella is a nonsurgical injection technique used to reduce excess fat beneath the chin.

The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells in this area.

No incisions are required, and the downtime is minimal in most cases.

Each treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

What Is Kybella Made From?

Kybella uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid.

Candidates For Kybella

The best candidate for a Kybella injection is an adult 18 years or older with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin.

You might not be a good candidate if you have had or are planning to have facial surgery, if you have trouble swallowing, if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you have an infection or medical condition in or near the planned injection site.

A 2015 consumer survey done by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) found that 67 percent of individuals are bothered by excess fat under the chin or neck.

Kybella The Only FDA-Approved Injectable Treatment

Kybella is currently the only FDA-approved injectable to treat the appearance of a double chin.

Get Rid Of A Double Chin Without Surgery

A shot that dissolves fat will offer people with a double chin a way to get rid of it without surgery.

The FDA Says:

  • Kybella is identical to something your body makes called deoxycholic acid, which helps to absorb fats.
  • It works by destroying fat cells. It can also destroy other kinds of cells, including skin cells, if it is not used correctly.

The Kybella shot is an alternative to liposuction or surgery to treat double-chin fat.
