KYBELLA injection treats submental fullness. This is fullness in the chin area, better known as “double chin”. KYBELLA is the only FDA approved injectable to treat this area, reducing and contouring under the chin.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA, deoxycholic acid, also occurs naturally in the body. It works by breaking down fat in the chin area. It destroys fat cells and, once this happens, these cells cannot store fat.
Several treatments are required, spaced at least four weeks apart. Usually 6 – 8 weeks between treatments is best. Typically, 2 – 3 treatments are required. Once the fat has been destroyed, and you have achieved the desired result, retreatment should not be necessary as these cells will no longer store fat.

- $1,000 per treatment for the first two treatments
