Mature Woman with Double Chin Receiving Injection in Clinic, Clo



Kybella a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occuring bile enzyme in the gut, is an injectable treatment that dissolves fat cells, to reduce areas of excess fat. Because the product kills fat cells, results can be very long-lasting or even permanent.

It’s the only FDA-approved cosmetic injectable for permanently reducing submental fat, also known as a double-chin.

Kybella can also be used "off-label" to treat other small areas of fat on the body, including above the knees and elbows, upper arms, “bra bulge”, “banana roll” and abdomen.

Each Kybella treatment session requires multiple injections in the targeted area, and patients typically need a series of treatment sessions to see significant results.
